Just to add to the news about Russolo, it was an honour to receive the "City
of Varese prize for my piece "El Reposo del Fuego" in 1988, but the prize
money I was supposed to receive never came. I received a nice one-page
announcement from them, with no cheque attached and no explanation either. I
too wrote a letter of inquiry: no response.

J'ai remporte le Prix de la ville de Varese en 1988 pour ma piece <El Reposo
del Fuego> mais je n'ai jamias vu le cheque. J'ai recu l'annonce, sans cheque,
ni explication. J'avais egalement ecrit une letter d'enquete: pas de reponse.
