“To Violetta Elvin, a splendid artist and a courageous woman, who allowed me to rediscover the love of freedom, the art of dance and the natural beauty of Vico Equense, the wonderful and incomparable homeland of my maternal grandparents.” The dedication of Raffaele Lauro to the protagonist of his new novel, “Dance The Love - A Star in Vico Equense”, sums up the spirit of the final work of “The Sorrentine Trilogy”. The highly anticipated novel preceded by a series of interviews given by the author will be presented in national première on Wednesday, 27th July at 7 pm in Vico Equense, in the square in front of the Church of the Holiest Annunciation in Vescovado Street. This significant cultural event with the choice of a symbolic location, unique in the world, was organized under the patronage of the Municipality of Vico Equense within the Social World Film Festival - The International Exhibition of Social Cinema (24 - 31 July 2016). The novel tells the human and artistic story of the great Russian dancer, Violetta Elvin, born Prokhorova and widow of Fernando Savarese, who will be the guest of honour of the evening. The welcome speech will be held by the Artistic Director of the Social World Film Festival, Giuseppe Alessio Nuzzo, followed by the welcome speech of the Mayor of Vico Equense, Andrea Buonocore. The debate will be coordinated by an Il Mattino journalist, Antonino Siniscalchi. Among the speakers: Professor Salvatore Ferraro, Solicitor Giuseppe Ferraro and Professor Angela Barba.
