Dear Reader,

Hereafter you’ll find a list of weekend meetings the Italian Circle held during the period 2000-2010 with a break between 2002 and 2003.

I’d just like to say few things about the specific features of such a stream of events:

If I look at it from where I am now, it looks like our approach was more towards the “Special Study Group” rather than a more typical course-like event-sequence which other Circles adopted in time.

We’ve been working pretty much all the way through, under the header of “study hall”, adopting a framework larger than just the duration of a single meeting, a program based on the 4 main fields of activities related to the guitar practice (callisthenics, fretboard knowledge, repertoire and fun), and from 2004 onwards, requesting certain pre-requisites to participate; we’ve been also doing quite few private and public performances. As a natural consequence of such an approach, the members of the team remained pretty much the same throughout the decade, with only few changes in time.

Also, I didn’t mention quite few other meetings/projects which took place within such timeframe, generated by the Circle activity which I consider as not exactly “proper Italian Circle Meetings”, i.e. north and south sub-group meetings, “Quails” and/or “Turkeys” (names we gave to different level of competence about playing the instrument) sub-groups meeting, Desiderata (an actual band which was formed by members of the Circle), performance projects at a Franciscan Convent near Udine, and so on.

Here’s the calendar:
