Italy’s Multicultural Music

Back in July 2007, I used this space to provide some impressions of rapidly changing Italy, as a person who was born and partly raised there and who has spent some long periods of time in the country.

Today, one of my musings has been answered by this article in the New York Times.

“The world around us changed,” Mr. Tronco told me backstage, before the concert. “Immigrants started arriving. For Italians it’s still strange for the baker to be Chinese and the butcher Bengalese.”

And out of what could be a new melting pot, could emerge some amazing music. And film. and art. And design. And TV.
