The craft of sharing music and words

Roberto Vecchioni has always shared many words with the public, as a singer-songwriter and, perhaps to even larger audiences, as a high school and university professor of Ancient Greek and Latin. In his dual roles of singer and educator, Vecchioni skilfully forges a captivating language that is at times tender, at times heart-rending, at times even biting. His two callings eventually, and naturally, intertwined, and he has dedicated many beautiful songs to his pupils, the youngest ones in particular. Italy’s most creative and intense singer-songwriter will use both his words and songs (accompanied on the guitar by Massimo Germini) to recount his zigzag course through music, language and teaching.
