In Havana Cuba Celebrates Week of Italian Culture
According to the Italian Ambassador in Cuba, Domenico Vecchioni, the event, which will be dedicated to the 150th birthday anniversary of Giacomo Puccini and the 70th anniversary of the death of Gabriele D’Annunzio, will serve as a dialogue instrument between the peoples of Italy and Cuba.

The Italian diplomat and Havana Historian Eusebio Leal highlighted the close ties between the country of Dante Alighieri and the Cuban capital, founded in 1519, the same year of Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday.

The program of the event includes round tables by Senator Giulio Andreotti and journalist Massimo Franco and the presentation of a volume of poems by D’Annunzio.

Also in Cuba for the cultural event will be jazz player Larry Franco and pianist Nazareno Carusi.
