Monica Guerritore and Giovanni Nuti sing Alda Merini in a magical evening. A tribute to the great poet who placed the last at the center of his poetry, with a cameo by Carmen Consoli in the extraordinary setting of the Ancient Theatre of Taormina on August 10th. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to the #OLTRELEFRONTIERE project to protect vulnerable refugees in Libya. On the night of San Lorenzo the concert will take place suspended between sky and sea, in the timeless beauty of a fascinating theater, in a beautiful "terrace" projected on the Mediterranean Sea in which too many people on the run continue to lose their lives trying better living conditions. The concert aims to shine a spotlight on one of the most current and tragic issues of recent times to give support and protection to refugees who are in detention centres in Libya. Music, with the beautiful words of the great poet, will warm hearts and promote the values of solidarity, welcome and peaceful coexistence, which is the spirit for which the CIR has chosen to dedicate to Alda Merini a special concert scheduled for the Foundation Taormina Art Sicily.
