Music has the power to unite, always, arousing unique emotions. Even in this difficult period in which the aggregating experience of live concerts is taken away, his company refreshes us, gives positive energy in the days forced within the home.
Franco Zanetti, Rockol journalist, focused on the ascendant that music has on our life, even at the time of the virus, proposing the involvement of all the stars of Italian music in the recording of a choral cover ofMa il cielo è sempre più blu by Rino Gaetano. The duo Takagi & Ketra and Dardust immediately joined the project and together they are in charge of production. And to follow Pinaxa, for mixing.
The voices that then became available were many. And very well known. Of every generation. And in fact there were about fifty artists who finally found themselves singing to the notes of Rino’s masterpiece, from home, separated but never so close. Because the artists involved literally found themselves offering each their own voice to bounce from one router to another until they reached the goal together: to raise funds in favor of the Italian Red Cross.
In the video, promoted by Amazon with the support of the most important associations of the Italian music sector (AFI, FIMI and PMI) we recognize the homemade clips of Alessandra Amoroso, Annalisa, Arisa, Baby K, Claudio Baglioni, Benji & Fede, Loredana Bertè, Boomdabash, Carl Brave, Michele Bravi, Bugo, Luca Carboni, Simone Cristicchi, Gigi D’Alessio, Cristina D’Avena, Fred De Palma, Diodato, Dolcenera, Elodie, Emma, Fedez, Giusy Ferreri, Fabri Fibra, Fiorello, Francesco Gabbani, Irene Grandi, Il Volo, Izi, Paolo Jannacci, J-Ax, Emis Killa, Levante, Lo Stato Sociale, Fiorella Mannoia, Marracash, Marco Masini, Ermal Meta, Gianni Morandi, Fabrizio Moro, Nek, Noemi, Rita Pavone, Piero Pelù, Max Pezzali, Pinguini Tattici Nucleari, Pupo, Raf, Eros Ramazzotti, Francesco Renga, Samuel, Francesco Sarcina, Saturnino, Umberto Tozzi, Ornella Vanoni and Alessandro Gaetano.
For the occasion, the group renamed itself Italian All Stars for Life. The spirit of solidarity and cooperation emerges from the video in every detachment, in every smile. The artists recorded the clips showing themselves in a home, confidential, but also extravagant version. Morandi hoes in his hand in his garden for example, or Claudio Baglioni who behind a portrait of youth (from the time of Gaetano’s song) interprets the verse of the text that reads Chi canta Prévert, chi copia Baglioni that in the original censored version read Chi rompe i co*****i copiando Baglioni. And the cameo of Bugo who returns from the quarrels with Morgan on the stage of the Ariston sings the verses Chi vuole l’aumento, chi gioca a Sanremo, it’s really funny.
But many other goodies are sown in the video (do not miss the rap of Marra) and the attentive viewer can have fun catching them, vision after vision, listening after listening.
