The trio is my favourite form of musical workshop. My fellow performers and I begin from an understanding of and, when necessary, with the reconstruction and revitalization of the traditional culture of my homeland, Marche. In like manner we attempt to take this traditional culture, after its self-regeneration and provide it with additional strength by feeding on different musical and cultural stimuli that are frequently quite disparate. We walk along the past/present time axis of the territory, choosing the material we wish to work with: traditional songs and dances, my own compositions inspired by traditional music or music contained in manuscripts of the past, popular or copyrighted texts, myths, legends, and little-known historical events that took place in Marche. We then continue along an internal/external spatial axis to make arrangements and improvisations that depart from the traditional music of Marche and sometimes draw their inspiration from international sources.
