Lyon – “Caro Lucio ti scrivo”, at the Italian Cultural Institute

Five years after the passing of Lucio Dalla,  Italy’s consular diplomatic network continues to pay homage to one of the Country’s most important songwriters of all times. On 11 September, the Italian Cultural Institute of Lyon (Goethe Loft, 18 rue François Dauphin; 7pm) will screen “Caro Lucio ti scrivo”, a film by Riccardo Marchesini (original version in Italian [the title is a play on words of one of his most famous songs, translator’s note]), based on the show by Cristiano Governa, with songs by Lucio Dalla and the voices of Ambra Angiolini, Alessandro Benvenuti, Piera degli Esposti, Neri Marcorè, Ottavia Piccolo, Andrea Roncato, Grazia Verasani. Director Marchesini will attend the screening. The “Caro Lucio ti scrivo” docu-fiction was produced with the aim of changing the perspective, the angle taken on the narration of a legend like Lucio Dalla. In fact, the Bologna-born singer-songwriter’s life is not told through recorded interviews or contributions by friends, collaborators and colleagues, but rather as a journey in a continuously precarious balance between fantasy and reality.
