They sing to make contact between generations and different nationalities and to recover the thread of recollections. They are the Choir of the carers, a group formed by older women and by people who care for them by day and by night. The first meeting, which took place on March 12 at Villa Piaggio in Genoa, will be followed by eleven others: all, free of charge, on Monday, until next June 17. The initiative, which has so far involved about ten women - half originating from the Ukraine, Russia and Ecuador - is the brainchild of actress Carla Peirolero, in collaboration with UniAuser, The Elderly Today and with the support of the foundation Carige. Directing the singers is Laura Parodi, a specialist in popular music, according to whom "singing allows you to circulate unheard energies. We want to give importance to the cultures of the carers and the elderly, who often have no way to express themselves." The choir's repertoire is chosen as they go along, with the contribution of carers and the elderly. The first piece performed was I want to go to America , a traditional song about emigration.
