About "The Week Of Neapolitan Pizza":
Following the recent decision of UNESCO to inscribe the art of the Neapolitan Pizzaiuolo in its List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco and Dress in Dreams Movie & Costume of Rome have organized a week of events to celebrate Neapolitan Pizza in San Francisco and the Bay Area.
Pizza-making demonstrations, a photo exhibition, panel discussions, and endless pizza tastings at the best Neapolitan pizzerias will be featured throughout the week. Representatives of the AVPN (Authentic Neapolitan Pizza Association) will be in attendance from Italy to bring their appreciation and support to all those who strive to strengthen the value of authenticity of one of the most emblematic products of the Made in Italy.
The initiative is brought together with the collaboration of the Consulate General of Italy in San Francisco and the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) of Naples, Italy, and with the support of Italy’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism (MIBACT).
Top notch Italian groove and funk-based music. If Stevie Wonder or Jamiroquai were Italian, it would sound like this!!
You probably know what Funk is, you may know what Italian music sounds like, but do you have any idea of what Italian Funk Music is?
Fresh and definitely unique, Sonamo’ is one the hottest bands in the SF Bay Area, bringing the energy, the happiness and the quality of their music on stage.
We dare you to change your perception of Italian music by blending the music background of each band member (funk, jazz, rock with a Latin twist) while keeping the Italian influence at the backbone.
As a matter of fact, Sonamo’ performs tunes that have roots in the deepest Italian tradition with African, Hispanic and Middle Eastern influences, since the Italian territory has been colonized by many different cultures throughout the history.
The musicians are extremely talented; the exciting vibe is contagious and sometimes mesmerizing but easy to listen. In a nutshell, either you dance or listen to it, you’ll have a blast.
Experience first-hand to believe it!
Sonamo' - Italian Funk
Sonamo' meaning comes from a dialect word from Napoli (ITALY) which literally means “play now!” but it's actually slang for "show me what you got [in a provocative way]”.
Band founder Giuseppe Pinto moved to San Francisco CA in 2010 from Italy, after walking his path through the music scene in City, he started playing with several local bands and artists.
After few years, he came to the realization that there is a lack of modern Italian music in the American music scene. On top of all, Italian music is well known and often associated with its classical side while there is an unknown world of jazz and funk.
The meeting with guitarist Trent Berry brought to the decision of putting together a band that can express a smooth blend of Italian and American culture through music.
The band proposes original music where one can listen to possible to the different background of each band member
DJ Marc van Brabant
Dropping some European Deep House beats with nostalgic sounds of the past. Marc is not afraid to play that favorite 80's tune and mix with the latest future house track from Amsterdam. He is constantly looking for new tunes that have an international flavor with a banging bass but will never shy away from a good classic house set!
