“CLAUSTRI MUSICA” ENCHANTS AT THE CLOISTER OF SAINTS PETER AND URSUS IN AOSTA: A BENEFIT CONCERT FOR THE RESTORATION OF MAURITIAN TABLETS

On Sunday, July 7, 2024, at the restored cloister of the Collegiate Church of Saints Peter and Ursus in Aosta, the first of a series of five concerts named “Claustri Musica” was held. Performing was the Sync Brass group, a brass quintet composed of Lorenzo Bonaudo on trumpet, Florin Bodnarescul on horn, Riccardo Combetto on tuba, Enrico Negro, principal trumpet of the Orchestra of the Teatro Regio in Turin, coordinated by Maestro Devid Ceste, principal trombone of the National Symphony Orchestra of the RAI.

The event, the first of five concerts, aimed to celebrate the beginning of the restoration of the so-called “Mauritian Plaques” of the Umberto Parini Regional Hospital, inaugurated and managed by the Mauritian Order in 1942. The two plaques, of considerable size (about 2 meters by 6 meters each), commemorate not only the construction of the current hospital but also the previous one, located where the Regional Administration Building now stands. These monuments represent a significant historical testament to the most important interventions in the 450-year Mauritian history of the Aosta Valley.

The benefit event, organized by the Delegation of the Dynastic Orders of the Aosta Valley and the City Band Association, was attended by 150 people, the maximum allowed by the cloister’s dimensions. Among the attendees were dames and knights of the Lombardy Delegation, accompanied by the Delegate, Grand Officer Alberto Di Maria, representatives of the AUSL of the Aosta Valley, the Superintendent of Cultural Heritage, the City Council, the Cogne SPA Company, and the Marmi Perino Company of Aosta.

The musical afternoon concluded with an aperitif in the courtyard of the Priory Palace of the Collegiate Church of Saints Peter and Ursus, offered by the dames and knights of the Aosta Valley Delegation. The restored monument will be presented to the public on September 22, the feast of Saint Maurice, in the presence of H.E. Grand Chancellor Johannes Theo Niederhauser and H.R.H. Prince Emanuele Filiberto.
