Conversations with the poetry-singer of folly and dignity

Simone Cristicchi is a song-writer and performer whose ironic talent is the emblem of an artist that defies easy categorization. The defining feature of his artistic endeavour is to shed light on the "other side" of the life of individuals: he likes to sing the lives of (real or imaginary) persons, seeking to give voice to minorities, to the victims of total institutions, and to their torturers too; all those voices that are often ignored by the media because they are too difficult, too gruesome, to tell...

Along this conversation between two friends, the artist reveals his thoughts and the full range of his genius. Starting from the beginnings of his career, this literary journey outlines the trajectory of an ever-changing artist, always on the road, narrating the lives of "little people" and staging theatrical performances denouncing war and the arrogance of power and of its institutions.

Simone Cristicchi was born in 1977 in a densely populated working class neighbourhood in Rome. He is one of the most popular young Italian singer and song writer, highly appreciated both by the public and the critics. He previously published Un cantastorie tra i Matti (Mondadori, 2007).

Massimo Bocchia (1965) works as a creative consultant, and web design consultant. He has designed, and is the the webmaster of, the official blog of Cristicchi.

The Pop Singer, The Young Man, The Maestro

This is a journey through memory leading the reader from yesterday through tomorrow. As Alda Merini writes in her poem dedicated to this truth-loving Artist, "Nostra Signora dei Navigli", it is memory that sets us free.

It is a literary journey performed together with the artist from the beginning of his career as curly-haired bespectacled young man, his first theatrical performances as his own negative alias, the "evil" Rufus; the trajectory of an ever-changing artist, always on the road, together with the Santa Fiora miners' choir narrating the lives of "little people" and staging theatrical performances denouncing war and the arrogance of power and of its institutions.

With an appendix of photographs by the author.

The volume also includes a bonus cd, Uncivil Monologues (26'27"); a collection of 11 original stories of madmen and miners, of frostbitten soldiers and migrants whose origins and destinations change over time.
