Hotel Parco in Castelfidardo wird ein Akkordeon/Thema Hotel - Italien

Hotel Parco
Am Samstag, dem 13. April, fand im Hotel Parco in Castelfidardo eine wunderbare neue Veranstaltung statt, bei der die Mehrheit der Akkordeonisten und Fans, die nach Castelfidardo kamen, in den vergangenen Jahren mindestens einmal übernachtet hat.

Die Hoteldirektoren Milly Cianforlini und Laura Davezza beschlossen, ihr Hotel dem Akkordeon zu widmen, und luden Akkordeonproduzenten / -hersteller zu einem "Welcome" -Nachmittag ein. Die Musik wurde vom Akkordeonorchester (aus der Markenregion Tonino) und kleinen Kindern der Paolo Soprani Music School geliefert.

"Don Bruno", der Priester von Castelfidardo, war anwesend, um die Veranstaltung und diese neue Idee zu segnen. Anwesend waren auch Roberto Ascan (Bürgermeister), Ruben Cittadini (Kulturrat von Castelfidardo) und Moreno Pieroni (Kulturrat von Marche) sowie Vertreter der beteiligten Akkordeonfabriken Alessandrini, Baffetti, Beltuna, Binci, Bugari, Excelsior, Fisitalia, Fismen. Galassi, Giustozzi, Italcinte, Moreschi, MusicTech, Ottavianelli, Paolo Soprani, Pasco Italia, Pigini, Scandalli und Zero Sette.

Eine sehr interessante Rede über die Akkordeongeschichte von Castelfidardo wurde vom Historiker Beniamino Bugiolacchi gehalten, dem es wie immer gelungen ist, das Publikum mit Interesse zu begeistern. Beniamino erzählt immer wieder neue und alte Geschichten über Akkordeon-Persönlichkeiten, die die Stadt besucht haben.

Der Hauptsponsor dieser Veranstaltung war der Akkordeonproduzent Fisitalia.

Der wundervolle Nachmittag wurde mit einem reichhaltigen Buffet und einem köstlichen Akkordeonkuchen abgerundet.

PIF 2019 – Draw Your Accordion - Italy

PIF logo
The theme of the 2019 PIF Festival is “Once upon a time… the accordion”. This year, as well as encouraging composers to compose a work for Accordion & Orchestra, the event will include a new category: PIF2019 Draw your Accordion.

The idea of PIF 2019 is to intrigue and attract new generations to the accordion and the whole family of reed instruments. The past generation lived the instrument as something "extremely" popular, a feeling comparatively unknown to the young people of today who do not know it at all. The idea of making a contest of "drawing" seemed perfect because it is aimed at the very young, or the generation of the future. The design must be made on the theme of the festival including at least one image of the accordion to invite the candidates to observe it, meet it and then keep it in memory.

The competition aimed at young people up to 12 years (born in 2007 or later) of any country. There are no entry fees and the closing date for entries is 31st July, 2019.

A panel of experts will analyse the entries and will select 25 to 50 drawings. At a later stage an online voting system will be prepared for the proclamation of the winning picture.

The young winner will be awarded an “Accordion of Castelfidardo” prize and will be invited to present it during the "International Prize of the accordion" which will take place from 18th to 22nd September 2019 in Castelfidardo.
