LocandinaSaligia

Art Exhibition by Andrea Chisesi

“Saligia” is the Italian acronym of the 7 deadly sins (also known as the capital vices or cardinal sins). This is a grouping and classification of vices of Christian origin.
In Italian:  Superbia, Accidia, Lussuria, Ira, Gola, Invidia, Avarizia.
In English: pride, sloth, lust, wrath, gluttony, envy and greed

The artist wonders if the seven sins are really vices or opportunities of happines.

Il Volo

Notte Magica

Taormina Greek Theatre, 1, 3 and 4 June 2017

l Volo is a group of three (unconventional) teenage boys that came to fame in Italy after appearing on the Italian talent show Ti Lascio Una Canzone.
They were promptly snapped up by the leading people in the music industry in Italy and their debut album quickly went platinum. Like Andrea Bocelli before them, they are Italians set for the international stage. Their appearance on American Idol in 2011 caused a frenzy of first week sales for the lads with further plans to launch themselves elsewhere in the world. Their appeal is definitely their quirky image coupled with their unexpectedly mature vocals. They cover old ground in the classical crossover sphere, but they certainly package it in a new and exciting way. With undeniably strong voices and impeccable charm, Il Volo are hard to resist.
(source: classical-crossover.co.uk)

The three  singers are tenors Piero Barone (born 1993) and Ignazio Boschetto (born 1994), and baritone Gianluca Ginoble (born 1995).
