Le canzoni di Calvino“Italo Calvino and years of songs” is the title of an extraordinary book, which came out for editions Betelgeuse (in the series Andromeda) by Enrico De Angelis and sponsored by the Club Tenco. As he explains the title, it is a collection of songs that Calvin wrote, especially in the fifties, and which were set to music by composers such as Sergio Liberovici, Fiorenzo Carpi, Piero Santi, Mario Peragallo, Luciano Berio. One of the most interesting emerging from the collection is the correspondence between the writing phase and the activity of certain persons who have contributed – in different ways and with different results – the affirmation of the revival of Italian folk music. On the one hand, in fact, the songs – many of which are almost impossible to find in the original versions – were born to Roman trials of Laura Betti. On the other they are linked (thanks mainly to the figure of Liberovici) the movement of Cantacronache, which defined a prospect of singing and writing collection by many songwriters of the sixties. The volume is accompanied by a CD audio with the nine songs written by Calvin (including December 19 marks the thirtieth anniversary of his death), interpreted by Grazia De Marchi accompanied on piano by Giannantonio Mutto.
