I'm happy and proud to present the new CD of Le Strade del Cuore! Last Springtime in Genova, with Stefano Rocco and Fabio Accurso I recorded some precious frottole and tarantelle. Since this cd is my proper publication, it is only available at the concerts. Hope to meet you there, enjoy! Marco
Walking on the paths of the heart you meet different travellers, a multitude of feelings. Sometimes they cross the walk of the others and some other times it's a path of solitude. This programme wants to talk to our heart, following a shape of love. Music is the perfect partner.

New programme "IL LABIRINTO DI ISABELLA"
At the end of October, a brand new program was proposed for the first time at the Wittenberger Renaissance Musikfestival: "Il Labirinto di Isabella" - il "Cantar a liuto" at the court of Isabella d'Este. Songs, dances, poems for the soul.
The great aspiration of Isabella d'Este (1474-1539) marchesa of the small city-state of Mantua in northern Italy, is the attainment of ideal beauty, pursued in every object and with every means, and the exercise of virtue. Il Labirinto di Isabella is a programme in which also the dance makes a tribute to the figure of that woman who collected frottole and verses written by such poets as Jacopo Sannazaro, Francesco Petrarca and many others, and she had them set to music. The thoughts expressed in these songs often resound in the art and architecture of Isabella's apartments in the Ducal Palace in Mantua, bringing the perils of the outside world into the protected confinement of her studiolo and grottafor Isabella's thought and contemplation.
