Guerra e Pace (War and Peace)

This Italian community event took place at St Peter’s Italian Church, Clerkenwell, Londo, in November 2016, exploring Italian poetry on the theme of ‘War & Peace’(Guerra e Pace) from Italian Unification through to the 1st and 2nd World Wars and then the 50s to the 80s.

Programme (plus a review by Andrea del Cornò of the London Library).

The company for ‘Guerra e Pace’ included a leading Italian accordionist from the Anglo Italian community, as well as lead character Danilo in 1989 film ‘Queen of Hearts’, about the Italian quarter.

Our thanks to the Mazzini-Garibaldi Foundation for sponsoring our event and to The British-Italian Society for their support. Thank you also to Andrea Del Cornò of The London Library for his research.
