2013 Edition

The thirty-third edition of the Festival of Medieval Cities held in Fiuggi 2 to 12 August 2013  received the support of generous sponsors such as the City of Fiuggi, Lazio Region, the People’s Bank of Frusinate, the Cooperative Credit Bank of Fiuggi and the Company Bakery Segatori. The program took into account the diversity of the audience, some of whom prefer  a lightness of spirit and therefore we tried to follow a line of balance in the drafting of the program, while maintaining  a high quality of art. , The opening concert was entrusted to “Daniele Paris’ Chamber Orchestra”   directed by Vincenzo Mariozzi  who presented a program dedicated to the end 18th century beginning 19th century Italian song hosted by two young singers, soprano Giulia De Blasi and tenor Luciano Ganci, who won the M. Caniglia Laboratory lyric of Sulmona competition. Bydedicating the name of the festival orchestra in residence to Paris M°, we wanted to pay homage to an important artistic personality of the Italian scene, who did so much to raise the level of culture and music of the province, founding, among other things, the Conservatory of Music of the capital “Licinio Refice”. Particular attention has been given to the music of  the 1900s with authors such as G. Puccini, G. Martucci, R. Zandonai, U. Giordano, A. Catalani, V. Rieti.
The Festival celebrated the 200th anniversary of the birth of the genius of Giuseppe Verdi  hosted by the sopranoDenia Mazzola Gavazzeni and the pianist Marco Rapattoni presenting a program of rarely performed chamber music as the chamber Romance of the great master. , The most beautiful arias of Verdi  were revised in a modern and jazzy style . ..
Two internationally renowned conductors such as David Mukerian and Alan Smith were at the festival and other soloists such as Luca Signorini (in the role of conductor and soloist), Carlo pads, Nello Salza, Gaetano di Bacco, Bruno Jerome and Maurice Turriziani.
Noteworthy also was the concert dedicated to Argentina, “the daughter of Italian culture”, in which songs were performed by S. Callegaris and A. Ginastera, Italo-Argentine composers training. In conclusion, note the concert “Beyond the Boundaries” dedicated to the theme of integration between different ethnic groups and religions.
