Summer of ’82: When Zappa Came to Sicily
Documentary by Salvo Cuccio. U.S. premiere.
For the screening, “Convivio Society would like to invite San Diegans to come forward with stories, photos, and memorabilia that tell the story of Frank Zappa’s sojourn in San Diego, as well as the fascinating aspects of his musical career.”
The film documents Zappa’s trip to the Sicilian capitol of Palermo, where his family lived before moving to America, to perform the final date of his 1982 European tour, though the show ended when patrons caused what was later characterized as a “riot.”
