NADIA PIAVE & GINO PENGUE: “Vacanze Romane!” or What I Did On My Holidays @ Django

September 1, 2019 all-day


7pm doors, 8pm show

Songs and stories from boats, beaches, bars and a B&B or two… from the Cinque Terre to the Amalfi Coast, 2019

Canzoni, serenate, tarantelle, fiction by Gino Paoli, Ennio Morricone, Frescobaldi, di Capua, de Andre, Tony Renis, Mina, Radiotelevisione Italiana and more… …

It was a small bus rather than a vespa, and the 40 plus degree heatwave in Europe right now didn’t make for the most comfortable travel conditions. But for the whole of July the Piave-Benvenuti clan took on some of Italy’s coastal glories as well as all the major tourist centres (in the height of Italian summer – what were we thinking!) and endured endless midday reruns of Don Matteo and Mina docos… but they lived, deliciously, to tell the tale. Now Nadia wants to sing it for you – suddenly all those songs from Italian summers of long ago make sense.
