Catanzaro hosts the 11th season of of its Festival d’autunno, the theme this year being Musica dal mondo or "World Music". The event boasts performances by Italian favorites, including the soulful Fabrizio Bosso, pop-rockabilly singer-songwriter Nina Zilli, swingy Ray Gelato, internationally-famous jazz guitarist Al Di Meola, and fado chanteuse Margarida Guerreiro.
Given that we are still in the Year of Faith (an event wanted very much by Pope Benedict XVI), the programme unites music and religion, sacred and profane, in the search for foundational values on which to construct one’s life.
Three encounters are to be held with eminents of our times both lay and religious, adding their own notes and rhythms to the Festival. Every evening sees a different genre, yet every evening is bonded by a common underlying thread. Expect thoughtful discourse and reflections, as well as energetic musical numbers by both Italian and international musicians, amidst the setting of this Calabrian city’s prestigious Teatro Politeama.
Where: Teatro Politeama
