L’evento è stato annunciato nel corso della promulgazione della “Carta
Artistica Universale” 2019 della Fondazione Marianna, Fondatrice e
Presidente Pinuccia Pitti. La “Carta Artistica Universale”, lo
ricordiamo, ha tra i suoi molti scopi ha quello di promuovere la
comunicazione e il dialogo fra tutte le Nazioni, nella consapevolezza
dei Diritti e dei Doveri che questo comporta. I diritti umani sono il
fondamento della nostra società, ma la nostra società sarebbe ben poca
cosa se, a questi nobili concetti, non ci confrontassimo con il
diritto all’arte e alla cultura ed è per questa ragione che la
Fondazione Marianna, sempre restando ancorata ai suoi valori fondanti,
ha voluto aprire alla promozioni di giovani talenti nel campo
artistico.

Lo scopo di padre Kike, questo il soprannome
con cui è conosciuto Mons.Figaredo, nella sua missione a favore dei
disabili in una delle provincie della Cambogia maggiormente martoriate
dei residui di mine antiuomo disseminate nel territorio nel periodo
dei Khmer Rossi, è di dimostrare che un persona menomata e costretta
su di una carrozzina non è una persona inutile, bensì che il suo
apporto può dimostrarsi essenziale nell’odierna società.
Il ricavato della serata sarà devoluto in beneficenza per le attività
di Mons. Figaredo Alvargonzalez.
Ringrazio con affetto il grande fotografo Svizzero, Helmut Stampfli che è venuto da Lausanne, malgrado l’influenza.

In the Grand Ball Room, President Pinuccia Pitti invited many personalities to attend this special event, listening to poetry and music along with interesting speeches and reports by eminent specialists, such as Professor Laura Quadarella Sanfelice di Monteforte, Paolo Meucci, Antonella Cassisi and many others.

The opening of the event was granted to Princess Elettra Marconi Giovanelli, who shared with us some of her memories as a child of her father, Nobel Prize Professor Marquis Guglielmo Marconi. Her great sense of humour, together with her natural and spontaneous tone contributed to the warmest applause of the evening.

Right immediately after the Princess’ speech, came the time of the “Interculturality” moment, when a young student is rewarded for his particular skills, coping with intercultural aspects of life. An interesting introduction was done by Dottoressa Antonella Cassisi, UNESCO in Italy,

and the Prize was given by Colonello Massimo Palombelli, Director of the Italian Air Force Club to Adriano Pirandello, the great greatgrandson of Nobel Prize Luigi Pirandello, whose mother, Glenda Sevald is from Uruguay and Israel.

This year, the Marianna Foundation Prize for “Per non dimenticare” went to Maria Slodowska Curie for her lifetime works and studies. His Excellency Mr. Christian Masset, Ambassador of France in Italy came personnally to receive the Prize and the Polish embassy sent a lady from the cultural services.

The French Ambassador in his thanking remarks declared his emotion to receive this reward in the name of all French and his gratitude to such an emblematic character of Universal history, pointing out the fantastic works achieved by Marianna Foundation and its President Pinuccia Pitti, taking Art as a medium to spread world wide Human Rights ideals.

Dottor Pietro Lucchetti, from the Quirinale Palace, was proud to confer this special distinction to such a heartful and courageous Civil Servant.

29 December 2016, Gala Evening at the Rendano Opera Theatre in Cosenza: Love and Happiness through Music and Arias from Naples to Paris crossing Vienna…

20161230_024637-001

As reported in “L’Opera – International Magazine” of February 2017, the Opera Theatre of Cosenza, known as the “Rendano Theatre” hosted on 29th December 2016 a unique special Gala Evening, following the napolitan concept of “pastiche”, uniting in one show, music, opera and dance for the pleasure of the public.

16716091_10155833495990299_9089372055057141403_o

This initiative was due to our Beloved friend, Mrs. Luigia Pastore Fiorentino, who founded the Polimnia Association to promote opera and music, especially for young people (but not only!). She asked Maestro Vincenzo Grisostomi Travaglini and myself to imagine a kind of dream to be put on stage in a form of an oniric trip from Naples to Paris, crossing Vienna in order to lead the public to welcome the new year to come.

Sweet Silia Valente with the Choir “Sol Vox Cantori” in Traviata “Brindisi”

We decided to put together French Literature with Napolitan poems, “La Veuve Joyeuse” with “La Traviata” and many other jolly and colourful pieces of music and dance, so to have a delightful mixture of glamour and naughty songs to accompany our trip towards the end of 2016.
