Ariadne’s Notes: January 18, 1:10 pm, CFRO, 100.5 FM, PST. Wonderful show, amazing music by Opoku Mensah. Also, a wonderful interview with Janet Russ on the impactful films that they are working on. Our World Poetry Café Team: Ariadne Sawyer, MA, producer and host, Dr. Diego Bastianutti, guest host and Sharon Rowe, special volunteer. Music by Opoku Mensah and a song by Luciano Pavarotti. English and Italian. Included was a fascinating e-peace poem by the well known poetess Huguette Bertrand, entitled GOLDEN PEACE and read by Victor Swartzman.
Guest host Diego Bastianutti took us through his experiences as a child refugee during the second world war. The silo that they were housed in had housed the Jewish people on the way to the death camps, the Italians who had been murdered and driven from their country (Diego and family) and now houses African migrants. “Diego said it was like a scene from Dante’s Hell.” Amazing how patterns keep repeating themselves over and over again.
