14.04.2023 at Teatro Villoresi, Monza
Music-wise, should I mention which is my guilty pleasure, I only have one name: Fabio Concato.
I think much has to do with my deep attraction to grace, melodies, poetry and stories.
And to some lovely memories from my childhood life in Barletta when my father used to listen to Fabio Concato records with me on Sunday mornings.
Having grown up with a natural penchant for melodies (Burt Bacharach, Cole Porter, Paul McCartney among my biggest heroes) it was no surprise that I kept on feeling attached to the music of Fabio Concato throughout my teenage years and up until now, so when F gifted me tickets for his gig (in a small theatre!) he really made my day.
On a warm spring night (after many chilly days) and after a very quick Spontini’s pizza, we reached the Teatro Villoresi in the lovely city of Monza – the venue was an historical building renovated and opened since not long.
Theatre full, we took our seat amongst few hundreds of GenXers (good to feel young once in a while eh eh eh) and at 9pm the gig started.
Exactly like I had imagined, the setlist was a sentimental journey throughout Fabio Concato’s career and I was so happy to have listened to first time live all those great songs that, as my personal childhood soundtrack, still are so meaningful to me, still represent so many good memories.
