Maramao Matteo Ferrari
Singer and actor Matteo Ferrari’s debut album, Maramao, seduces the listener with a bouquet of beautiful melodies from Italy’s golden age of popular song. Ferrari’s expressive voice and dramatic skill infuse these canzonette (“simple songs”) written between the world wars with a joy, romance and wit that transcend language, and the lush arrangements heighten the mood to intoxicating levels. No matter the listener’s grasp of Italian, Maramao is captivating entertainment and a thrilling exploration of a bygone era by one of Italy’s great new voices.
