I am delighted to hear that the evenings in Via Capodimondo Florence,
where Pietro Grossi has created in 1963 the the Studio di Fonologia S2FM.
In 1965 Grossi decided to donate his instruments to the Music Academy "Luigi
Cherubini" and to pursue there his activity, creating the first
class of Electronic Music in Italy.
Are pleasant memories for you: It was Pietro’s idea and I agreed
enthusiastically. His task was to do the program, create, and send out
the invitations, very original without a doubt. My much more banal task
was to feed the guests on more than art. Of the artistic friends who
generously participated, I’ll never forget Enore Zaffiri who came
from Turin one evening to share his work.
You have participated in 1997 and in 1999 for the presentation of netOper@.
Aside from their pleasant, convivial nature, those meetings were micro-models
of what public organizations could do: to provide information on what
is happening in the arts, to stir up debate etc. Unfortunately, the financing
(little) for culture is often destined for projects managed by ‘lip
service’. As a good Florentine who adores her city this irritates
me and seems to be a betrayal of the lessons of the Renaissance and,
thus, its history.
