"When the Artistic Director Roland Böer presented this year’s theme of the Cantiere, War and Peace, to us, he suggested having an event in one of the City’s “shelters”. I knew right away that the perfect place was Palazzo Bracci which, in June 1944, sheltered refugee children and the Origo family escaping from the Foce under bombing as the allied front advanced. When I spoke to him, he was so keen that he asked me to take care of the project personally. I had already had contacts with the Bracci family and had met Alberto Bracci Testasecca who still lives in the family building. He also was immediately enthusiastic about the project and made his incredible and little known estate gardens available to us for it. The essential participation of Silvia Luzzi, who abridged and adapted the texts and direct testimonies, the music developed by Roland Böer himself and the precious contribution of the Origo-Lysy family brought the project to life." Gianni Giaccio Trabalzini
