Padova inhabitants learned about the Silver Age


RF Ministry of Culture

Russian culture festival Russian Image runs in Padova, Italy, from 10 to 21 of March. This event is dedicated to the Silver Age. The organizers made an attempt to return 100 years back rediscovering the art of the beginning of XX century, an art-director of the festival Natalya Pirogova noted.

The festival is the crossroads for Russian compatriots living in Padova. According to Mrs Pirogova, Russian community is very active in that region. Many people join to listen to Pasternak and Mandelshtam poetry, to attend exhibitions and concerts. Russian Image festival is a great occasion to gather compatriots once again.

There was a conference dedicated to the writer Bulgakov and the philosopher Gurdgiev at the opening date of the festival, March 10. The festival will close on May 21 with dance show I Believe in You, where moms and kids will participate.

17 July 1998 was a warm day, abnormally bright for Petersburg. The houses along Moscovsky Avenue let down silk tricolor flags—lowered and joined with ribbonsof mouring. The traffic lights blinked yellow. The avenue, usually lively and filled with cars, was empty; policemen in white gloves stood on ceremonial, one positioned every 50 meters. “What happened?” asked Petersburgers in surprise. “We await the Emperor,” answered the sentries. “Nikolai Romanov.”
Last weekend, Totma—a small town even by the Vologda Region’s standards—marked its 880-year anniversary and celebrated a traditional Russian America Day. The city once prided itself on its salt making and the seafaring merchants who traded in Siberia and America. It was a native of Totma, Ivan Kuskov, who founded Fort Ross in California, and today the town is visited by official delegations from the USA and representatives of indigenous American groups.
