An intimate, intense, enveloping concert. Marco Mengoni “Surprisingly” opened the Salone del Mobile in Milan, or rather the «Supersalone» an unpublished edition, which returns exceptionally in September after more than a year of absence due to the pandemic. And even Mengoni from “live”, in front of the public, had been missing for quite a while. He says so, finally surrounded by his musicians in the gardens of the Triennale, really excited to return to perform “live” after two years of silence.
“The world needs love but also needs to start over”, his words, “Being here tonight after two years of detention is very, very exciting.
I am happy to share this event with the musicians. I hope this can be a restart for all sectors after difficult days ». The ladder is precious: I really loved you, Protect yourself from me, Id rather go blind, The essential, But tonight and then the cover of What The World Needs Now Is Love. Mengoni repeats it several times, accompanied by piano, double bass, guitar, drums and four choirs, reiterating that this is precisely the moment to believe in it. Closing, a surprise within a surprise: Marco sings a piece at the request of the landlord, Stefano Boeri, bones The blue House, the one he wanted to dedicate to Frida Kahlo.
Marco resounds thus began the “supersalone” which from today opens to the public until 10 September. In a context where the design, l’art and theenvironmental impact are the key themes combined with sensitivity and awareness of the environmental emergency, thesound installation «Resonantrees performing Marco Mengoni» conceived and created by Sound Artist Federico Ortica with the voice of the singer-songwriter at the center.
Located inside the Bosco di Forestami, which marks the entrance path to the Supersalone at the Fiera Rho in Milan, the artistic project green will involve visitors in a unique experience of total immersion in Marco Mengoni’s sounds within an innovative natural sound landscape, a “resonant urban forest” made up of multiple essences, and in which it will be possible to interact both on a multisensory and emotional level with the sound source itself. Indeed, it is precisely the trees that – thanks to the application of special transducers that “resonate” the different plants – become generators of acoustic waves, making Mengoni’s voice and melodies resonate.
And all the trees in the forest that it includes Resonantrees performing Marco Mengoni at the end of the event they will be used for planting in the area of the Metropolitan City of Milan.
