Experiencing Interruptions?

Ritorno a Elea

Ritorno a Elea is a piece of music inspired by an imaginary journey into the past between the different shores of the Mediterranean sea in search of that spirit that puts at the center of the vision of the world the profound meaning of Humanity and the Whole, for the first time prefigured by Parmenides and by his followers, so often lost today. The history of Elea, in fact, was not an isolated case and in the following two thousand and five hundred years similar events were repeated often leaving evident signs on the Italian territory. Thus emigration, immigration, hospitality and integration are nothing new, but something ancient and consolidated in our culture.

Ritorno a Elea has also this meaning: the return to the places of abandonment and depopulation to remember what we have been and to understand the urgency to strongly refuse the current political actions implemented by the states to counteract illegal immigration through the construction of walls and iron curtains, the establishment of naval blocks, the closure of ports and the implementation of restrictive and punitive measures.
