From the 27th to the 29th of May, 2022, Radicondoli (Province of Siena, Italy) hosted a weekend dedicated to Luciano Berio and his profound bond with the Tuscan village he chose in the 1970s as his favourite place of the heart, in which to work and spend time with his family and closest friends.
The event, entitled “Suoni e occasioni: Radicondoli ricorda Luciano Berio" (Sounds and occasions: Radicondoli remembers Luciano Berio), is organised by Radicondoli Arte in collaboration with the Centro Studi Luciano Berio and the Radiconvento Music School (Dulcimer Fondation pour la musique). The program aims to celebrate the Maestro (as he is still called by the residents of the village), through the sharing of memories and testimonies of the people who knew him and were part of his life.
The weekend consisted of audiovisual projections, an exhibition of archival material, meetings with the public, musical performances and a concert by the mdi ensemble with works by Berio and readings of his texts. The throughline of all these events was the concept of "occasion," as defined with multiple meanings and retraced through the artistic and personal biography of Luciano Berio.

To underline the relationship between Berio and Radicondoli, we have collected extracts from texts and interviews where the composer talks about this special affection on this page.

Some photos of the meeting with the public, held on 28 May at the Teatro dei Risorti in Radicondoli, are collected here.
