The Espresso Manifesto Arts Collective is an initiative founded by Canadian-Italian musician Daniela Nardi and Italian born Canadian journalist/broadcaster/writer Daniela Sanzone. EMAC is both a social movement and a celebration of the arts. Its goal is to nurture dialogue between communities and generations.
ORA (meaning NOW in Italian) will be the Collective’s first event held on Tuesday June 25th at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto.
The evening will begin with a classic Italian aperitivo – light food and drinks – followed by a Speakers Circle in a lively discussion of Canadian-Italian Culture and what we are doing as a community to help it evolve and bridge any gaps with the mainstream as well as, the next generation. The speakers include a cross section of artists, broadcasters, professors, developers, and writers including Antonio Nicaso (writer), Daniela Nardi (musician), Donato Santeramo (professor), Paul Golini (developer) and Luciano Volpe (entrepreneur). The debate will be moderated by Daniela Sanzone.
The evening will end on a wonderful musical note, with performances by Daniela Nardi’s Espresso Manifesto with as a special guest, the utterly unique and effervescent Peppe Voltarelli from Italy.
The evening promises to be filled with great music, great food and great food for thought about Culture in Toronto and the place of l’Italianita’ in it.
The event is part of the National Congress of Italian-Canadians Italian Heritage Month festivities. Sponsors include, Remax2000Toronto Realty, National Congress of Italian Canadians, Pizza Nova and Telelatino.
