Centro ZO, Piazzale Asia, 6, Catania CT – Sicily

Mario Caroli – Flute, Manuela Cigno – Piano: The design of its programs and the breadth of repertoire show a unique and authentic approach to the profession, as well as a highly personal artistic trajectory. In his recital he is switching from Ferneyhougha Marin Marais with the same disarming simplicity. In his art there are no barriers between the repertoires, and he rejects the classification of “specialist” of a limited kind of repertoire: Mario Caroli belongs to the small circle of artists able to play a classical concert and the most complex contemporary with the virtuosity and the same vivid musicality.

Franco Battiato and Alice in Concert: Concert by two important italian musical stars. Battiato is and has been for decades one of the most popular pop singer-songwriters in Italy. His unique sound, song-crafting and especially his lyrics, often containing philosophical, religious, and culturally exotic references, as well as tackling or painting universal themes about the human condition – unusual subjects for pop songs – earned him a unique spot on Italy’s music scene, and the nickname of “Il Maestro” (“The Master” or “The Teacher”). His work includes songwriting and joint production efforts with several Italian and international musicians and pop singers, including the long-lasting professional relationship with Italian singer Alice.
