   Dream, the idea of future in Italian car design

                                                        Torino - September 19 - November 11, 2008

The history of cars in Torino has developed along two lines that in many cases have intersected, creating sparks and beneficial interactions that have brought the city and Piemonte unrivalled fame on the world stage. While our region has been producing cars for a century, it has also fuelled hotbeds of creativity, craftsmanship and technology expressed in one-off vehicles and prototypes, first as a customized response to private customers and then as an instrument to certify the competency of studios and draw contracts from national and international manufacturers. The analysis of "Dream" starts from the 1950s, that particular period for the Italian car industry which, recovering from the wounds of war, followed Ford's objective of cars for all, but remained strongly attracted by the appeal of unique models, the Dream Car as an explicit sign of optimism, a vision of a bright future, a sometimes naive concession to provocation and escapism.

  The "Cantus Angeli" festival

 Amalfi Coast - 22 - 26 October 2009

The festival “Cantus Angeli” is an international encounter of choirs where they exhibit their choral and musical art in the magnificent land of the Magna Greece. Every group will enjoy the beauty of Amalfi, Ravello, Paestum, the riches of Salerno, Cilento and the valley of Diano.

Every choir may exhibit freely their popular, ethnic, sacred and polyphonic music in an atmosphere of intense unity in music. This musical manifestation however is not intended as a competition but as a meeting of choirs with different type of music and from different territorial origin.

These festive moments will create possibilities for the musicians and all the participants to tighten friendly relationships based on a common passion for music and the joy to visit this beautiful region.
