Prix Italia Book+6CD 23633
Massive (english/italian) 400 page Book (Edited by Angela Ida de Benedictis and Maddalena Novati) with 6CDs boxed edition dedicated to some of the most compelling Italian radio works which took part in the prestigious Prix Italia, a world-famous contest established by the RAI (the National Italian broadcasting company) in the early Sixties and still well alive today, aimed to award the best and most uncompromising audio-visual produced throughout the world. Imagination at play. The Prix Italia and Radiophonic Experimentation presents seven original radio plays - some of them previously unreleased - which entered the competition from 1961 to 1981, complete with two audio interviews to some of the participants. The works have been taken from the original RAI tapes, carefully restored and impeccably re-mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, making them a splendid listening experience. The accompanying 400 pages book (in Italian and English) features seven essays written by some of the most prominent experts in this field, plus a long interview to Mr. Sermonti and the complete transcriptions (again in Italian and English) of all the featured works.
