il 10 Marzo, al "Caffé Musica" di Greenwood, "Girardengo Night", dalle 7:00 pm a seguire. Un contenitore di vecchio e nuovo, serio e faceto, acustico ed elettronico, sacro e profano, kitsch ed elegante, copiato e copiabile, cose mie e cose che provo a fare mie. Per chi ha nostalgia, per chi non sa come farsela venire, per chi non ne ha ma ha alle orecchie quella strana malattia per cui ascolta preferibilmente musica italiana, per chi l'ha visto e per chi non c'era. Viaggio da lontano nel nostro pop più ammiccante. Vi aspettiamo numerosi.

Dear everyone (translated from Facebook),
On March 10, at Greenwood's Caffè Musica, "Girardengo night", from 7:00 pm - a set of old and new, serious and facetious, acoustic and electronic, sacred and profane, kitsch and elegant, copied and copy, my things and things I try to do that are not. For those who are homesick, for those who do not know how to make it out, for those who do not have it but have the ears to listen to Italian music, for those who saw it and for those who were not there. Travel from afar in our most winking pop. We are waiting for you.

Lorenzo Gatto started playing piano when he was nine-years-old. Inspired by some Italian songwriters of the day, he started writing original songs when he was 18-years-old. For the next 15 years Lorenzo was also influenced by American folksingers and rock legends.

In 2006, he founded the group Carmine Burana with cohorts Claudio Gori and Carmine Peluso. The band played concerts in music clubs and pubs, and at public events in Italy. They released their first EP, Pezz 2009, in February 2009. After 2011, Lorenzo began a solo career. He has collaborated with many artists, such as Marco Fontana, Antonio Piccolo, Ludovica Iovino, Francesco Cofone, Francesco Magnante, Fabrizio Mocata and others.

Lorenzo has also explored electronic music - teatro-canzone.  His new work entitled - Lorenzo Gatto Show is a journey through the history of Italian pop music from the 60’s until present and includes of mix original songs. Themes include recent Italian history from the epic migrations to modernity; the pop music has not only the natural continuation of a millenary tradition (from the ancient Greeks, through the traditional poetry until the opera), but also the mirror of the impact of modern times on Italian culture. This is Lorenzo's first presentation of this set of music outside of Italy.

Riccardo will present, “If You See Something, Play Something!” This solo performance piece is about the impact of the American culture on an Italian man in his fifties who has recently navigated becoming a U.S. citizen. However, this story unveils sentiments perhaps shared by other Nomadi Globali (Global Nomads). Riccardo notes, “With all respect for past immigrants, as the new ones, we live under completely different conditions.  Our roots are planted in our glorious past but fertilized with the last achievements of modern Italian culture. We maintain a living relationship with the homeland through social media and frequent travels. Our motivations to leave are different - job opportunities, love and marriage, or just the wish to have a new experience. We have a better understanding of language and issues, but even with all of that, life is complicated, homesickness is behind the door, discomfort and struggles a daily burden.”

We hope you can join us for this very special night of community. After the presentation there will be time for socializing and sharing stories and sentiments inspired by the presentation. Space and seating is limited so please reserve your seat early!
