What you'll do

You'll be welcomed in our own private terrace, surrounded by the quiet of Lunigiana's wood. We'll have a chat about Italian music and culture while drinking a glass of local wine and eating some cold cuts and cheese.
I'll tell you about the history of 'cantautori', the Italian singer-songwriters, performing some of their most beautiful songs on my guitar, using a Live Looping technique.
I'll introduce you to the work of Pino Daniele, Fabrizio De Andrè, Luigi Tenco, Gino Paoli, Edoardo Bennato, Vinicio Capossela...
You'll be given a booklet with all the lyrics with translations which will be also a keepsake of your experience.

To give you an example of the repertoire and the tecnique I'll be using, here's the link to my version of "Un giudice" by Fabrizio De André:

My name is Fabio D'Andrea, I'm a professional musician and singer/songwriter.
In 2008, together with my wife Silvia, I co-founded CANZONIsuMISURA, the Italian tailored-songs' website through which I've written, performed and produced thousands of songs for people who want to exchange music as a unique gift for special occasions.
Beside my studio work, I've been performing live as a multi-instrumentalist since the late 90's. As much as I love producing songs, for me there's nothing more exciting than performing live and connecting with the audience, in the moment!

Serata piacevolissima accolti da Silvia e Fabio nel loro bel terrazzo tra le colline. Fabio musicista appassionato e competente, ci ha accompagnato in un piccolo giro nella memoria con un repertorio musicale che ripercorre i cantautori che tanto amiamo in una chiave personale ed unica. Silvia, ottima padrona di casa , ci ha accolto con semplicità e buon gusto facendoci sentire subito a nostro agio. Persone deliziose che lasciano trasparire la grande passione per ciò che fanno. Un grande grazie sperando di rivedervi ❤️

Sylvia and Fabio’s music experience highly exceeded my expectations! It was wonderful to sit down with them both and get to know them better on the first night of our stay. Fabio is so talented and his knowledge of Italian music, and all music for that matter, was impressive to say the least! If you have a chance to book this experience during your stay with them, I absolutely recommend it. You won’t regret it!

This was a wonderful experience! Silvia and Fabio shared music, food and wine, and a great welcome for our first night in Fornoli. Fabio, an accomplished musician, played guitar beautifully and sang for us for a couple of hours while taking the time to explain the meaning of each song along with a little insight into the Italian composer who wrote it. As a personal touch, we received a customized booklet that showed both the Italian lyrics and its English translation. Less than perfect weather brought this usual outdoor event indoors, but the weather did not dampen our spirits and the unplugged versions of the songs made for a more intimate experience. Silvia and Fabio were wonderful hosts! I would highly recommend this event for an evening of wonderful live Italian music and making new friends.

This is an absolutely outstanding experience! Highly recommend the experience! You'll spend the evening together with Silvia and Fabio at their wonderful place in the Italian countryside where you are provided with some delicious snacks and drinks. Fabio will take you on a stimulating trip through the history of Italian singer/songwriter tradition and will actually play the songs live in front of you which is magical! Fabio is an extremely talented singer (beautiful voice!!!) and guitar player and he has a lot of background knowledge about Italian music. We felt so welcome and connected to both of the hosts as well as to the beautiful and deep Italian music which still keeps resonating with us up until now. If you love authentic music and enjoy to connect to a place and people over music, this experience is a must-do! Thanks again, we are very grateful that we got to experience this evening with the two of you and would recommend it in a heartbeat!

This experience is simply a must. There is no finer introduction to the vast and fruitful world of Italian pop as well as a variety of music outside of the mainstream from Italy. Fabio and Silvia are exceptionally warm hosts and their passion for their culture and articulation of its history and importance is unrivalled. Immerse yourself and above all, enjoy. You will absolutely learn many new things and it’s impossible not to appreciate Fabio’s talent and dedication to great music and storytelling. An unmissable experience.
