The popular singer, the voice of the people. The contrast between the personal dimension of the poetic message and tribute to the collective memory inscribed in the texts of his songs: the funeral mass, the royal square and the media. The mourning of a town that is the sense of loss, the emotion of all of Italy. The canonization of the other. Celebration of a solemn funeral mass in Piazza Grande, the marginal world praised by Lucio becomes the site of a mass media event, the celebration of a death, is the time of the creation of a collective memory, a "Mass Storage". The English word helps us to play with the ambiguity of these concepts: the religious celebration of the Mass funeral is a tribute to the artist, but mainly serves as a shared social need: fix ritually collective memory of the country.
An enormous birthday party was held in Piazza Maggiore this past Monday, March 4th: it was a tribute concert for the late singer-songwriter Lucio Dalla on his 70th birthday about one year after his death. Lucio was born and raised in Bologna, and was loved across Italy and well known throughout the world. He was the first famous Bolognese we heard about upon moving here. The piazza was filled to capacity when we arrived; the energy and love in the air was palpable. People of all ages, from young to old, overflowed into every street surrounding the piazza. Others hung back and spread out, simply enjoying being in the company of friends. There are many more videos on YouTube too.
Piazza Grande, literally the Big Square, is a square in Bologna. There's no square named like that in Bologna anyway. Molto Grazie Alberto!!! For the wonderful translation and also for the info! Of course if you see mistakes or you can suggest something more elegant don't hesitate, I'll gladly correct.
