L’Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, ovvero: la World Music alla romana
Abstract: Piazza Vittorio orchestra: the roman way to world music
The article is focused on the representation of migrants and migrations proposed by the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, born in Rome in 2002 and composed by 18 musicians from all over the world. Through music, it is argued, the Orchestra contributes in building the identity of Piazza Vittorio and the Esquilino neighbourhood as a place of integration and multiculturalism; it also offers an original and unconventional view on the city of Rome.
Keywords: music, migration, Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio.
