Other readings

Roberto loves reading. Reading out loud and if possible in front of a mic.

Not all writings are suitable, neither he likes everything, but this is also part of his profession: giving soul and personality to a text, being able to give his own creative touch by simply interpreting. “In a world of people who like writing to leave an original sign of themselves, which sometimes results in an embarrassing triviality, I only prefer being someone who knows how to read well… even if it’s nonsense.”

Here you can find some readings and a personal comment of the performer… 

“Nautilus”

Luigi Roscigno (Salerno 1986)

“Echoes and whispers. Luigi knows the sea as well... and so do I.”

“Je connais des bateaux”

Jaques Brel (Schaerbeek 1929 – Bobigny 1978)

“Dedicated to all my friends virtual and real who share my passion for the blu and no lines on the horizons, but this poetry is as deep as ourselves abyss"

“Dove nidifica il nibbio”

Luigi Roscigno (Salerno 1986)

“A mutual admiration arised almost by chance on internet. Luigi doesn't stop to commend my style while acting at the microphone, but I admit that I have a particular flair to do it with what comes from his hand out, because he writes words which, before coming out from my mouth, they had the power to flow through my veins. And this keeps on increasing our each other respect, perhaps.”

“In questa notte di luna tagliente”

Luigi Roscigno (Salerno 1986)

“My favourite of all, maybe. Maybe. Because choosing isn't always so easy.”

"La danza della vita"

Anna Maria Angelini Chiarvetto

"Anna Maria is another meets of mine, due to my theatre roaming. An all round artist, sharp brain provided and really capable to draw in few words a mental image so "vivid", as I had in front of me."

"Nene Poggi Sanguineti"

Antonetta Carrabs

"Fond of poetry, as other forms of show and enterntainment, Antonetta knows how to measure her words but meanwhile she can bring those words to create magnificent visions without limits"

“e se non basterà”

Giusy Nicosia

“I met a colleague surfing the net; unlike me, she also loves writing. If you want to know more you can find her here: Poetessascalza

Lots of her poems are meant for female interpreting, but I found one that….”

da “Castelli di Rabbia”

Alessandro Baricco (Torino 1958)

“I had a friend, a great friend, who suggested me passages to read. She was a person of rare intelligence and everytime she sent me a text I did my best to match up to her expectactions. Unfortunately I haven’t saved everything I produced for her throughout the years, because sometimes we don’t take into account certain eventualities.

Maddalena, forgive me if I mention you publicly “only” for this extract by Baricco; privately I’m fortunate to remember a lot more of you.”

“Cammino sotto le stelle lontane”

John Wieners (Milton 1934 - Boston 2002)

“He certainly isn’t the greatest author of the beat generation which is famous for Kerouak. This poem reincarnates all-time questions of mankind, but really I liked it because it makes me dream...”

“Testamento”

Kriton Athanasulis (Tripoli 1917 - Atene 1979)

“I discovered this poem (previously interpreted by famous actors like Vittorio Gassman) thanks to my “idol and master”: Fabrizio Casadio. He recorded it before and better than me. The day I felt I had reached the professional maturity that I have always kindly envied in colleagues, I wanted to make it mine. I dedicate it to Fabrizio, my guide , not only for my profession but an example of a man to take as a model.”

“Vorrei”

Francesco Guccini (Modena 1940)

“It’s not a poem! It’s a song! But it’s so beautiful, passionate, romantic and evocative…..it had to be mine! It originates as a dedication to a person I love, and for this reason it should be kept private; I have been told by lots of people that it’s one of my best achievements, so.…I couldn’t resist”

“Se”

Joseph Rudyard Kipling (Mumbai 1856 - 1936)

“It has been read so many times, that it has become even frayed.
What else I could say? I was a child when I watched Alberto Lupo (a famous italian actor) who was reading on tv. I love to play it... angry.”
