SAN MARTINO VALLE CAUDINA CELEBRATES THE THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE PREMIÈRE PERFORMANCE OF LUCIO DALLA'S MASTERPIECE, “CARUSO” (SAN MARTINO VALLE CAUDINA, 17 AUGUST 1986 - 17 AUGUST 2016)

18-08-2016

To celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the première performance of Lucio Dalla’s masterpiece, “Caruso”, (San Martino Valle Caudina, 17 August 1986 - 17 August 2016) the Municipal Administration of San Martino Valle Caudina organised an event with the presentation of the third novel of “The Sorrentine Trilogy”, “Dance The Love - A Star in Vico Equense” by Raffaele Lauro, dedicated to the great Russian dancer, Violetta Elvin. Apart from being the honorary citizen of San Martino valle Caudina, Lauro has published three books about Lucio Dalla. One of them was the last year’s “Lucio Dalla and San Martino Valle Caudina - In the eyes and in the heart”. This book has immortalised the deep bond of the singer-songwriter from Bologna with the people from Valle Caudina, who still remember his extraordinary concerts organised by the pro Loco of Gianni Raviele on the stage area, such as the memorable one of 17th August 1986. The presenation will take place on Thursday, 25th Augsut at 5.30pm at the Council Chamber of the Town Hall of San Martino Valle Caudina in 1 Piazza Girolamo Del Balzo. The guests will be welcomed by Mayor Pasquale Pisano. The debate will be introduced and hosted by Francesco Bello, Councillor for Tourism and Entertainment. Among the speakers: solicitor Golda Russo and Professor of Literary Subjects Rino Hazan. The event will be concluded by Matteo Piantedosi, Deputy Head of State Police. Gianni Raviele, the former head of the cultural division of TG1, will hold a speech during the event. “I am honoured to return to San Martino Valle Caudina on the invitation of the Municipal Administration – said Lauro – which in continuity with the past does not want to disperse the historical heritage linked to the relationship between Lucio Dalla and the Sammartinesi. Dalla loved the sea of Sorrento and the Mountains of San Martino. It is he same love that Violetta Elvin, the protagonist of my novel, has nurtured and nurtures at the age of 93 for the Sorrentine coast and in particular for Vico Equense.” For further information on the works: www.carusothesong/dallaesanmartinovallecaudina; www.raffaelelauro.it/dancethelove/
