Albino Luciani: do not despair and believe in salvation towards a new era that we all want both of peace and justice. I strongly emphasize this given what has recently happened in Rome: with violence one does not build, one builds pain. On the other hand, celebrating Venice’s birthday in the name of music, we speak of beauty in a beautiful and ancient basilica of Marciana, with an intense pastoral, liturgical but also cultural activity, we speak of harmony “. The words of the president of the regional council echoed the general secretary of the council Roberto Valente: “Celebrating Venice in Rome also means bringing the Venetian culture, reaffirming our autonomy based on national unity: the link between the Basilica of St. from Paul II to the Venetians in Rome, is profound and is cemented in the name of Saint Mark whose lion, in Venetian iconology, holds the book of prophecy with that greeting ‘”Pax Tibi’ which, as President Zaia recalled, marks in the flag of our Region is more than eloquent ”. For the creator and curator of the initiative, Maestro Cristian Ricci, tenor and artistic director of the Lyric Laboratory of Veneto: “we are talking about a cultural proposal of great value inserted not by chance among the official events for the 1600th anniversary of Venice. It will be a sort of visiting card of the Venetian culture in Rome, a musical tribute that will have as protagonist at my side the Filarmonia Veneta Youth Orchestra conducted by Maestro Marco Titotto and with us the art historian Federica Morello. The presence of the Veneta Youth Orchestra, a new formation born within the Filarmonia Veneta Orchestra, is significant, testimony, as President Zaia said, of a project that is a symbol of recovery and that gives space to young testimonies and protagonists of the rebirth called to perform a very particular repertoire, respectful of the place that hosts us and of great technical commitment. All this was possible thanks to the sponsors who believed in this cultural proposal, Centro Banca, Aermec Spa, Gorent, Axa Assicurazioni, Ca ‘Pigneto ”. The evening’s program was illustrated by the Director of the Venetian Youth Orchestra, Marco Titotto “a repertoire suited both to the place hosting us and suitable for young people who have been chosen from among the Venetian Conservatories after a dense series of auditions. The great prayers of the classical repertoire will be performed, then instrumental pieces from Sibelius to Gounot up to William Gomez’s Ave Maria. Then a piece that, although not part of the religious repertoire, has a strong spiritual involvement and I speak of Mascagni’s Intermezzo della Cavalleria Rusticana, then a tribute to Ennio Moricone, then Bizet, and at the end of the concert, at the end of the concert, at the end of the evening, the Hymn to Joy from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony because this concert is a tribute by us Venetian artists in Rome in the Basilica of San Marco, a tribute open to the whole world ”.
