[Foto] “Pasquale Taraffo and the Harp Guitar, circa 1910” in mostra
Via Retronaut.com. Un po’ di campanilismo via Wikipedia: “Pasquale Taraffo (Genova, 14 novembre 1887 – Buenos Aires, 24 aprile 1937) è stato un chitarrista italiano.” E c’è una clip di Taraffo che suona in un post di un paio di anni fa.
La foto fa parte di una mostra ai National Archives di Washington:
When he came to the United States, he applied for a visa based on artistic abilities, and probably had to submit evidence of his exceptional talent in order to enter the country. Photo postcards of Taraffo with his harp guitar, along with a handbill for his 1926 concert in Corregio, Italy, were found, but these documents were separated from any of his other documents, mixed into what appears to be a dead letter file.
