Peppe Voltarelli's concert is a show of music and words that, starting from the first records released in the 1990s, recounts the artistic trajectory of a quest that moves between punk tarantella and songwriting with forays into blues and song theater.Voltarelli, a migrant soul, traveler and ironic and sharp storyteller, describes a never tame, lyrical and dreamy south in which it is still worth believing in without reservation. The south of the world, the south of Italy, the southernmost south of the south. Voltarelli retraces the paths of his journey between Calabria, Germany, the United States, Argentina, Quebec and the Czech Republic in search of the song that unites peoples.
