Arena di Verona: the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of June, with played three hours and 30 minutes live shows with Renato Zero. After three weeks of tough rehearsals, it has been great performing in this beautiful venue, while listening to the feedback of 18.000 cheering “sorcini”.

I was the musical director pre-prod arranger, keyboard and accordion player. The other musicians were Lele Melotti on drums, Lorenzo Poli on bass, Stefano Senesi on piano, Bruno Giordana on saxophones and keys, Giorgio Cocilovo and Bicio Leo on guitars and Rosario Iermano on percussions.

Icing on the cake, a 50 pieces symphonic orchestra conducted by Renato Serio.
