The 24 magio from Asiago to Gallio.. is the first verse of a song, probably of storytellers recorded in Val di Posina (municipality of Arsiero in Provincia di Vicenza) from an old former millworker, the first witness to a long series of stories we collect some twenty years ago from eyewitnesses of World War I, including some women who remembered the war as happened a few days earlier.

These songs and these stories made by survivors have made the first world war, for all these people was simply the WAR, for us, which we studied only in the history books, a world of personal small events each of which carries within itself the strength of direct testimony.

For this show we dredged up some of these stories in music and some short stories, adding songs and copyright notice, enter now to become part of the musical history of the great war and stories taken from the literature that could complete a framework which, inevitably, was incomplete, but rich in emotions and centered first on original materials of Veneto and Trentino or surrounding areas. So in the eyes of the viewer appearing in the life of the trenches, the plight of refugees driven from their homes by the war that advances, the great dramas that are reflected in the lives of individuals and families within a framework that although will never give the image of that frightening moment that was the great war, it returns definitely atmospheres and emotions.
