the first European festival on creativity

2021 Programme

Event #11

Malika Ayane, Matteo Nucci

I start again from here

What is the origin of a song that is destined to enter the memory, to vibrate in the body, to mark a period until it takes on a life of its own? Malika Ayane, an extraordinary musician and songwriter, takes us on a journey to the source of inspiration by talking to the writer and essayist Matteo Nucci and singing some of her songs.
