Let’s start the blog. And sorry for delay but we had some sort of problem with radio trasmission from Arsenale. And yesterday in Italy was bank holiday. Festa della Repubblica. Can you imagine? Now is working fine.
In the mean time we have already seen some Pavilions. Stay tune with the radio and blog to find out more. Only a quick note and a picture : of today’s early morning procession through the streets of Venice for the launch of New Zealand Pavilion led by a Māori kaumatua who gave the traditional New Zealand blessing of inauguration to the exhibitions. Followed by a spectacular powhiri (Māori welcome ceremony) by a 20-strong award-winning Kapa Haka group accompanied by a performance by Moana and the Tribe. You should have seen the faces of venetian people … just got up to go to work …
The Maori blessing will open our Sounds Like Venice – every day – starting from tomorrow morning at 10 a.m.
Message from Brane and Irena, our radioCona partner: phew! we are looking forward to see you soon.
