Invitation to attend the Italian Cultural Institute's Holocaust Remembrance Day function

Screening of the documentary “The Maestro, In Search of the Last Music” directed by Argentine director Alexandre Valenti (with English subtitles). Presented by Dr Alessandro Carrieri, Research Fellow ACJC, Monash University, Faculty of Arts; ACIS Honorary Research Associate and Dr Mirna Cicioni (Honorary Research Associate, Monash University).

At Barletta, a small town in southern Italy, a quiet but determined hero has brought to life an entire history of forgotten music. For over 20 years, in a race against time and oblivion, Francesco Lotoro, an Italian pianist and musicologist, has dedicated himself to finding and bringing back to life a rich musical legacy that has been forgotten and nearly lost: the music clandestinely composed in WWII concentration camps. Professional composers and amateur musicians alike, writing on now-faded and torn scraps of paper, left behind musical gems in all styles and genres, from symphonies, operas and liturgical works to tangos, folk songs, and gypsy music.
