PEM! Words and Music in Monferrato
The 15th edition of the Piedmontese event of meetings, music and stories among the UNESCO hills, will run in September in San Salvatore, Valenza and Lu Cuccaro. The first guests announced confirm the vocation of the event to touch very different musical and cultural worlds. Motta, a leading exponent of the new rock scene, will present his book “Vivere la musica” published by il Saggiatore (scheduled for 1 September in San Salvatore), Enrico Ruggeri, cornerstone of the best Italian singer-songwriter music, author of memorable songs (13 September in Lu-Cuccaro), Tosca, gifted with a unique voice and whose singing career was relaunched by the last Sanremo festival (17 September in San Salvatore). Big names will also come from outside the musical world; these will include the poet and landscape scientist Franco Arminio, who will be the star of the traditional hill walk (on a date to be defined in San Salvatore). And again: an evening of music and song dedicated to local star Gildo Farinelli (on 24 September in Valenza) and other appointments which are being finalised and will be announced shortly, including the sites of each single evening event and the booking methods. “PeM! Parole e Musica in Monferrato” avails of the artistic direction of the journalist Enrico Deregibus, assisted by Riccardo Massola, who created the event in 2007. It will be the artistic director to interview the artists, who will reveal themselves through words as well as their songs.
