Apr. 20, Talks on Protection and Promotion of the Night Sky in Scansano, Tuscany

Following the event in Tatti (Southern Tuscany), and the presentation of the first verison of the community map of its surroundings, and in the context of a rich program of events through June (pending further updates), you are invited in Scansano, Southern Tuscany for an afternoon with the pibinko.org network.

The event will have a focus on the BuioMetria Partecipativa project and its interdisciplinary approach to promotion and protection of the night sky, but also the other typical elements of the pibinko.org “gigs” will be available.

Impromptu poets from Sardinia and Tuscany at my grandma’s place in Scansano

In a non-casual combination of events, on the afternoon of April 30, 2011, my grandmother, Andreina, hosted in her living room in Scansano (Southern Tuscany) some impromptu poets.

We had the Tenores (throat singers) from Orgosolo, two local poets (Elino Rossi and Fernando Tizzi), some singers from Sinnai (close to Cagliari) and a couple of other poets from Northern Sardinia.
The poets dedicated some rhymes to Andreina, and then took off for a performance they had at the Castagnoli Theatre.

It was a nice meetup, and the morning after I gave a hitch to six of them to catch a train in Grosseto (and then a ferry in Civitavecchia).

Note: on Apr. 30, 2020, I provided a significant elaboration on the Italian version, which turned into a real short story, including links to various songs from Sardinia. Please check the Italian version, pending an English adaptation.
