ACE Visits ICTM in Italy

May 5, 2018 | by

The Association for Cultural Equity returned to Italy this Spring to honor its rich history of collaborations with Italian singers, dancers, and tradition-bearers, recording and appreciating the region’s living heritage. 

In April, ACE President Anna Lomax Wood, Executive Director Jorge Arévalo Mateus, Managing Director Kiki Smith-Archiapatti and family visited [ICTM] to repatriate songs and videos with singers and descendents, and discuss partnerships to preserve Italian heritage. It was a moving and encouraging visit, with recollections of Alan’s early trips to the region and commitments to support folkways into the future.
