BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, JANUARY 28, 2011 Page 15 Day of Italian Cuisines (Continued from Page 5) Francesco Carli in Rio De Janeiro, Giulio Vierci in Sapporo, Donato De Santis in Buenos Aires. As an impoi-tant part of this year's IDIC celebration there was the qualification round of the World Pesto Genovese Championship made with a mortar. The International Day of Italian Cuisines was born from a mission: "We cer- tainly aim at educating worldwide consumers, but more than anything else, we want to protect their right to get what they pay for when going to eateries labeled as "Italian", that is: authentic and quality Italian cuisine" says Rosario Scarpato, GVCI Honorary President, and IDIC 2011 Director. This year brings an impor~ tant novelty: the IDIC was not only celebrated abroad but also in Italy, where it was interpreted as the "Day of national culinary pride". "In 2011 Italy celebrates its 150 anniversary as a unified nation. We believe that reci- pes such as the Pesto alla Genovese, the Risotto alla Milanese and the Tagliatelle alia Bolognese have deeply contributed to the process of unification, at least in the kitchen", said Rosario Scarpato. "After all, Garibaldi's expe- dition departed from the ports of Liguria. Perhaps he ate some pasta with pesto before leaving". Why Janu- ary 17th? January 17 is a date of great symbolic impor- tance. It's the day of the catholic feast of Sant'Antonio Abate, one of the most popular saints of Italy, the patron of domestic animals, but also of butch- ers and salami makers. On this day, according to tradition, the Italian Carni- val begins, the period of the year during which, since unmemorable time, it's "licet insanire," transgres- sions are tolerated and good, rich food is celebrated and, along with this: cooking. Taken from L'Italo Americano Boston Philharmonic (Continued from Page 5) last years he wrote a hand- ful of captivating master- pieces that are among the musical treasures of the Central Europe in the twen- tieth century, and the Sec- ond Violin Concerto is one of the jewels from this late pe- riod. Its lush, intoxicating, yet astringent sounds will make an immediate impact on all who have yet to come under its spell. The Enigma Variations has always been the best-known and most beloved work of Sir Edward William Elgar. At times it is wistful, at times riotous, and always Elgar is engaged with the deepest, most genuine of feelings. The richness and variety of its orchestration makes this piece a particular delight for the players too, and the work's unabashed English- ness, together with that of the Vaughan Williams Tallis Fantasy, gives Mr. Zander the opportunity --,one that he rarely takes -- to indulge in a little sentiment for the land of his birth.
