On 12 November, the Lazio Delegation of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy organised a concert sponsored by the Embassy of Ukraine to the Holy See.
The Concert for Organ and Voice titled “Sacred Music for Ukraine”, under the artistic leadership of Maestro Giuseppe Tedeschi, Knight of the Grand Cross of the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus, Member of the National Academy of Arts of Ukraine, was widely applauded by the audience and was attended by a large number of Dames and Knights from the Lazio Delegation.
The musical programme was much appreciated both because of the performers’ skills and because it was based on late 19th-century American and Central European romantic music.
At the end of the concert, the Delegate for the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy, Comm. Avv. Alfonso Marini Dettina, hosted the Ukrainian Ambassadors to the Holy See and the Italian Republic with their wives, together with the Conductor Dmitry Morozov, the Rector of the Basilica and some members, the organisers of the cultural event, for a lunch at the Circolo degli Scacchi in Rome.
On this occasion, both Ambassadors wished to thank the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy for the immediate donation made to the Sant’Egidio Community to help Ukrainian refugees.
The cultural event brought together the Orthodox and Catholic Churches, the Ambassadors of Spain and those of Ukraine, as well as various artists from different parts of the world, all united by the same universal values.
