This book deals with the social exclusion of Romanies (‘Gypsies’) in Italy. Based on interviews with Romani individuals, institutional and Civil Society Organisations’ (CSOs) representatives, participant observation and a broad range of secondary sources, the volume focuses on the conditions of those living in Rome’s urban slums and on the recent implementation of the so-called ‘Emergenza Nomadi’ (Nomad Emergency). The enactment of this extraordinary measure concealed the existence of a long-established institutional tradition of racism and control directed at Romanies.

Riko è un uomo onesto che vive di un lavoro che non ha scelto nella casa di famiglia che riesce a mantenere a stento, ma può contare su un gruppo di amici veri e su una moglie che, tra alti e bassi, ama da sempre. Suo figlio è il primo della famiglia ad andare all'università. Riko è però anche un uomo molto arrabbiato con il suo tempo, che sembra scandito solo da colpi di coda e false partenze. Quando perde le poche certezze con cui era riuscito a tirare avanti, la bolla in cui vive si rompe e Riko capisce che deve prendere in mano il suo presente e ricominciare, in un modo o nell'altro. E non darla vinta al tempo che corre.

Set to vernacular texts dealing mainly with the theme of love, frottole were short, improvisatory polyphonic songs with instrumental accompaniment that flourished in the Renaissance courts of Italy for some forty years between c. 1480 and 1520. Despite its apparent simplicity, this completely new genre of song inspired some of Europe’s greatest vocal and instrumental musicians. The recent invention of movable type added further to its popularity. This recording explores a representative selection, including work published by the historically pivotal figure of Ottaviano Petrucci.
