Having moved Goldoni's classic Italian comedjy to 1963 Brighton, UK, playwright Richard Bean and the National Theater of London has garnered rave reviews for this season opening farce, starring James Corden (The History Boys), in which sex, food and money are high on the agenda.
The show is a non-stop knee-slapping, belly-laughing riot from start to finish. - Edge Boston (John Amodeo)

Viva l'Italia! The Risorgimento on Screen
CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR MORE DETAILS
From its beginnings, the cinema of Italy has been drawn to narratives exploring the establishment of Italian identity, a fascination legible in the many epics of the Roman empire created during the silent era and resurrected as the peplum genre in the 1950s and 1960s. The films chosen for the current program all depict military and political events from the crucial decades in the middle of the eighteenth century when the Italian state took shape.
Different eras have naturally offered distinct visions of these historic events. Risorgimento films fit the purposes of nationalism and nostalgia during the Fascist era, although both Blasetti and De Sica could plausibly claim that their films were meant to be subversive by presenting their nationalist protagonists as underdogs hunted by the authorities. Later filmmakers, like Pietro Germi and the Taviani brothers, offered a revisionist perspective, presenting deliberately non-heroic visions of the Risorgimento years.
Of course the two Italian filmmakers most concerned with history, Luchino Visconti and Roberto Rossellini, both embraced Italy's unification as subject matter with Visconti's first two period pieces masterpieces set during the Risorgimento and Rossellini, even before his film about Garibaldi, presented the defeat of Italian fascism as a kind of modern Risorgimento in Paisan.
This program is a co-presentation of the Harvard Film Archive and the Consulate General of Italy, Boston. Special Thanks: Giuseppe Pastorelli, Consul General of Italy, Boston; Ubaldo Panitti - Cultural Affairs, Consulate General of Italy; Laura Argento - Cineteca Nazionale; Carmen Accaputo - Cineteca di Bologna.

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino
The original brain child of the writer Rina Durante, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino (Best Italian World Music Band - MEI 2010) is the foremost and longest standing traditional music band from Salento, in Puglia, coming together some 36 years ago, in 1975. In 2007 the lead passed from the original founder of the band, Daniele Durante, to his son Mauro (already a highly regarded frame drums player and violinist who has played with numerous artists, such as Ludovico Einaudi, Piers Faccini, Ballake Sissoko, Ibrahim Maalouf, Stewart Copeland and La Notte della Taranta). At the age of 26, Mauro Durante is the musical assistant of Ludovico Einaudi, Maestro Concertatore of La Notte della Taranta, and works with him in the creation and artistic production of that spectacular performance. Canzoniere open the Concertone of La Notte della Taranta in Melpignano, performing live in front of over 100.000 people.
With a range from the energetic pizzica pizzica, to the tenderness of songs of love and longing; from the festa like exuberance of a local band to an ironic glance towards modernity, Canzoniere made the history of Italian world music.
Canzoniere's live concerts are a life explosion: full of energy, passion, rhythm and mystery, they bring the audience from the past into modernity, and back.
With 16 albums and numerous performances in Europe, the Middle East and the USA, Canzoniere have always evoked an enthusiastic response from audiences and sensitively admiring reviews from the music press.

Europe at Mid-Century
Postwar Europe saw many and diverse transformations of the way in which artists depicted the human image. Figuration and abstraction were the contending elements in a dynamic dialogue boldly visible in the work of Alberto Giacometti, Jean Dubuffet, Pablo Picasso, and their many contemporaries. Thirty-five prints, drawings, and paintings by twenty artists from continental Europe and Britain-including works on loan from private collections-illuminate the many innovations and consequent artistic tensions of the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. Other artists, including Joan Miró, Jean Arp, and Henry Moore added their unique perspectives to the ongoing debate. Many of these mid-century artists are currently in the process of being rediscovered, figures such as Jean Fautrier, Karel Appel, and Stanley William Hayter.
