Having been in Rome many times since my Rome Prize Fellowship year 1986-87, I came across my first "Qui Abitava" plaque on via Garibaldi across from the Santa Maria dei Sette Dolori in Trastevere. After some research I discovered that these plaques, "stolpersteine," were created by a German artist, Gunter Demnig, and he personally installed all of them all over Italy and Europe.

The stories behind these plaques are so heartbreaking that I wanted to write a piece of music to commemorate their history. I chose six names from the many thousands of plaques that Gunther Demnig installed in Italy and they are presented in chronological order of their births. 

1. Moisé Calimani, 1870-1944    Largo

2. Augusto Sperati, 1881-1944 Agitato

3. Silvia Sermoneta, 1897-1944 Adagio, Moderato

4. Silvana Levi, 1920-1945 Adagio

5. Claudio Piperno, 1923-1944 Adagio, Andante

6. Luisa Levi, 1929-1945 Largo
