Live for Orsolina28 Art Foundation

Paolo Conte

Paolo Conte returns to his homeland with a live performance on the Open Air stage of Orsolina28. This concert will be generously donated by Paolo Conte along with his artists in support of Orsolina28 Art Foundation. All proceeds will be entirely invested in the Foundation’s non-profit activities.

Paolo Conte was born in Asti. As a boy, he began cultivating what are still his passions today: American jazz and the figurative arts. He began writing songs in the wake of suggestions absorbed from life, cinema and literature. In the mid-1960s, songs written by him burst into the music charts, including ‘'La coppia più bella del mondo’', ‘’Azzurro'' (for Adriano Celentano), ‘'Insieme a te non ci sto più’' (for Caterina Caselli) and many others. From 1974 to 2014 he released a series of albums that consecrated him as an ambassador of Italian music in the world: ''Paolo Conte'', ''Paris Milonga'', ''Appunti di viaggio'', ''Concerti'', ''Aguaplano'', ''Paolo Conte live'', ''Parole d'amore scritte a macchina'', ''Novecento'', ''Tournée'', ''Una faccia in prestito'', ''Tournée 2'', ''Reveries'', ''Elegia'', ''Paolo Conte live Arena di Verona'', ''Psiche'', ''Nelson'', ''Gong-Oh'' and ''Snob''. In 2000, he produced ''Razmataz'', a multimedia work linked to the musical of the same name, set in 1920s Paris. In 2016 he released ‘'Amazing Game’', his first instrumental record. In the following year, he released ‘'Zazzarazàz - Uno Spettacolo D'arte Varia’', a project that brings together over 40 years of his career with the best of his works and reinterpretations by artists such as Roberto Benigni, Francesco De Gregori, Lucio Dalla and others. In 2018 he celebrated the 50th anniversary of ''Azzurro'' with a completely sold-out tour and a double album recorded at the Terme di Caracalla in Rome, ''Live in Caracalla''. In 2021, he releases ‘'Live at Venaria Reale’', a live album recorded at the prestigious Reggia di Venaria Reale, close to Turin. On 19 February 2023, the Maestro takes the stage at Milan's Teatro alla Scala. The concert sells out within hours of tickets going on sale, marking a historic moment for the theater, which for the first time ever hosts a living icon of singer-songwriter music with his own repertoire.
