I met Angelo Tonelli in 1999, during one of his performances at the MAGA in Gallarate. I was just 18 years old then.
After submitting my poetic texts to him, a friendship was born based on mutual esteem and a common love for ancient Greek culture.
Since then I have been invited annually to cultural events organized by him: Altramarea, Argonauti nel Golfo degli Dei, Mythoslogos (in many of their editions).
In 2017 we performed together, interpreting the Orphic Hymn to the Sun and often Angelo Tonelli recorded his interpretations for my musical projects Les Jumeaux Discordants, AimA and lastly, Caverna delle Rose, where he interprets the last verses of the Orphic Hymn to the Moiras for the work “Elysian Chants”.
He wrote the main preface for my book of poems “Haiku Irregolari in Forma di Musica” published by Agorà and CO.
We also performed together at various events organized for Poetry and Discovery, the latest at the Naviglio Grande in Milan.
