European StoriesEurope and meMemories Across Europe
The power of music helps children to imaginate Europe
A short fragment of the story

Perché questo CD mi ricorda l’Europa?

Semplice, perché sempre prima della trasmissione del concerto veniva mandata in onda la musica dell’Eurovisione, che mi piaceva anche molto, una marcia francese, come poi venni a sapere. Ricordo che lo schermo della Tv era grigio scuro con una serie di stelline messe in cerchio, al centro del quale una dea alzava una fiaccola. Le stelline stavano a simbolizzare i paesie europei. Ora ho cercato la sigla e non ho più trovato la dea, ma solo le scritte delle televisioni europee… 

Ma la musica mi piace ancora e mi dà un’idea di Europa che altrimenti non avrei. 

Allora mi piaceva ll’idea che non eravamo noi i soli a vedere la trasmissione, ma insieme a noi l’Europa… che sentivo presente nell’etere. 

Grande l’immaginazione e il suo potere!
