Romagna in fiore
Neri Marcorè

Exactly one year has passed since the catastrophic floods that struck Romagna between the 2nd and 17th of May, wreaking havoc in the vast Po Valley: after heavy rains, numerous rivers and streams burst their banks, submerging the patchwork of towns and villages, while the fragile Apennine hillsides were devastated by landslides and mudslides. Exactly one year after all this, Romagna in fiore is here. Eight shows, eight extraordinary concerts, held in some of the worst affected towns, to pay tribute to the spirit of resilience that characterises this land, and to the tenacity of its people, who have struggled and are still struggling to recover and start again. Many great artists have accepted to contribute to this solidarity project: a true “festival within the festival”, supportive, inclusive and environmentally friendly.
This event will provide an excellent opportunity for meeting and discussion: thousands of visitors from all over Italy are expected to attend and spend a few leisurely days together, immersed in the beauty of nature, enjoying music and poetry, warmly welcomed by the people of Romagna. Together, they will celebrate the beauty of a land that risks neglect, and enjoy the unfailing hospitality that has always characterised this area, even in critical times. Together, they will work towards a fresh start, in a gesture of sincere solidarity. With untiring confidence, we are already seeing this new beginning taking shape, despite the challenges and the mud.

Actor, comedian, impersonator, singer, TV presenter, Neri Marcoré works in the theatre, on radio, on television, mixing satire with art history, pop songs with the verses of Dante: an all-round showman who defies definition. He claims that this is «how he keeps from getting bored», but is also convinced that, in order to qualify as an “actor”, one must explore the most diverse dimensions. His relationship with music, especially Italian and world songs, is that of a chameleon: with his infallible intuition he plunders the repertoire and reinterprets it in his irresistible “setlists”. For us, he will do this with the freedom inspired by the old farmhouse of Ca’ del Vento, a few steps away from the extraordinary landscape of the Vena del Gesso Romagnola.
