RADIOBRÜCKE 2019: RADIOEINS BROADCASTS LIVE FROM THE GOETHE-INSTITUT
The Radiobrücke (Radio Bridge) is one of the most successful partnership models of the Goethe-Institut’s film, television and radio division. For four days, a team from the cooperating partner radioeins (RBB) broadcasts several hours live from a Goethe-Institut abroad. Artists, journalists and politicians thus paint a profound and polyphonic picture of the host country. The interviews, features and reports can be received in the RBB area via VHF or streamed on www.radioeins.de.
After stops in Athens, Istanbul, Warsaw and New York, the Radiobrücke 2019 is now a guest in Naples. Under the title “Ciao Napoli!” the radioeins team will be broadcasting for four days from the Goethe-Institut in the Italian city, devoting the programme to the varied political, social and cultural situation in the country. Among the guests is the mayor of Naples, Luigi de Magistris, one of the best-known Italian politicians and intellectuals. The current developments in Italian politics and the state of Italy in the EU will be an important topic of the Radiobrücke. After the collapse of the Italian alliance and the forming of a new government, the political situation is uncertain and public debt is still high. In addition to political discussions, radioeins reporters investigate the question of what connects Naples to Berlin: Famed Neapolitan pizza is just as popular in Berlin as Bavarian beer taverns and Berlin corner bars are in Naples. But crime, waste disposal and public transport are also constant issues in the two cities. Other guests of the live broadcast include representatives of the Fridays for Future movement, the volcanologist Lucia Pappalardo and the politician Eleonora de Majo.
In addition, the reporters offer a number of insights into the life of the city: from the Pizza Festival to the catacombs of Naples to Diego Maradona. In addition, there will be music from one of Italy’s abundant music scenes: Neapolitan artists such as the singers Flo and Fabiana Martone present the sound of their city on the terrace of the Goethe-Institut. New daily: A mini-lesson on Neapolitan language and culture with German teachers and students from the Goethe-Institut.
In addition to the radio broadcasts on site, radioeins reports about the project in blogs, audios and videos on its website www.radioeins.de.
