Orchestra Director Damiana Natali will take part in the discovery of Villa Grismondi Finardi on Sunday 19 September 2021, at 5.30 pm.
Music will be the main topic in Damiana Natali’s speech at Villa Grismondi Finardi: a personal dialogue with the public between music and emotions. The Conductor Damiana Natali, with the artist and designer Guja Ajolfi, weaves a dialogue of stories related to the visit and stay of composers in these place.
Villa Grismondi Finardi is a residence rich of history and welcoming for composers and musicians like Amilcare Ponchielli. Students such as Giacomo Puccini, Pietro Mascagni, Marco Enrico Bossi, Giovanni Tebaldini, Ettore Pozzoli and Giulio Buzenac passed through his course of composition at the Milan Conservatory. In the second half of the 19th century, he was the Chapel Master of the S. Maria Maggiore Cathedral in Bergamo. Music is listened to and narrated through the eyes of the artist and conductor, of the composer who takes inspiration from places, history, art and nature, from what surrounds him. In this phase of creation and constitution of the musical score, the Palaces and Historic Houses become an integral part of it, theaters in which the primordial idea is born, places to be respected, living and conserving. Ambassador of beauty and the ethics of music, Damiana Natali is a testimony of creativity and innovative creation like the formulas of Bottega di LungaVita for over 30 years specializing in the production of cosmetics and natural supplements for well-being and health.
