The Basciville duo are among the Irish guests of the SPLF 2020. We asked them a few questions about their involvement.
IM – What do you know of the SPLF, how did you get involved?
Basciville – I’m sorry to say we knew little about the festival until this year, more so through our private ignorance I might add.
We were lucky enough to be asked by Peter Murphy to work on a new project he was involved in. It’s always a pleasure to soundscape to Peter’s words but when the words literary festival and Italy were spoken we were sold.
IM – What are you going to do in Livorno?
Basciville – Well, besides making art with great people we plan on exploring ardently the local cuisine and vino. We’d also love to see Fortezza Vecchia if we get the chance!
IM – What do you expect from the SPLF2020?
Basciville – We hope to meet many like minded people and share and spread our love for Irish literature as well as discover some new authors or books.
IM – What do you know about Italian literature/ arts? Any author, book, you know and like?
Basciville – I recently read ‘The Leopard’ by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, which I enjoyed immensely. I would say two films in my top ten favourites of the last decade are Italian, being The Great Beauty and Lazzaro Felice.
