Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna
On Saturday 13 May at 5 p.m., “Pur bella la vita: musiche nei luoghi storici di Pisa”, the musical review with which the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna’s Students’ and Alumni’s Associations intend to bring musical research to some of the most significant historical places in the city of Pisa, including the Aula Magna Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, in Piazza Martiri della Libertà 33, will resume.
The citation, which invites students to take up the taste for new challenges, is painted in the Cloister of San Girolamo. The appointments revolve around four protagonists who, in different ways, offer the public opportunities to engage with a new way of understanding musical performance; they pay tribute to great artists, and in particular to a Pisan, Francesco Filidei, who found his professional ‘homeland’ abroad; they enhance the historical-artistic sites of Pisa.
Saturday’s is an excellent opportunity to meet and listen to Federico Maria Sardelli, who has been one of the liveliest personalities in Italian culture for years. With ‘Il volto di Vivaldi’ (The Face of Vivaldi), he returns to the charge, devoting himself, however, to a more intriguing investigation, one that concerns the reliability of the real or presumed portraits of the Red Priest. Giulio Santini will accompany the presentation. Musical interventions by Agostino Mattioni, viola and Carlo Pernigotti, harpsichord; music by J.S. Bach and G. F. Hëndel.
