Istituto Italiano di Cultura is proud to present Rovine Circolari in
“Via del dollari” – A Celebration of the Italian Accordion.
Via del dollari – Dollar Street, is the name of the avenue that runs through the center of Castelfidardo, a small town in the Marche region known throughout the world for the accordions it manufactures.
Via dei dollari is also the name of a musical and theatrical celebration of this magical instrument presented by Rovine Circolari, an Ancona-based troupe directed by actress and singer Isabella Carloni.
Through stories, poems and songs, Carloni and accordionist Christian Riganelli will conjure a generation of Italian immigrants who left their homeland with little more than their dreams and their accordions in search of a better life in America.

The performance will begin at 1:30 in the Mentesana-Weber Room (Chandelier Room) . Coffee and light refreshments will be served at 1:00 p.m..

Seating is limited and reservations are strongly recommended. To reserve your seat, call 708-345-5933 or visit www.casaitaliachicago.org
