Verso Nuova York - Stories and Music of the Italian Migration

Mar 29, 2019 458

Wednesday, 04/17/2019 - 6:30pm. Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò at New York University, 24 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011-8604. Between the late 19th and early 20th centuries, hundreds of thousands of Italians left their country for the Americas. This performance uses words and music to tell their story: a story of hope and creativity that ended up changing those new lands into an appendix of the Italian motherland.

This tale is told thanks to the songs of those migrants and their voyages, from Mamma mia dammi cento lire to Ma se ghe penso, from Ciao Turin to Tragico naufragio del vapore Sirio. Elena Buttiero, piano; Ferdinando Molteni, vocals and guitar. In ENGLISH (songs in Italian) Produced by Associazione Culturale Allegro con Moto. Organized in collaboration with the Associazione Liguri nel Mondo (New York Chapter)
