La Scaffetta: Poems from the Foundling Drawer

ByMary Rohrer-Dann

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
A cloistered orphan-girl orchestra. The canals, palaces, and pageants of baroque Venice. A jealous music teacher. The composer-priest Antonio Vivaldi. At center, a brilliant young violinist, Gabriella. These poems interweave Gabriella’s story with the stories of the other girls and women of Ospedale della Pieta. Women of multiple talent: violinists, cellists, flautists, sopranos, altos, tenors. Women of valuable skills and trades: cooks, chemists, lace-makers, serving maids.
