Paul Krugman, Potenza, Masini and ArtsPR in 2022

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with The New York Times community.

DPQuinn | New JerseyPaul you are forgetting the Know Nothing Party which reflects so much of the Republicans today. The KNP (which was sidelined by Lincoln) eventually morphed into the KKK, Dixie-crats, and today’s Trumpies aka non-RINO’s.

Here is a citation on Potenza, where Antonio Masini (1933-2018) worked and lived and Potenza’s sister City Denver Colorado. Does anyone have any contacts in Denver so we could mount this show and focus on mile-high Potenza as well ?
Potenza is located in the Basilicata region in southern Italy. The city is one of the highest regional capitals in Italy and overlooks the Basento valley. During the time of the Romans, Potenza had taken the side of the enemies of Rome during the wars against the Brutti.Potenza – Life in Italy
My contacts there include the artist Antonio Masini (1933-2019) whose works I have shown here, and others who work in Archeology when this area was part of Magna Grecia in ancient times.

Very interesting, adroit, and helpful—one can only hope that all the powers to be or not to be WILL read and act on this for the greater good, and not by 6 to 3.

As one who directed the Black Jesus PASSION PLAY that made headline news from the front page of the New York Post to The Today Show, Spain, Poland and beyond, we need our classical roots . We must RETHINK what Theatre means and not pacify it by plastic subterfuge. There are extraordinary productions of Greek tragedy live and on-line from Athens. The audience is social distanced. There was a remarkable RIGOLETTO in the Circus Maximus that used cars as part of the mise-en-scene for distance, but no masks. They are thrilling solutions as Art of theatre not subterfuge.
