Via dei dollari” is an hour-long presentation in English with poems and songs performed in Italian.

“Via dei dollari,” or Dollar Street, is the name of the avenue that runs through the center of Casteldardo, a small town in the Marche region known throughout the world for the accordions it manufactures. “Via dei dollari” is also the name of a musical and theatrical celebration of this magical instrument presented by Rovine Circolari, an Ancona-based troupe directed by actress and singer Isabella Carloni. Through stories, poems and songs, Carloni and accordionist Christian Riganelli will conjure a generation of Italian immigrants who left their homeland with little more than their dreams and their accordions in search of a better life in America.

Performances are made possible through the generosity of Istituto Italiano di Cultura and Regione Marche, as well as Casa Italia and Loyola University Chicago.
