10TH ITALIAN LANGUAGE WEEK IN ADELAIDE
The initiatives of the 10th Italian Language Week have not disappointed admirers of our language in Adelaide.
The original reading of Pasolini’s poetry by Mimmo Mangione and Anna Sciavilla, accompanied by the delicate musical improvisations of Domenico De Clario, impressed the audience for its interpretative rigour and creation of a thoughtful and at times passionate mood.

Some original music from young composers was enjoyed by a number of university students who attended a performance at Elder Hall. The music was masterfully performed by three virtuoso musicians after a prefatory reading by De Clario. The venue was obtained with the kind assistance of Prof. Whittington. Maestro Carlo Forlivesi brought the evening to a close with his expert lecture on the technical and cultural contexts of the compositions.

Students of Course 3B at the University of South Australia, Magill Campus, impressed everyone with the richness of their readings on stage, for the historical content and for the human interest and originality of the personal stories, honouring in the best way the competence of their lecturer Milena Ciroli.

The interaction guided by Corinna Di Niro on the mimics of the Commedia dell’Arte involved and entertained a crowded audience, who left the Higher Ground Theatre with servant steps or Arlecchino’s smirk.

But the most amused and entertained were the 483 primary schools students and 530 secondary school students. The attached photos show clearly the fun that was had by all.
