“De Gregori, Alice, Bollani, and then again Morgan, Sgarbi, Guerri, Veneziani and Bennato. These are just some of the big names and leading names in the third edition of the ‘Dannunziano Festival’, a seed that we launched in 2019 with the ‘Revolution Day’ with the aim of returning D’Annunzio to his city, of removing the dust from the character allowing the Abruzzese and Italians to rediscover the figure. Today we are reaping the fruits of that seed, proposing a renewed edition of an event that has become a real festival dedicated, in the 2021 edition, to the theme of ‘The rising city: Rhythm, Speed, Movement’ and which will unfold from 3 to 12 September next and which, among other things, will focus on the recovery of D’Annunzio’s places devastated by the fires of early August, such as our pine forest: the main events and shows will include a liberal donation from the public who will book their presence, starting from 5 or 10 euros, and the collected sum will be donated to all the D’Annunzio municipalities that have been affected by the fires, a way to make every single citizen feel an active part of the great rehabilitation work that the municipal administration will have to realize “. This was announced by the President of the Council of the Abruzzo Region Lorenzo Sospiri during the press conference convened to formalize the program of the events of the Dannunziano 2021 Festival, in the presence of the mayor of Pescara Carlo Masci. “Obviously what will start on September 3rd will be the second edition of the Festival, however conditioned by the pandemic emergency – underlined President Sospiri -. Last year was that of social distancing, of quota places, the one that will open in a few days will be the edition of the Green Pass, which we will face as always, for an event that is financed thanks to the presence of important names and sponsors. From 3 to 12 September we will have a roundup of main events, but above all moments of great culture with the presentation of books and volumes, some not yet printed, but which are already animating the debate around the name of d’Annunzio and his businesses. “.” Among the highlights of the festival we will have the Regatta dedicated to d’Annunzio on 4 September which will include a double event, that is, on the one hand, the recovery of the relationship with the sea which, among other things, falls in the year in which Pescara has won the Blue Flag, on the other hand the desire to institutionalize the initiative making it one of the most important events for the Adriatic. On 6 September there will be the play Clitemnestra written by Luciano Violante who, starting from the focus of the classic myth, talks about the relationship with justice, and with him there will be the Tsa and Buttafuoco. On 7 September we will turn the spotlight on ‘Nuvolari’: the entire 2021 edition of the Festival is dedicated to the theme of Movement, Speed and Rhythm, so it is certainly interesting to investigate d’Annunzio’s relationship with the Acerbo Cup. Another cultural container of international importance will be the recovery of the ante-Rijeka d’Annunzio, therefore the D’Annunzio cenacle with the presence of Vittorio Sgarbi who on 9 September will present 10 paintings by Michetti never seen before. On the last day, September 12, we will present with Giordano Bruno Guerri the book on the 100th anniversary of the Vittoriale, one of the most important monumental buildings after the Quirinale. For the occasion we will connect with the President of the Lombardy Region Fontana, who will discuss with the Mayor of Pescara Masci and with the President of the Abruzzo Region Marsilio to create an exchange of flows of people and experiences and enhance D’Annunzio’s places, reaffirming the ‘friendship between our places “.” And then on the occasion – added President Sospiri – d’Annunzio will be tried with accusation and defense, in the presence of the Director of TG2 Sangiuliano, Marcello Veneziani, Jacopo Fo, witnesses, jurors and a judge. The main events are always linked to the theme of speed with Francesco De Gregori, with the artists of the Conservatory who will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Astor Piazolla, and then there will be Morgan, Bollani, Alice who will sing Battiato, a moment of great emotion at the equal to the one experienced last year with the tribute to Morricone, Karima and Bennato “.” Historically – added President Sospiri – the events of the Festival have always been popular, participatory and free, this year they will certainly remain popular and participated, but they will not be free because when booking the main events we will ask for a liberal donation starting from 5 or 10 euros in order to give concrete and useful support to help the municipal administration of Pescara and other D’Annunzio places to recover later the fires that have devastated our symbolic places. The sums collected will flow into a current account of the Abruzzo Region which will then donate them to Pescara, Ortona and the other interested cities, remembering that d’Annunzio is our very identity ”. The mayor Masci received thanks for this choice “made by the Abruzzo Region which is in line with the participation of citizens in the aftermath of the fire that devastated our pine forest. And an important signal is the community that takes part in the reconstruction of an identity part of the city, as was d’Annunzio who lived in that part of the territory.
