Vinicio Capossela VECCHI TASTI
Camera a Sud 30th Anniversary
Tribute concert for Sergio Piazzioli

Vinicio Capossela became known with “All’una e trentacinque circa”, his debut album under the guidance of Renzo Fantini. More than thirty years ago, he created his out-of-the-box style filled with euphoric influences. An unpredictable and extravagant artist, a cultured man referencing Modigliani and Oscar Wilde, and popular in “Il Ballo di San Vito”. Vinicio Capossela is a multiform talent who is perfectly at ease in music, writing, poetry, cinema, radio, theater, and festival artistic direction. For this reason, he is considered by many to be the most important italian songwriter of his generation.

He had his thunderous debut in 1990. Many saw him as an Italian Tom Waits, perhaps more lunatic but with the same taste for grotesque and night-wandering ballads that smell like visionary existentialism. His album “All’una e trentacinque circa” earned him his first Targa Tenco, an award he would be given five other times in the following years.
For such an unconventional artist like him, the first international success came soon: his 1995 concert sold out at the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris.

Vinicio’s popular roots (he was born in Hannover to parents from Irpinia) entered his artistic path, along with literature references, even Dante’s. Music became more complex (including Marc Ribot’s acid guitar and Macedonian brass bands) without losing the naturalness of the melodic invention. This artistic path created countless tours, theater projects and eighteen studio and live albums. The most recent one is “Tredici canzoni urgenti”.

Capossela also performed at the Festival di Sanremo, the Festival dei Due Mondi in Spoleto and Umbria Jazz (one night at the Giardini del Frontone, where Ribot played in his band).

This concert is a tribute to Sergio Piazzoli, an important music promoter from Perugia who was his friend and admirer from the beginning of his career. It is organized in collaboration with the Comitato “Per Sergio Piazzoli” on the 10th anniversary of his death.

For the 30th anniversary of his album “Camera a sud”, Altri tasti (Capossela’s summer tour) leaves the stage to Vecchi tasti, a unique concert in which the 1994 album’s thirteen songs are performed. The 30th anniversary is not meant to be a celebration but a reinterpretation with the awareness that comes from a different phase of life: “Playing these songs is a way to keep living in them, more animated by gratitude than nostalgia”. It’s a real journey on the thread of time.
