With Olimpiade the famous poet Metastasio created one of the most popular librettos of the 18th century. It was set to music by over 60 baroque and classical composers including Vivaldi, Caldara, Hasse, Cimarosa and Donizetti. Pergolesi’s composition from 1735 was one of the earliest adaptations…

Antonio Lucio Vivaldi (4 March 1678 – 28 July 1741), nicknamed il Prete Rosso ("The Red Priest") because of his red hair, was an Italian Baroque composer, Catholic priest, and virtuoso violinist, born in Venice. Recognized as one of the greatest Baroque composers, his influence during his lifetime was widespread over Europe. Vivaldi is known mainly for composing instrumental concertos, especially for the violin, as well as sacred choral works and over forty operas. His best known work is a series of violin concertos known as The Four Seasons.

We owe the rediscovery of Pergolesi's 1735 opera about the Olympics not so much to the build-up to next year's games in London, but to the composer's tercentenary in 2010. It's a long work (four hours), and even by 18th-century standards, its narrative is convoluted. The athlete Magacle is competing – and cheating – in the games to win, on behalf of his friend Licida, the hand of Aristea, which her idiotic father has promised to the victor. Megacle has fallen in love with Aristea himself, however, and things are further complicated by the arrival of Licida's cast-off mistress Argene, and by the revelation that Licida is actually Aristea's long-lost twin brother…

Good as the Concerto Italiano recording of this opera is, for once it's not the best. This older live recording by the Clemencic Consort is truly of Olympian quality, chiefly because of the singers: the incomparable Gerard Lesne as Licida above all, and then Mieke von der Sluis singing just as well as Lesne, and Aris Christoffelis as Aminta. This is an opera featuring some uniquely imaginative duets, sharing among those three singers, whose expressiveness is unmatched. One of the keys to making a CD of a baroque opera enjoyable is the intensity of affect in the long accompanied recitativos, and these singers do exactly that. They sparkle with drama. Let me not slight the masculine voices, either; they rumble and thunder most artfully. And there's a bassoon out there in the orchestra pit who's not too bad, playing one of the craftiest bassoon parts in all of Vivaldi.

C’erano una volta un Pirata e un Cowboy. Troppo breve fu il loro duello sulle strade del Tour de France e dell’Olimpiade, nell’estate del 2000. Troppo breve e zeppo di bugie: avessimo conosciuto allora l’intera verità sul conto di Lance Armstrong, il Cowboy, forse il giudizio popolare su Marco Pantani, il Pirata, sarebbe stato molto diverso.
Il racconto di una rivalità che avrebbe potuto cambiare la storia del ciclismo moderno, nel cuore di una sfida da tragedia greca tra un Ettore e un Achille della bicicletta, merita di essere riscritto oggi…

Un'immagine che conosciamo tutti: un uomo barcolla faticosamente verso il traguardo della maratona all'Olimpiade di Londra, il 28 luglio 1908. Quell'uomo è Dorando Pietri, un'icona dello sport mondiale: tutti sanno che venne squalificato da quella gara perché un giudice di gara lo sorresse negli ultimi passi e che poi Alessandra, la regina d'Inghilterra, lo volle premiare ugualmente il giorno dopo con una coppa speciale. la storia del ragazzo che divenne l'atleta più famoso (e probabilmente più ricco) del suo tempo. Perché attraverso la vicenda di Pietri scopriamo che lo sport all'inizio del secolo era già un business, e che qualcuno ricorreva al doping (anche se era un doping meno sofisticato dell'attuale). La vita romanzesca e avventurosa di un «italiano vero», e uno spicchio appassionante della nostra storia e della storia dello sport.
