The newspaper la Repubblica was born in Rome on January 14, 1976, by Eugenio Scalfari. His aim was to make the “Repubblica” a newspaper with a modern key: a light and romanticized narrative, typical of the 1950s and 1960s.
In the middle of January 1976, the new newspaper had great success on newsstands. “La Repubblica” is a newspaper that presents itself as an in-depth newspaper and comes out on newsstands from Tuesday to Sunday.
The headlines are written with characters that differ from those used by other newspapers and since they are larger, the length is twenty bars, which creates the need for a pun, making the title more impactful for the reader.
In 1996 the website was also created in an experimental version and a year later, the newspaper launched the official website of the newspaper, repubblica.it, which is a short time became the most important Italian news site.
I was deeply impressed by an article that addresses a topic that is really close to my heart, namely THE SHOW. The article I took into consideration attracted my attention right from the title: “The massacre of dance”. It is precisely an article that underlines the pain that Roberto Bolle (the first dancer in the world to be simultaneously Étoile of the Teatro alla Scala in Milan and Principal Dancer of the American Ballet Theater of New York, Guest Artist at the Royal Ballet, and spokesman for the Chamber of Deputies) feels for the conditions in which his art finds itself. I would like to rewrite the phrases that have been reported in the newspaper, namely: “Dance is constantly disheartened, treated like the Cinderella of the arts, with opera and symphonic music in the role of privileged sisters, to whom all the attention and care is reserved. was born this decision that seems almost unanimous to kill ballet in Italy? Certainly not for the unsustainability of the ballet bodies but for lack of knowledge of the sector and lack of vision of who is responsible for it. Because when there was a budget hole to be plugged in our opera houses, the most popular solution was to send the dancers home “.
The Republic has clearly dealt with the fixed points of the étoile and it is necessary to recognize the sensitivity in addressing such an issue. It is also highlighted that throughout Italy there are 17,000 schools, attended by one million and 400,000 children who, unfortunately, however, once they leave the schools do not have the possibility of employment in our peninsula and are forced to emigrate.
In conclusion, the dissemination of this news relating to the world of entertainment represents a cry of pain but above all the hope of a better vision and knowledge of the sector both at the government level and at the management of theaters. I invite everyone to reflect but above all to remember that “art sweeps our soul from the dust of everyday life”; art is life and you have to take care of it!
