On the occasion of the celebrations for the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, on January 27, 2023, the Museo Novecento is pleased to present a special appointment with the singer-songwriter, author and performer Letizia Fuochi, who will be the protagonist of the performance Neve di carta – il Canto della Memoria, accompanied by guitarist Francesco Frank Cusumano.

Historical anniversaries have a dual function, symbol and perspective, because in addition to celebration, it is necessary to recognize, in the need to remember, the current role of our responsibility, of our responsible action for protection, warning, change.

Through an alternation of stories and songs about Jewish culture, the two authors present music, stories and legends that are illustrated through the emotions of those who have lived in different times and ways the vicissitudes of one of the most ancient and fascinating peoples on earth. A recital to keep alive the voices of all those who have turned into small paper snowflakes in the long winter of humanity.

“Also this year, as we have always done since 2018, the Museo Novecento actively participates in the Day of Remembrance, and does not shirk its role as a tool for frontal reflection with the darker sides of history and human societies”, says Sergio Risaliti, director of the Museo Novecento. “Assuming a relevant position on these occasions is the role that a public museum has to play, using creative language and placing artists at the center of these celebrations. Art faces evil and inhuman violence hand to hand to break the silence and oblivion, always around the corner. Bringing light where there is loss and darkness, where the unspeakable of tragedy makes us deaf and blind. This is the great strength of art. With this special recital, the singer-songwriter Letizia Fuochi accompanied by the guitarist Francesco Frank Cusumano will offer the public a moment of reflection on the past but also of deepening and knowledge of the traditions of contemporary Jewish culture, in the desire to make these celebrations not only an occasion to commemorate but also of critical thinking and sharing”.
