SOUNDS OF ITALY

Instagram posts 2nd of May to 2nd of June 2020, during one month of a pandemic.

“Upcoming days I would like to share with you some impressions of sounds and settings of Italy from my travel last year (2019). The material is mainly from the beloved region of my family but also from other parts. Sending greetings of love and gratitude to Italy as well as hope for a prosperous future. Welcome to join this ride of memories that I would like to keep, that I have tried to frame .”

 

Signora! Bella mia balla con me! The enthralling tarantellian music, the setting in the picturesque harbor of San Marco/ Santa Maria di Castellabate and the unforgettable young old lady dancing all through the concert with her fan 🎶 Music by Rittantico.

Poseidonia 2500 years ago. Exploring the ancient skies. An evening visit under the stars. The rest the old Greeks can tell better 🎶Music by Rittantico  @santamariadicastellabate/San Marco

Marechiaro, at marechiare there’s a window. When the moon looks down even the fish make love / A Marechiare nce sta ‘na fenesta. Quanno sponta la luna a Marechiare pure li pisce nce fanno l’ammore. 🎶 Music performed by Anna Elena Masini, soprano, Antonio Maria Pergolizzi, pianoforte. @santamariadicastellabate/Trentova

Biking with the birds on a borrowed bike that shortly after got stolen. Sweet, bitter and short adventure in rural area of beautiful Agropoli. @agropoli

I am running with roses and crickets in the afternoon sun at Villa Matarazzo. Sounds are competing with eachothers about the space of happiness. My father’s voice is singing along in the background. 🎶Music performed by… searching for names… music by Ralph Bernet e Danyel Gérard. @santamariadicastellabate/Villa Matarazzo

Late Saturday night entertainment and we enjoy daily life characters coming alive arguing about the cheese / E mo ti spacco o provolone. @santamariadicastellabate

Flying free in the divine garden of holy love of nature, accompanied by sacral rehearsals from the local Santuario di Santa Maria a Mare 🎶 Il Divino Amore. Madre terra. @torchiara

Drunk by the delightful vineyard fields slowly sweeping a sweetalian serenade in the afternoon sunshine. 🎶 Interpreting Viola/Adriano Celentano. @torchiara

The beautiful longing, the sad missing, there is no perfect world. Echoes of the palazzo chiamato vita, of the generous Cilento landscape, of the challenging percorsi, of the beloved famiglia ed amici. And echoes of Vivaldi and Anna Thunström 🎶 Nulla in mondo pax sincera. @torchiara/Palazzo Baronale/Il cilento

The prelude and the suite. The ceiling and the sky. The tone and the soul. And we listened to the marimba dances of God performed by students in the middle of the national park palace setting 🎶 Cello Suite No.1 in G Major/J.S.Bach @torchiara/Palazzo Baronale/Il cilento

Star of the sea. Sotto la tua protezione cerchiamo refugio. Stella del mare, libera da ogni pericolo, il pescatore e chiunque è in difficoltà, che naviga nel mare della vita. 🎶 Interpreting Gente di mare/Giancarlo Bigazzi, Umberto Tozzi, Raffaele Riefoli. @agropoli/porto di agropoli

Travelling north through the eruptive lava landscape transformed into fertile ground. What a dramatic earthquake of little Vesuvio. Fragile and violent. Spectacular and destructive. 🎶Ballata dell’amore cieco/Fabrizio de André. @napoli

After a delicious and sweaty lunch close to Napoli Centrale we strolled to the generous and cool chapel of Swedish Sankta Birgitta. Later in the evening, the sound of my friend Anna’s shoes against the slippery hard ancient stone floor and the morbid crusty freshly made verace pizza alla napoletana, all melted together. @napoli

Defender of the vernacular, Dante, all’unita d’Italia, De Vulgari Eloquentia… se fosse così allora il volgare che stava per diventare la lingua ufficiale in Italia era il napoletano… @napoli/piazza dante

Scalo Porto di Amalfi 🎶 Ncopp’a stu duomo, ‘nnanze a ‘sta marina,
stammo a vedé che fa, che vò’ ‘sta luna. Marinaio, rema / Row seaman, at the harbour, facing the the church, we are wondering about the meaning of the moon. @amalfi

Bathing in the baroc fountain of three roads, magic water and money for charity 🎶 Poi, dolce vita che te ne vai. Sul Lungotevere in festa. Concerto di viole e mondanità. Profumo tuo di vacanze romane. Monetina e voilà. C’è chi torna e chi va. 🎶 Antonella Ruggiero/Giancarlo Golzi, Carlo Marrale. @roma

Cerco l’estate tutto l’anno, e all’improvviso eccola qua. Un momento per chiacchierar. Il pomeriggio è troppo azzurro, prendo il treno di desideri e vengo vengo da te 🎶 Adriano Celentano / Azzurro. @roma

O Sole Mio, Piazza Navona, Rome… could it be more romantic? Or touristic? However, the lyrics, originating from Napels, tell about a love greater than the sun. Could it be about the wonderful gelato. @roma

Freedom in the streets of Florence and in between the arches of the square. @firenze

Zigzagging the caruggi streets of Genova, finding an empty one in the outer edge of this enormous historical center of Europe. Finding myself with eyes and heart wide open to all the mystery and beauty of this city, in good company with the words of Paolo Conte: Con quella faccia un po’ così, quell’espressione un po’così, che abbiamo noi che abbiamo visto Genova. @genova

Still strolling the streets of Genova. Imagining the seamen returning to the enormous harbour, from the wild waves, searching for home and safety. “Ho paura. Ti amo.” Twelve letters waiting on the wall, expressing the human nature and deepest needs. @genova

Bargaining in Borgo Bitti in Barbagia and breathing the most authentic relics of the archaic roots of Sardinian culture passed down over centuries 🎶 Cantu a Tenòre. @bitti

This was a ride of memories that I would like to keep, that I have tried to frame. Between 2nd of May until 2nd of June I have shared some impressions of sounds and settings of Italy from my travel last year. @bitti
