Composer, performer, and musicologist Luciano Chessa performs declamations of selected words-in-freedom poems by F. T. Marinetti and Francesco Cangiullo in the Peter B. Lewis Theater. His performance will include compositions by Carlo Carrà, Fortunato Depero, Paolo Buzzi, and Aldo Palazzeschi, among others, and a special presentation of Cangiullo's Piedigrotta accompanied by Neapolitan folk instruments.
