In 1986 Lorenzo Arruga received from the Municipality of Ravenna the task of designing the city’s musical summer for the two-year period 1986-87, a task later confirmed and implemented in the RAVENNA IN FESTIVAL, Conceived and directed by Lorenzo Arruga with Lorenza Codignola and Mario Salvagiani, director of the Theaters of Ravenna. The following collaborate in the production: E.A. Teatro Comunale of Bologna, Symphony Orchestra of Emilia Romagna “Arturo Toscanini”, Teatro Verdi of Busseto, Teatro Regio of Parma. He made it with pleasure and absolute dedication.
The first edition declares commitment to creative proposals, aimed at the basic aspect of the city which is reflected in the Festival and offers the historical, aesthetic and moral uniqueness of its places and its people: novelties and roots, prominent artists and personalities and emerging young people, extraordinary. An antecedent of the RAVENNA FESTIVAL refounded in 1990 by Cristina Mazzavillani Muti, that is, from the very soul of the city. Of the first year, 1986, I have summary documentation: the imaginative plot of a month of events is crowded in an hour with fragments that give us a glimpse of the catalog of the fervent calendar. There was a ritual of places and events that invaded the city. The trumpeter who echoed his blare (beginning of the Third Sonata of Ravenna for strings by Rossini as a child) in the Piazza del Popolo half an hour before each event, and then a quarter of an hour before in the place of the event, the horse-drawn stagecoach drawn by Pier Luigi Pizzi (for “The straw hat of Florence” by Rota) which runs through the itinerary of the events, the reading of a song from the Divine Comedy at Dante’s Tomb on Saturday at dusk followed by a few minutes of music from the ‘ 900, “le Buonenotti” on Sundays at midnight.
