“Lasciatemi divertire. Cucù rurù”
LetiziaAiros
●●
For starters: “
Cucù rurù,/ rurù
cucù,/cuccuccurucù!/Cosa sono
queste indecenze? Queste strofe
bisbetiche?/ Licenze, licenze,/
licenze poetiche!/ Sono la mia
passione
.” (Cocca docca, / docca
cocca, / cock-a-doodle-doo! /What
are these vulgarities, / these oafish
strophes? / Liberties, liberties, / poetic
liberties! / They’re my passion).
I said I would always open with some
lines of poetry. This month I’ve chosen
futurist poet Aldo Palazzeschi’s 1910
poem “E lasciatemi divertire” (Let Me
Have My Fun). So let’s have some
Italian-style fun these first days of
summer in NewYork, beginning with
the beautiful Futurism exhibit at the
Guggenheim. And to get ready before
heading to the museum, first check
out Steve Acunto’s excellent piece.
●●●●
Then there’s Italy’s Republic Day
Festival, spread out over two days
this year, on June 1st and 2nd, and
featuring music, special events, and
an Italian treasure hunt (see schedule
of events on p. 23).
What else? Flip through the magazine
and you’ll realize howmuch New
York has to offer by way of Italian
events, from the Open Roads festival,
herein discussed by organizer Antonio
Monda, to the Summer Fancy Food
Show, the massive enogastronomy fair
that, as Italian Trade Commissioner
PierPaolo Celeste explains, continues
to attract more and more Italian
participants.
The issue also features several
in-depth articles on a wide range of
subjects. Stefano Albertini’s interview
withWalter Veltroni, in town to
present his new film about Enrico
Berlinguer, a key 20th century Italian
politician. In a moving encounter
with Flavio Manzoni, Ferrari’s chief of
design opens up about
Madreterra
,
his recent project, the proceeds for
which will help rebuild a school in
Sardinia destroyed by a flood last year.
In our “Bookshelf” section, Anthony
J. Tamburri takes a look at
Italoamericana
, an anthology of
writings on, about and from the great
Italian migration, edited by Francesco
Durante and finally translated into
English. And musician Mauro Pagani
talks about remixing
Crêuza de
, his experimental-cum-historic
Mediterranean album recorded thirty
years ago with the great Fabrizio De
Andrè.
Our tourism section is dedicated to
the Langhe region, in particular the
city of Alba, with entrepreneur Oscar
Farinetti and singer-songwriter
Gianmaria Testa as our guides. Both
men show us that the city is not just
about truffles and wine. Ah, Italy,
country of endless surprises!
And, last but not least, Lucia
Pasqualini bids goodbye as she
finishes her mandate as deputy
consul.We hope she’ll be back soon.
●●●●
There’s much more to mention, but
I only have so much room. Before I
sign off, however, I want to point out
this issue’s “Pasta Mania” insert,
which includes several recipes from
De Cecco that over the coming
weeks will be presented on our TV
show. If you’re interested, rip the
insert out and tuck it away in your
kitchen drawer. Just like an Italian
grandmother. Naturally, all you
grandchildren can find the recipes
on our website,
, or
using your smartphone. Speaking of
which, have you downloaded our app
for iPhone yet?
Alla prossima!
