« Festive Music » day: Viva Italia!

Roma, Amor. The palindrome is well known and readily justifies the popular association of Italy with love: a country whose capital bears such a name can only be favourable to Cupid’s emulators. There, the cliché goes, people love and desire each other, and the world is devoured with a mixture of violence and lightness. Life has the taste of happiness.

Of course, there are objective elements that have helped to support this theory: Stendhal affirms it, Giono believes it. How can we doubt it? Especially since Botticelli’s faces, Michelangelo’s statues, Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren are added to these guarantees…

And then there is the music. Where the shadow sometimes passes. Luigi Tenco’s voice singing mi sono innamorato di te; Fabrizio De Andrè’s voice crying for Marinella and her moon coat; Mina’s voice. San Remo in black and white.

Not to mention Nino Rota and his scores for Fellini; the death of Violetta, which Verdi makes so intimate for us; that of Mimi, which Puccini makes so familiar to us; the shadow of Callas among the gilding of La Scala. And Neapolitan songs, Sardinian polyphony, Sicilian processions, and the richness of the contemporary scene.

This year, the traditional “Festive Music” day will feature our illustrious transalpine neighbours. A whole variety of sounds will be on offer throughout the city. About ten free concerts will illuminate the streets of Sion and will allow a large audience to breathe a little sea air.

Attention Italophiles, music lovers… and lovers!
