  • From Sicily, “My beautiful cursed cradle,” to America. The artist from Palermo will sing at NIAF’s annual gala, and she will also be a guest of Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò at the end of November. She’s a young voice between the past and the future. Considered the spiritual winner of “The Voice of Italy 2015,” Salerno’s music is enchanting. As the original interpreter of Rosa Balistrieri, she has a repertoire that includes various genres. She also has a production under her own name. And surprise–she also plays the autoharp: “I began to study it after falling in love with June Carter and Johnny Cash.”
  • Appearances in Boston and New York in November for Italy’s “Prince of Singer-Songwriters”. After an award-winning career spanning nearly 50 years, De Gregori will finally make his US debut in November.
  • Members of the European Youth Orchestra from the Netherlands.
    Britain’s decision in 2016 to leave the European Union shook the foundations of the bloc, particularly within the arts world. The prestigious European Youth Orchestra (ages 16 to 26), headquartered for decades in London, relies heavily on EU funding to survive. However, once Britain leaves the Union, this funding will not remain available to the orchestra if it is based in the UK. In the face of extinction, the EUYO must turn to fresh solutions in order to survive.
  • As part of the celebrations for the 17th International Italian Language Week an array of special events that aim to promote Italian language and culture are scheduled all around the world. This years event, which runs until October 22, has the theme: "Italian at the Cinema, Italian in the Cinema".
  • Earlier this month, Hofstra University hosted its 25th annual Italian festival. The day was a chance for the Long Island community to experience a bit of traditional Italian culture, from dancing to food, and to enjoy the beautiful weather that day on the University’s campus.
  • Raphael Gualazzi during his Eurovision Song Contest show
    Raphael Gualazzi is so Italian and–at the same time–so extraordinarily global for his music. Born in 1981, Raphael is a singer-songwriter who exported Italian vibes across the world. I’m proud to introduce Raphael Gualazzi as our second guest on “Francesco Foderà’s Italian Sound.”
  • Arturo Toscanini is one of the most prominent musicians from the late 19th and early 20th century. Now, 150 years after his birth, Italian industrial group, Salini Impregilo, and its U.S. subsidiary, Lane, are organizing a series of events in both Italy and America to honor the late musician.
  • A double tribute to the legendary maestro Arturo Toscanini is about to arrive. The first component of this double tribute is a book, written by Marco Capra with foreword by Maestro Riccardo Muti, devoted to Toscanini's life. The second component is a magical evening at the Rizzoli Bookstore, which will be hosting an exclusive New York performance by members of the La Scala Symphony on the evening of Wednesday, March 29th starting at 6:00 PM. This event is generously sponsored by Lane, the U.S. subsidiary of Italian construction giant Salini Impregilo.
