MAESTRO CONCERTATORE:

Paolo Buonvino

Paolo Buonvino

The Sicilian composer will lead the Orchestra Popolare on 22nd August in the big square of the ex Convento degli Agostiniani in Melpignano (LE).

Author of unforgettable soundtracks for the cinema movies, Buonvino  today is in Salento for the first meeting with the musicians.

This is a new challenge for the Foundation that aims to the mixture between popular and well-read language, the same that has brought Buonvino to compose successful hit like the recent Renaissance for Skin, soundtrack for the TV series “I Medici” and in the past “Eppure Sentire” sang by Elisa, “Baciami Ancora” for Jovanotti, “Tutto può succedere” with Giuliano Sangiorgi. 

Buonvino, rewarded at David di Donatello with the “Best musician in 2008” prize, for the movie “Caos Calmo”, will turn the square of Taranta into the biggest cinema where stories narrated through the traditional texts, will intertwine with the audience’s emotions in a feature film of exceptional scenes fostered by the energy of pizzica, soundtrack of the Apulia rebirth.
