Area open project

A new live line-up combining the highest technical levels with a disruptive energy with which introduces the new album “100 Ghosts” and the iconic bands’ greatest hits (Cometa rossa, Luglio agosto settembre nero, Gioia e rivoluzione etc.). Along with the well-established collaboration with the star player drummer Giovanni Giorgi, the open project has been joined by the young talented bass player Caterina Crucitti and Claudia Tellini’s incredible voice already appreciated for her brilliant performances on Area’s classics. Area’s music is rarely covered by any artist, beacuse it’s challenging from a technical and emotional point of view.

In addition to the new compositions featured in the album, the repertoire is a journey between world and ethnic sounds (with very ancient tracks /pieces, whose notations are going thousands years back) experimentally reinterpreted according to Area’s typical background.

Fariselli, together with his extraordinary musicians, leads the audience on a journey through time between fascinating and engaging atmospheres, where exoticism meets the unprecedented.

Patrizio Fariselli – solo

After the experience of the album “Area, variazioni per pianoforte”, Patrizio Fariselli extends his solo repertoire integrating it with some of his most recent compositions. An amazing experience for those who have followed his career since the very beginning and for all music lovers.
