Music with La Banda del Comitato

One of the main events of this edition is the concert by La Banda del Comitato, a band born in 2016 in the picturesque Umbrian countryside. The band offers a fusion of original pieces and reinterpretations of the folk, manouche and Italian song repertoire of the 1960s. This ‘liscio d’autore’ is distinguished by its iridescent, poetic and dreamy atmospheres, the fruit of lasting friendships and natural wines.


Special Guest: Alice Rohrwacher

On accordion and voice, together with Martina Sciucchino, will be Alice Rohrwacher. The famous Italian director and screenwriter, winner of the Best Screenplay award at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival for ‘Lazzaro Felice’ and nominated for the 2023 Oscars for the best short film ‘Le Pupille’, then returned to theatres with ‘La Chimera’, a film that was nominated for several David di Donatello awards.
