As in a still from a Rossellini film -- it is from today's ruins that Italia Anno Zero is born.
Italia anno zero is a collaboration between Olga Neuwirth (composer/performer) and Roberto Paci Dalò (composer/performer/director).

The composers/performers do an investigation into texts by such Italian authors as Gramsci, Leopardi and Pasolini organized in a musical way and presented in a staged concert with a five member band made out of clarinets, guitar, electronics, sampler, and theremin vox. Kind of noise group where collaborative strategies build up the dense structure out of the original words. Play it loud!
