News from the Centro Studi Luciano Berio:
“The CSLB announces with great happiness that a street has been named after Luciano Berio in a new Milan development being built in what used to be the Fiera area, called City Life. Via Luciano Berio is in a pedestrian area in the heart of the new neighborhood, and it flows into a piazza named after Elsa Morante. An analogous street which will also flow into Piazza Morante will be dedicated to Italo Calvino. This musical and literary “crossing” was proposed by Filippo del Corno, Culture Minister of the City of Milan, and described to the press: “A writer and a composer who both had a special relationship with the city of Milan are remembered for their innovative view towards the future, and concern for the development of the city”; for the complete article click here.
Via Berio and Piazza Morante will be inaugurated on Saturday, November 8th at 11:30 am, with a program including remarks by city officials and Talia Pecker Berio; the participation of students and teachers from the Conservatory of Milan, who will perform a selection of Duets by Luciano Berio along the new street; and a reading by Carlo Cecchi of few pages by Elsa Morante in the piazza.”
