Here below the programme of the lyric concert, 15 July 1953,
held on the evening before the arrival of the liner in New York.
Among the audience there was the President of the "Bertolli Trading Corporation",
Mr. Henry Scaramelli who, after having heard M. Verso in this concert,
offered him a sequence of broadcastings at the
Radiostation W.H.O.M. of New York.
