Alessandra Belloni and I Giullari di Piazza will hold their annual fundraiser and performance Dec. 17 at the Lunella Restaurant in Little Italy. The Company will present awards to noteworthy Italian/American figures, Angelina Fiordellissi, Artistic/Exec. Dir. of Cherry Lane Theatre; Actor/Writer Saverio Guerra; Director/photographer Lisa Leone; and author Alex Iantaffi. The festive evening will include a performance of I Giullari’s ‘TARANTATA,’ an impeccably researched production rich with songs, tarantellas, and magic rituals used to cure the mythical bite of the tarantula, along with healing chants and ritual drumming in honor of the Black Madonna. Performed with authentic costuming and instrumentation, and ending with a rousing tarantella for the cast and audience members with dancing feet!
