The Orchestra Of Piazza Vittorio

by Andrew Price

September 21, 2007


A new Italian documentary called The Orchestra of Piazza Vittorio is being screened in a few select cities in October.

It follows a group of immigrants to Italy as they try to save their neighborhood theater by creating a new resident orchestra–drawn from the many cultures represented in the neighborhood.

The bizarre musical chimera that results has a tabla, an oud, a french horn...you get the idea.

European cities don't generally trumpet (sorry) their melting-pot status. It's cool to see something like this from Italy.

Dates and locations are here and their tunes are here.
