March 2, 1986. Raphaella's New York debut recital at the Merkin Concert Hall in the Abraham Goodman House. Guest of honour was the legendary guitarist and instrument maker Mario Macaferri (1900-1990).
The day after, both artists were invited at the D'Addario's residence for an in-depth conversation. Raphaella revealed the secrets of her eightstring John Gilbert guitar and Mario introduced the (almost) forgotten music of Johann Kaspar Mertz.
