All of this has the ambition to retrace in a refined way every evolutionary stage in the artistic career of this Genoese singer-songwriter. At the same time, it can release a musicality that is in line with the most appreciated instrumental evolutions, which Fabrizio de Andrè himself has perfected over the years, and that entails an encounter of genres and styles with a strong emotional impact.
THE PARADICE ORCHESTRA
The Paradice Orchestra plays every Thursday and dedicates each concert to a great pop-rock artist, testing both modern and classic arrangements in order to combine pop, classical and contemporary music.
The Orchestra is born from the union between Los Locos Armando’s, well-established local rock band, with the pianist Massimo Faes and the eclectic Phenix, all female string trio. The result is a music that can be collocated between sacred and profane and between rock and classical music.

Nick Turri – Drums
Emanuele Ghirardini – Guitar
Roberto Marzucchi – Bass
Massimo Faes – Keyboard
Ilaria Giorgi – Cello
Maria Pizio – Viola
