Hello everyone,
we definitely will host as many cohenites as possible at the LuccaLibri event (9 July 2013).

Although the presentation will be mainly in Italian, I do happen to speak English and if many friends from abroad should show up I shall only be too glad to switch from one language to the other.

the way we plan to do it is as follows. First, I shall be helped by a local musicologist, Professor Renzo Cresti. We will be talking about the Italian edition of Sylvie Simmons' biography: "I'm Your Man - Vita di Leonard Cohen", with questions and contributions from the public only too welcome. We shall be also reading a few Cohen poems (in both languages I would imagine) and play some landmark songs, both studio and live, to illustrate Leonard's path as an artist. The event will start at 5 pm, a few hours before Leonard's show, just to make sure you get in the right mood! :)

All information about the event will be posted both on our new LC Italian website (http://www.leonardcohen.it, contributors welcome!) and our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/Leonardcohen.it.

If you wish to contact us for suggestions or information, you can do it through the LC Italian site (info@... also OK).

Another presentation should be staged in Marsala, in Sicily, on July 26 - again with a local musician or musicologist. Will keep you posted.

Bye for now,

Yuri Garrett
(who spent most of this year working on "I'm Your Man" and can't stop) :)

No chance to have the book signed by HIM?

Minime, minime. Vicine allo zero. Ma sperare non costa troppo se si è già pronti alla delusione. Noi magari qualche emissario in missione lo mandiamo... :)

I am travelling alone from the UK to Rome and Lucca - really looking forward to seeing Leonard again after a glorious show in London ! The LuccaLibri event sounds fascinating - who wants to meet up for a drink and / or food either before or after ? Would be great to meet with some local Cohenites Any suggestion for a place to meet would be really appreciated ! Cheers Steve

I don't know if WE will make it to the LuccaLibri Event, but what about a litte Glass of Prosecco in the Bar of the Universo Hotel, just before the Concert?
I will spend the two days prior to the concert Sightseeing in Florence, so maybe I will just have a rest there ;-)

Tomorrow afternoon we will be picnicing on the walls of Lucca. (For those not familiar atop the wall is a giant park). Will clarify exact arrangements and re-post. Anyone is welcome. Come and meet us.

Indeed so. Unlike so many other occasions, however, we will try to start at 6 pm sharp. Apparently the event will be packed so there should be no point in waiting for latecomers! :)

And shortly thereafter, we shall all together enjoy Leonard's gig.

Until tomorrow, friends!

Yuri

=================

Confermo che la presentazione è stata spostata alle 18:00. Molto probabilmente, poiché sembra che ci siano molte prenotazioni, cominceremo in orario. Chi pensava di arrivare con il classico quarto d'ora accademico è avvisato!

A domani, Luccalibri (Via Garibaldi 54), ore 18.

E poi, buon concerto a tutti!

Yuri

You must be near me, rpan, our room also overlooks the venue, i got some great shots of Diana Krall on Saturday night. The band tonight were extremely loud, but great fun, I really enjoyed them.
So very excited to see Leonard tomorrow, really looking forward to the sound check.

rpan - if Leonard has to stop at 11:50 pm it will be a very short show indeed! Even Rome went on till 12:15 am and that was the shortest show of the year - so far.

Do you know if Leonard is still due on stage at 9 pm, or will it be earlier? We're trying to decide what time to walk over there as we're staying very close by. Really looking forward to tomight's concert, it's such lovely weather here!!
