Goblets of Stars

 Summer long-awaited toast!

14th edition

 

Thursday 10 august 2017 Goblets of Stars (Calici di Stelle) is back, brightening up the historic center of Castelvetro di Modena. This event is held simultaneously in many Italian squares and it proved itself to be the most important summer event of our national winetourism scene. It is promoted by the National Association of Wine Cities (Associazione Nazionale Città del Vino) and the Wine Tourism Movement (Movimento Turismo del Vino). Goblets of Stars gathers wineries and traditional gastronomy, for a magical evening of tastings and shooting stars.

After the success of the last edition, the event will be proposed again in its “travelling” version, to live every secret corner of Castelvetro ancient village.

Wineries will have personal table display, positioned in the historic center, and will present the best of their productions; local restaurants will propose high- quality specialties in a street food version.

Suggestive music, exhibitions, and stargazing in the charming Piazza della Dama: everything will captivate the visitor, living an unique tasting experience.

During this magical night the village will turn into a starry sky: it will be divided in four zones inspired by the four most famous constellations: Great Bear, Little Bear, Cassiopeia, Andromeda

Clarinet, double basso, percussion. Project born from the willingness to present and connect the Swing and the Klezmer, with an interpretation connected to the tradition and at the same time to the freshness of this two music genres. The peculiarity of the proposal is the vital energy unleashed by the band reinterpreting the pieces, weaving an embroidery from which arise the voice of the clarinet.

UN SASSOFONO BLU 
Max Marmiroli - sax  
Follon Brown – electric guitar

A tenor sax, accompained by a Fender Stratocaster electric guitar, will resume many beautiful pop, soul and rock songs and, betrayed the words, played innovative versions with all their range of emotions untouched. The result is a pleasant and popularized exhibition about the fascinating story of a instrument created by one of the 1800s genius, Adolphe Sax and o of the “heroes” that made it famous.
