During my years in Berlin as assistant to Claudio Abbado and the Berlin Philharmonic, an editorial team along with Jürgen Petzinger from Incontri-Europei asked me to develop an analysis and a “reader” for the concert of Luigi Nono’s Canto Sospeso at the Philharmonie-Berlin in December 1992. The concert was recorded and published in a special DVD edition in collaboration with Susanne Lothar, Bruno Ganz, Angelica Ippolito, Gian Maria Volonté, Ben Kingsley and Umberto Eco.
The Nonoprojekt, using the DVD as supporting material, has been subsequently developed in order to inspire students to reflect upon the idea of freedom, democracy and tolerance in the context of different European schools. From the Faroe Islands to Varna, Wiesbaden to Padua, each school participated in the project with their own approach and variations in the subjects of Music, Language, History, Philosophy and Art. The bearer of the project is Fondazione L’Unione Europea, based in Berlin.
