Cortoitalia

Music of wind and rustling of weeds announce cembalos which call the voice. A percussion instrument “tammurra” beats rhythm and the beginning of the song.
This black and white film shows us and make us listen to a performance of Antonio Accurso, his tammurra and his dancers, in an old Mapoletanian popular song. It happens in a place of memory, an old pavillon in ruins in a Roman park. Song and dancers seem to be spirits of the past who, for a few moments, give back live to these abandoned places, tortured by change of culture and oblivion. When song and dance stop, the birds are going on with the music.

Old napoletanian song and dance, are giving life again to abandoned ruins. The voice of Antonio Accurso saves the traditional song from oblivion and ruin.
