Via Luciano Berio in Florence

in
Event

The Centro Studi Luciano Berio is pleased to announce that on October 24, 2019, on the occasion of the 94th anniversary of the composer's birth, a street in Florence will be named in his honor. Via Luciano Berio joins other streets and public spaces dedicated to Berio in the years following his death in 2003: in Rome, Genoa, Milan, Radicondoli (SI), Imperia and Jávea (Alicante). Emblematic close to the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Via Luciano Berio is part of Via del Fosso Macinante and located at the intersection of Viale Fratelli Rosselli and Piazza Vittorio Veneto. The inauguration ceremony will take place at 10:30 am with the representatives of the Municipality of Florence, the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, the Berio family and the Centro Studi Luciano Berio.
During the ceremony, Andrea dell’Ira and Claudio Quintavalla – first trumpets of the Orchestra del Maggio – will perform two works by Berio: Fanfaretta per Tartuca for two trumpets and Gute Nacht for solo trumpet.
The dedication was decided by the council of Palazzo Vecchio to underline the close bond betwen the composer and the city of Florence: Berio was, in fact, the artistic director of the Orchestra della Toscana (1982-84), artistic director of the 47th edition of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino (1984) as well as the founder and artistic director of Tempo Reale, centre for musical research, production and didactics (1987-2000).
