Centro di Spiritualità S. Lucia Filippini – Montefiascone 19/09/2006
The house fits very well into the category of GC facility, and it’s structured very much like S. Cugat: it may host up to 30/35 people at the most, it has kitchen, dining room and 2 more rooms at ground level, R. room one level up, class rooms one more level up, dormitory one more level up; simple, clean and it has all we need. Next door there is a convent of nuns which is up and running, and on top of the dormitories there’s a beautiful little chapel, also up and running.
We decided to use a classroom at 2nd floor for the Sitting, but choose a room next to the dining room at the ground level for the guitar Circles, because of the impossible reverberation of the classrooms upstairs.
The list of participants:
Robert Fripp (instructor)
Alessandro Bruno (Registrar – IC/TTA)
Alessandro Papa (KC – IC/TTA)
Filippo Guerini (HM – IC/TTA)

Anna Cefalo (Guest TTA)
Mattia Clera (Guest TTA)
M. Loredana Sarnataro (Guest IC)
Massimo Di Giacomo (Guest IC)

So, together with the core people (Italian Circle – Tuning The Air AAD – committed) we invited Attilio (who chickened out from TTA but always been an IC member), Paolo (who manifested his wish to come in S.Cugat), Massimo, Anna and Mattia (who are at the moment part of the TTA lineup), Loredana and Massimo (brand new people who attended 2 Introduction courses in Kiel and S. Cugat but at their first with the IC).

The Introductions meeting was pretty smooth, R. said that he came because I asked him to come and he does what I ask him to do. Then suggested to pick up the instruments and come back straight away.
Circulation any note of our choice: we have 11 NST tuned Ovations plus a 12 string without strap tuned I don’t know how played with a round pick, a Celtic harp, and a grand stick; but so far so good. Then R. asked us to do the same but following a rhythm in 5 playing on bits 1 and 4.
