Wednesday 7 October 6 pm presentation of Abolire la guerra. Ideas and proposals on war, peace, federalism and European unity , by Ernesto Rossi (1897-1967), edited by Antonella Braga (Nardini Editore). «Working for peace means, in the field of letters, fighting chauvinism, arrogance and nationalist exclusivism, propagating the spiritual values of humanism as foundations of our civilization; in the more strictly political field it means especially imposing control over military budgets and foreign policy [...], and federating the states thus directed into ever stronger and wider unions "[From Ernesto Rossi's letter to his wife, Rome Criminal House, April 10, 1939]. According to this definition, peacemakers are all those who engage on a cultural, ethical and political level to promote the non-violent resolution of conflicts.

Thursday 8 October 9.30 pm Malibra trio . Brahima Dembelè: voice, djembe, balafon, kora, tama; Manuela Iori: piano, keyboards, choirs; Ettore Bonafè: djembe, dundun, drums A musical project born in 2010 and led by Brahima Dembelè, Griot from Burkina Faso; his music and lyrics, all in the Djoula language, widespread in West Africa. The musical idea draws directly on African rhythmic and melodic baggage; in fact we can find the echo of the choirs of the small villages, the rhythms of traditional dances, the bright and melancholy colors at the same time of wonderful and distant landscapes. This Afro background, however, meets and blends with different types of Western music, which also owe their roots to Africa: reggae and jazz. Traditional African instruments such as djembe, balafon and kora also mix with keyboards, piano and drums. An author's journey that starts from Africa and reaches us.
