Massimo Zamboni

Wild bestiary. An illustrated reading

Massimo Zamboni takes us on a journey to discover the creatures who are changing the nature of our country. In marshlands, along canals, coastlines, and lagoons, in forests or open fields, we will observe never-before-seen animals or returning species, composing a song that is meant to be an invitation to look at the world with wonder. Wonder is what leads the search, the desire for knowledge that doesn’t leave anything out. With these premises, the animal world will open before us, revealing shapes and places. An illustrated reading accompanied by a filmed exploration of Stefano Schiaparelli’s works and background music composed by Zamboni himself and Matteo Maragno.



Massimo Zamboni founded the group CCCP-Fedeli alla Linea in 1982 together with Giovanni Lindo Ferretti, performing the ‘pro-Soviet punk’ genre. In 1992, the CSI – Consorzio Suonatori Indipendenti, which reached the top of the record charts – and Consorzio Produttori Indipendenti were born, with dozens of albums produced. Since 2000, Zamboni has composed several albums as a soloist, the latest of which is La mia patria attuale. He has created many soundtracks for film and theatre and published several books for various publishing houses, including: L'eco di uno sparo (Einaudi, 2015), Anime galleggianti (La Nave di Teseo, 2016), Nessuna voce dentro (Einaudi, 2017), La trionferà (Einaudi, 2021), Bestiario selvatico (La Nave di Teseo, 2023). He contributes to the weekly supplement La Lettura.
