Ambrogio SparagnaSunday, October 5 Ambrogio Sparagna and Italian Popular Orchestra will perform at the Pauline Chapel of the Palazzo del Quirinale. The event is scheduled for 11.50 am and will be able to listen to the concert live on Radio 3. The accordion player from Maranola, in the province of Latina, will perform in a show titled “Trenches of the heart. Popular Songs of the First World War”, during which will be performed songs that tell “the hardness and the atrocities of war, but also loves away, filial affection, nostalgia for the abandoned house, sometimes using irony and goliardia to exorcise the fear of death. Along with those Italians will also be presented Hungarian, Slovenian, Austrian and Croatian Serbs songs, that reflect the same situations and the same feeling minds”. In addition to Sparagna, vocals and accordions, the Orchestra Popolare Italiana – an orchestra now well tried and tested that has had the opportunity to perform in the most important international contexts, such as the World Music Expo (WOMEX), which was held in Copenhagen in 2009 – consists of the following musicians: Eleonora Bordonaro (voice) Raffaello Simeoni (vocals, popular woodwinds, mandola), Nando Citarella (vocals and percussion), Clara Graziano (accordion), Christian Califano (guitar), Erasmo Treglia (shawm, hurdy-gurdy, violin), Diego Micheli (bass), Alessia Salvucci (tambourine), Gabriella Gabrielli (voice), Anna Rita Colaianni (the direction of the Coro Popolare).
