Anniversario della morte di Vincenzo Bellini

GIORNATA CELEBRATIVA PER IL 180° ANNIVERSARIO DELLA MORTE DI VINCENZO BELLINI

Anniversario della morte di Vincenzo BelliniVincenzo Salvatore Carmelo Francesco Bellini was one of the most important composers of Italian opera in his time. He was born in 1801 in Catanina, Sicily, to a family already steeped in music; his father and grandfather were both career musicians. He began composing before receiving any formal music education. Bellini developed a reputation for fine craftsmanship, particularly in the way he forged an intricate relationship between the music and the libretto. To perform one of his operas, singers required extremely agile voices. His abilities and talent earned him the admiration of other composers, including Berlioz, Chopin, and even Wagner, and his flowing, exquisitely sculpted vocal lines represent the epitome of the bel canto ideal.

The New Music

la Stagione Lirica 2014

Il caffè delle meraviglie

The New Music International Weeks (Settimane internazionali di nuova musica), took place in the 1960s and brought Palermo to worldwide attention in the musical and cultural debate, thanks to the enthusiasm of a group of young intellectuals including Antonino Titone, Francesco Agnello, Paolo Emilio Carapezza, Roberto Pagano and Eliodoro Sollima.
As we treasure the memory of such exciting times in the field of New Music, we think it is also time to approach this theme again, putting the experience into perspective and questioning the state of the art today.

The Teatro Massimo has decided to establish a Festival in 2014, Nuove Musiche, that will offer the general public, both local and international, a glimpse into contemporary music as well as 20th century historic and avant-garde music.
The truly interdisciplinary spirit of the Settimane will be kept alive thanks to many collateral activities and in-depth analysis debates.
With Nuove Musiche the Teatro Massimo strengthens its bond with the University of Palermo and with Palermo Conservatory of Music “V. Bellini” (whom is also going to participate to the Festival with initiatives that are being planned and will complement Teatro Massimo programme) and hopes that this festival will be an opportunity for dialogue with the city’s other institutions.

Tickets
• Concerts staged in the Teatro Massimo Sala ONU and Foyer – € 5.

• September 28 Concert (8:30pm) – € 5.

• October 3 Concert (8:30pm) – from € 10 to € 30.

• Concerts staged at the Steri and the Conservatory of Music, October 5 walking concert, conferences, video festival: free entrance.

Gangi for sale – 1,30 € per house

Vernissage del 1 aprile alla galleria Falzone

Gangi (Italy) (AFP) – It’s an offer you can’t refuse: rustic abodes in a picturesque hilltop village on the island of Sicily, once home to Italian peasants and their donkeys, are up for sale for just one euro.

Hewn into the Madonie mountains and dotted throughout the town of Gangi, the houses were left empty after their owners emigrated in the 1920s. They boast period features such as 18th-century tiles, original wood-burning ovens and wooden beams, along with spectacular views.

Around 20 houses are on sale for one euro ($1.30), with another 300 or so going for up to 15,000 euros in an initiative the village hopes will reverse decades of population decline and boost the local economy even as Italy falls back into recession.

Australian film director Dominic Allen is one of a crowd of potential buyers from the United States, Britain, Dubai and Sweden who have rushed to Gangi to snap up a bargain and transform the sparse living spaces and animal stalls into summer homes.

“You couldn’t buy a parking space in Australia for the price of this house,” Allen said, gazing around a narrow three-story building with a rudimentary kitchen cut out of the rocks and views of wheat fields and woods in the valley below.

“In many ways if you like the Italian lifestyle and you’re into a bit of adventure, it seems like a fun thing to do,” said the 33-year-old, who was looking for a place he could use with friends or rent out to tourists.

Buyers must put down a guarantee of 5,000 euros for the council to ensure they renovate the properties within three years, with the cost estimated at 20,000 euros to make the homes habitable — more for those that need re-roofing.

Sheltering from the harsh midday sun under the arches of a medieval tower in the town centre, Cataldo Piazza, 83, said he was delighted to see families of Italian and foreign tourists filling the streets, drawn by the one-euro offer.
