Ogni viaggiatore che si rispetti tiene un diario di bordo. Raccontare è come viaggiare, e se non porti con te un po' dell'altro, i tuoi orizzonti saranno sempre ridotti a quello che hai creduto di vedere.


Antonello Messina



Musica






The Italian accordionist, pianist and composer Antonello Messina is a dynamic presence in the new international jazz scene and has been so for several years. He has toured and recorded both alone and as a sideman, taking part in more than forty musical and theatrical productions, short movies and film music. In 2006 he records his album Aziyz with Dodicilune, featuring Fabrizio Bosso, Ettore Fioravanti and Luca Lo Bianco. His numerous performances across Europe as well as his collaborations are greatly praised by both the public and the critics.
 Among his international collaborations are yearly tours with Paul McCandless (Scala Nobile project) and, recently, his participation in the recording of the new album by the Israeli percussionist Zohar Fresco, concurrent with a musical tour in Israel. His theatrical collaborations include Stadttheater in Bern and Maag Halle in Zurich. Antonello has recently released his new album, Polyfemo, featuring Umberto Fiorentino, John B. Arnold, Michael Rosen and Luca Pirozzi.
