Sicily is a very rich land in terms of music and culture. It’s a transitory land where cultures mix, so it’s easy to find excellencies among the singer-songwriters, jazz, folk, blues, classical music, electronic music, and music of any genre. There’s excitement in air. Sicily represents my ‘beautiful cursed cradle.'

I needed other things to stimulate me, to consult with labels, writers, and go to concerts that would never come to Sicily. I needed to broaden my horizons.

Milan has a special place in my heart, and it’s almost a second home for me, but Sicily will always be number one.

This is a real victory because talent shows can be dark forests. You need to make sure you don’t get used. You need to use these shows as showcases for our really fragile careers (and today it seems like these are the only channels you pass through) to reach the most people possible with your music.

I will finally get to meet the Italian-American organization that has made history in the USA and that continues to be committed to the promotion of the Italian culture across the world. Furthermore, NIAF is sponsoring my first entry into the United States, and I hope it’s a fruitful trip.
