(Chicago Popular) — – Welcome to the Chicago News. The subject of this news is Riccardo Cocciante: “I don’t feel Italian, luckily there is Draghi” – exclusive
here are the details.
The singer-songwriter is on the eve of his first concerts in Italy after ten years. It is told exclusively at Oggi on newsstands: “I would go to Sanremo as a guest but I don’t decide”. He praises the Maneskins and Mahmoods. But he’s not kind to his country
Riccardo Cocciante, on the eve of his first concerts in Italy for 10 years now, talks about himself in an interview with the weekly Oggi: «I have always tried to stay out of business trends and dynamics. I’ve only ever done the things I loved. At the time, the others went further ahead. But over time this paid off ». The songwriter and composer, then, confirms the uniqueness also in his lifestyle: «The artist must be an island. I don’t write for others, I do it for personal enjoyment and with the hope that the public will like it. I love the cage in which I compose ».
SANREMO AND SURROUNDINGS – Since next year he celebrates 50 years of career, Cocciante says again: «As a guest I am sure I would go to Sanremo. But I’m not the one who decides. The problem is always that the most sought after are those who are in fashion. I don’t expect anything ». On current Italian music he finds “interesting the Maneskin” and “the special, original voice of Mahmood”. And on Italy seen from the outside (he has lived in Ireland for 22 years) and from someone who considers “home” only the piano says: “Fortunately, Mario Draghi has arrived to put order … Politics must be done with nobility and conscience, in Italy I only see cockfights … He and President Mattarella are respected even outside Italy. And it is fundamental in this moment ».
