6th September 2014 – Luciano Messeger of peace

This homage to Maestro Pavarotti was intended to remind his philanthropic spirit and how he committed himself, both on personal and professional sides, for many worthy causes often forgotten by the media, even in the role of the United Nations Messenger of Peace, that he received in 1998 by the UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
The event was held in Piazza Grande and it was presented by Milly Carlucci, the host of almost all the editions of the “Pavarotti & Friends” concerts, who has greeted with impeccable elegance and spontaneity the artists who were performing on stage.
Special guest of the evening was the young and talented musician Raphael Gualazzi who played “Blowin ‘in the Wind” and “Imagine” with his personal style and his hit “Sai”.

Raphael Gualazzi has also duetted, interpreting “Caruso” and “Miss Sarajevo”, with some of the emerging young tenors who were Giuseppe Caltagirone, Davide Carboni, Matteo Desole, Alessandro Fantoni, Giuseppe Gambi, Marco Miglietta and Jenish Ysmanov (from Kyrgyzstan).

On the stage, the Orchestra dell’Opera Italiana accompanied the artist set list, directed for the event by Maestro Aldo Sisillo, the manager of Teatro Comunale “Luciano Pavarotti” in Modena and the music consultant of the young tenors was Maestro Paolo Andreoli.
In addiction to this, some famous actors, such as Isabella Ferrari, Giulio Scarpati and Daniele Pecci, got up on the stage of Modena to interpret with great intensity and emotional involvement texts about peace and human rights’ protection and the Maestro Pavarotti’s friends, Anna Cataldi and Alfonso Signorini, proved on the stage their affection.
In order to commemorate the Maestro were presented some videos which recalled the most important moments of the “Pavarotti & Friends” concerts, the openings of some educational centres in Guatemala and Bosnia, as well as international awards conferred to the Maestro in the international field.
