Dalla Radio

“Vorrei entrare dentro i fili di una radio” (I’d like to get inside the wires of a radio) is the first line of one of the greatest songs by Lucio Dalla, entitled “Le Rondini” (The Swallows). This is one of the reasons why on 4 March 2016, the RAI Italian broadcasting company, together with RADIORAI, paid homage to Lucio Dalla with a programme (broadcast live on Radio Due, from the historic, prestigious Room A in Rome’s Via Asiago), which was devised and created by Michele Mondella, Giovanni Filippetto and Elastica. Artists, journalists, commentators, singers and actors talked about the artist Lucio Dalla and his songs. Dalla created music, lyrics, improvisation, talent, emotions, inspiration, heat and colour. Lucio’s songs and lyrics were interpreted by great artists from the fields of music, acting and journalism: Ron, Fiorella Mannoia, Peppe Servillo, Gaetano Curreri, Gigi D’Alessio, Paola Turci, Rocco Hunt, Federico Zampaglione, Marco Masini, Caparezza, Paolo Fresu, Fio Zanotti, Jimmy Villotti, Lina Sastri, Enrico Lo Verso, Aldo Cazzullo and Stefano Bartezzaghi.
The evening was presented by the journalist Vincenzo Mollica with the assistance of Massimo Cervelli.
