  • The Point of participating in one of the many upcoming events scheduled in New York City. Remembrance Day is not for the victims; they can’t forget.

    New York City. On January 27, Giornata della memoria, we gathered outside the Consulate General of Italy on Park Avenue to read the names of the thousands of Italian Jewish victims of the Holocaust. This year the traditional ceremony is enrich with a new feature: the invitation to the public is not just the one to read, but to play music as a counterpoint to the ongoing reading. Among the performing artists, guitarist and arranger Brandon Ross, composer and conductor Lawrence "Butch" Morris, multi-instrumentalist Avram Fefer, guitarist Marco Cappelli, bass player Bernd Klug, and musician Mauro Pagani who will play the violin.
  • The Consulate General of Italy has once again joined forces with Primo Levi Center, the Italian Cultural Institute, Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò at NYU, John D. Calandra Institute at CUNY, Italian Academy at Columbia University, Scuola d’Italia “Guglielmo Marconi”, i-Italy.org and Rai Corporation, and will enrich the traditional ceremony with a new and suggestive feature: the invitation to the public is not just the one to read, but to play music as a counterpoint to the ongoing reading.
