Ravenna Festival – Il Trebbo in musica 2.0

22 June @ 9:30 am - 16 July @ 11:30 pm

Ravenna Alto Sale

Ravenna Festival returns to Cervia – Milano Marittima, nine meetings with writers, journalists, experts and musicians.

Nine appointments for an ad hoc event, feet firmly planted in an excellent past but a gaze focused on the present … and the future.

Ravenna Festival returns to Cervia with Per alto sale – Trebbo in musica 2.0, an itinerary of encounters inspired by the Trebbo tradition of Romagna, celebrating its dimension of sharing and comparison and at the same time ferrying it into the 21st century in alternating gifts to “heroes” of Romagna – Tonino Guerra, Pellegrino Artusi, Federico Fellini – to contemporary voices and current issues.

The Ravenna Festival events see the participation of writers such as Massimo Gramellini, Melania Mazzucco, Paolo Rumiz, Roberto Cotroneo, but also Gad Lerner, Ivano Marescotti, the president of Casa Artusi Laila Tentoni, the virologist Ilaria Capua and the architect Stefano Boeri.

A path that also becomes musical – with strong jazz hues – with Paolo Fresu, Rita Marcotulli, Gianluca Petrella, Pasquale Mirra, Paolo Damiani, Daniele Di Bonaventura, Virginia Guastella, Fabio Mina, the Italian Jazz Orchestra with Simone Zanchini, the Bevano Est and Domenico Bevilacqua.

Storytelling, the narrative that crosses the boundaries of literature to appropriate also the languages ​​of journalism, television, scientific and historical dissemination is the common thread of four Thursday events, intended to discuss the major issues, and above all the great challenges, of our era, moving from health and bioethics to architecture, nature and eco-sustainability.


Which city could become the capital of this Ravenna Festival – Trebbo 2.0, if not Cervia?

“This initiative is placed at a very high level and is part of the furrow of the enhancement of the traditions linked to the culture of Cervia, which has always given ample space to its roots, and of the many important figures of literature that have passed from here, like Grazia Deledda , Giuseppe Ungaretti and Mario Luzi. And at the same time in the recovery of the ancient poetic Trebbi which took place here from 1956 to 1960 ”
The Mayor of Cervia, Massimo Medri

A review inspired by Trebbo

Ivano Marescotti is entrusted with the task of returning a portrait through reading and commenting on texts, including dialectal ones, with the musical counterpoint of Paolo Damiani on the double bass and live electronics.
