Political Perspective, e-journal of the University of Manchester

                   «Rosani's paper not only traces the influence of politics on the compositional process over the nineteenth and twentieth realizes this relationship in her own compositions. She describes her compositions about the Italian politics of immigration and corruption, along with their relationship to illegal organizations, as an “aesthetic of resistance”. This profoundly innovative paper reveals how Rosani experiments with elements such as choruses, stage action, rhythm, pitch, resonances, and spectral analysis and performance spaces in order to “mirror” the political content of a text. However, what she argues is that whilst her compositions are inspired by texts for instance by Roberto Saviano or Cesare Pavese that, “the written word becomes sound an audible metaphor of the unheard, giving voice to those who can no longer speak or never did”. In this sense she not only challenges who can speak but what counts as speaking.»
