Hi Pironi,
yes we thought of organizing some place for sunday night. Have to find out a suitable bar or osteria.
We thought also of campo san paolo (the old church or brewery which got a Pizzeria ) or somewhere in campo santa margherita or Canareggio. Do you have any idea??? Where in Italy do you live??? I live in Verona.
Ciao a presto

Campo San Polo sounds good. We could stay at the pizzeria, or Ostaria alla Patatina. We could also consider Restaurant alla Madonna http://www.ristoranteallamadonna.com/eng/locale.htm (but it's more expensive than the others)

meet-up venice sunday evening (2nd august)

Post by andrea » Sat Jun 27, 2009 1:09 am

Grazie Pietro,
ok I will go and have a look (with a cohenite woman from Venice) and than let you and the other cohenites from the forum know. Yes, San Polo I think is very good.


Now a question to everyone from this forum going to the Venice concert :
Who would like to join the sunday evening meet-up ???

We already know of about 10 -15 cohenites (the ones we talked to on Hydra) , but it would be important to have a number for the booking of the place.
Just let us know in this thread by mid july, in order to have an idea how many will join, thanks .
ciao

Hi, Thanks to you and Francesca for finding somewhere for us to all meet up, my husband and myself won't arrive in Venice airport until 21.15 on the Sunday evening, but hopefully we'll be able to meet up with everyone later on, i.e not for dinner! We are coming from England by the way, see you all there!

Andrea,
Me and my wife will be joining you all in Venice! I will probably book flights from August 1st to August 4th, but I'm still looking for cheap flights and sleeping accomodation.
You can add us to the list of participants, both for the diner on Sunday (Aug 2nd) as the meetups (Aug 3th):
Maarten Massa and Wenche Bats, Belgium

Thanks for organizing everything!
Maarten

As you know I'm coming to Venice so I was wondering if the mysterious 'K - UK' on your list is me.

I shall be arriving on the Saturday (with the book of Brunetti's walks under my arm) and leaving late evening on the Tuesday so please put me down for the Sunday evening meal and the pre-concert meet up.

I only arrived home from Greece last night but I've already played your wonderful Rosa De Papel Lorca disc twice.

It's absolutely stunning many many thanks.

Siete un buon amico.

Hi Andrea - Rosa De Papel Lorca ist wirklich klasse - wunderschön. Vielen Dank dafür.

Mein Gott - jetzt ist dieser Liverpool Typ wieder zuhause an seinem Computer und bastelt wieder merkwürdige Bildchen.
Mit was man sich alles abgeben muss - unglaublich.

Viel Spaß in Venedig.

Why are you suddenly comunicating in Klingon...I didn't have you down as a Trekkie.

From what little Klingon I know I gather that you too have been smitten by Marisa Sannia's Rosa de papel album.

I have observed that cold Teutonic Knight's heart of yours melt on a number of occasions over the years so it pleases me to know that both our hearts have been affected by this beautiful cd. At last we have something else in common beside Leonard. A time to celebrate.

For anybody else interested in the words of Lorca and heart breakingly beautiful music......

Marisa Sannia wrote: “We don't have to read poetry with our eyes , we have to read it with the voice. The eyes help us to decipher it, the ears help us to discover the rhythm of it, but it's with the voice that we can recreate it”. The Sardinian singer probed the deep sea of Federico Garcia Lorca's poetry, choosing and collecting words and compositions of the great Andalusian poet. The lyrics of each song (except for "pequeño vals vienes" by Leonard Cohen and “La cancion de la mariposa” by Amancio Prada) were all set into music by the artist and performed in acoustic settings for piano and guitar

Thanks again Andrea

Hi Ken and Henning, I am glad you both like the Marisa Sannia CD , finally something in common.
Last information regarding that cd and it is very sad, Marisa Sannia has died last year (2008) in April, the cd came out in autuumn 2008 , it was her last work), just because I don't know if you both know this :cry:
Thank you Ken for your comment and describtion.

But guys remember this is the Venice meetup thread , will be richer soon with informations about our meetup.
If you want to continue to discuss about this cd, look for another thread where it suits better.
Do you agree?
Bye
Andrea

***add me to the list of lovers of the album - what a shock to hear that she died last year. / Jarkko***

ok Jarkko, I did add you to the list , yes it is indeed sad , here a link with more information about her live.
