From

near Venice; attualmente dalle parti di Venezia - ma non è casa mia

Occupation

I'm an absolute beginner, and I'm absolutely sane (?!)

Interests

****We surrender to the dictatorship of the English language.
Various interests: books, arts, music, women's rights and others.
I have read a lot, and forgot even more. I wrote a bit. Perhaps Cristina Campo* was right when she used to say about herself: "She wrote a bit and would have liked to have written less."
Unfortunately or fortunately, writing was not destined to be my vocation.

*Poet and literary critic, from Bologna.

ITALIAN VERSION
Ho letto molto, e ancor di più ho dimenticato. Ho scritto qualcosa; forse aveva ragione Cristina Campo* che amava dire di sè: "Ha scritto poco, e le piacerebbe aver scritto meno". Purtroppo o per fortuna, non m'è toccato in sorte di farlo per mestiere.

*poetessa e critica letteraria, bolognese

About me

Italy in pop music is something else, not just commercial melody - Pausini-Ramazzotti- Zucchero-Il Volo- Al Bano etc ...
It is or was also the ability to innovate and experiment, originality in writing and arrangements. Authenticity. real emotion.
And this is what I look for. Also expressed in other languages different from my own.
The interest in classical and contemporary Neapolitan song - NO neomelodici - is derived from my native family, which are in Campania although not in Naples.
But I'm glad to be helpful and solve the requests of others, even if not always according with my musical tastes.
Where I'm going, I don't know...It would be so nice to enjoy the voyage, but it is not so easy.

ITALIAN VERSION
'Italia nella musica leggera è anche altro, non solo melodia commerciale - Pausini-Ramazzotti-Zucchero-Il Volo- Al Bano ecc...
E' o era anche capacità di innovare e sperimentare, originalità nella scrittura e negli arrangiamenti. Autenticità. Emozione vera.
E' questo quello cerco. Anche espresso in altre lingue, diverse dalla mia.
L'interesse per la canzone napoletana classica e contemporanea - NO NEOMELODICI - deriva dalle radici della mia famiglia d'origine,che sono in Campania anche se non a Napoli. Per cui conosco e capisco la lingua napoletana, sicuramente meglio della media degli italiani provenienti da altre regioni, anche se non sono in grado di parlarla correntemente.
