“Michelle Hunziker? Love ends, not the want for the one you like to be completely happy »- Corriere.it

from Walter Veltroni

The 70 million-disc singer talks about household, from her grandfather stornellatore to Michelle: “Once I invited her and Aurora to make the Ama video, she was completely happy: my music is an anthem to like with out imposed guidelines, with out respect”

Eros Ramazzotti is among the most beloved Italian singers on the planet. And in addition from us. He was at all times lateral, discreet, discreet. Now he comes out with a brand new album, which you’ll be able to take heed to the bachelor Or and can sing in live shows all around the world. The piece is accompanied by video through which they seem ex-wife Michelle Hunziker and your daughter Aurora.

Listening to the textual content, it appears to me that there are two themes: the rejection of verbal and psychological violence that seems within the media and a hymn to like lived in full freedom, with out guidelines written by anybody however one’s personal coronary heart. On this dialog he solutions these questions and talks about himself. We left his voice, with out interrupting it.

That black look of somebody who harbors a grudge

“At the moment, I’m impressed by the need of individuals to have a look at the whole lot with a black gaze, stuffed with distrust and rancor, stuffed with prejudices and judgments, usually unjustified. Each. Social media appears to be changing into the pageant of the damaging: I do not perceive why folks love to make use of it to not talk pleasure and thought, however hate and hate. Usually, on social media, human beings are attacked for his or her concepts or for what they’ve achieved or, merely, for who they’re. Generally I would prefer to see them within the face, the keyboard lions insulting who’s fats, skinny, tall, brief! I wish to examine if they’re good. I do not care a lot for us, who’re a part of the sensible world of media. I care for the woman who’s made enjoyable of, the kid who’s bullied and suffers from it like canine. Is it attainable that nobody can defend the weakest from this improvised and self-appointed courtroom, which points arbitrary sentences and may destroy the serenity of a human being?”

“The whole lot the identical? MISSING FOR NOTHING. EACH ONE IS A SON OF THE TOUGH HE MADE IN LIFE, OF HIS TALENT, OF THE DETERMINATION OF HIS CHARACTER. I SEE PEOPLE POINTED BY NOTHING THAT COMES, WITH THE SAME SPEED, IDOLATE AND FORGOTTEN”

«I do not like excessive simplifications and I do not like the whole lot being flat, that within the large cauldron, those that improvise as a musician and people who have studied composition for years are positioned on the identical degree. on the Conservatory. All the identical? I miss for nothing. Everyone seems to be a baby of the trouble he has made in life, of his expertise, of the dedication of his character. I see individuals who got here out of nowhere and are idolized and forgotten with the identical velocity.”

«I’M NOT JEALOUS OF THOSE WHO SUCCEED IN AN INSTANT, BUT I THINK IT’S UNFAIR. I’VE HAD TEN DOORS CLOSED IN MY FACE”

«An enormous digital stage the place someday you’re a star and the following day the one who cleans the bogs. Exactly as a result of this flattening, this concept that we’re all the identical, that neither the research nor the work we have now achieved is value something, ended up taking away all reference. I am not jealous of those that are immediate success, however I believe it is unfair. For them, who tomorrow will likely be returned to oblivion, and for all those that in life have achieved so much like this… ».

«LOVE CAN END, LOVE CAN’T. WHEN I READ ABOUT HUSBANDS KILLING COMPANIES OR PARENTS KILLING CHILDREN, I THINK WE REALLY LIVE IN A DESTROYED WORLD”

“Michelle? I wished to display one thing easy and delightful: {that a} love, nonetheless nice and deep it might be, can finish with out the love, sharing, the need for the opposite to be completely happy, disappearing. Once I invited Michelle to do the video with Aurora and with me, she was completely happy. My music is a hymn to like with no guidelines imposed, no codes to respect. Integral love, the one that doesn’t enable prejudices and boundaries. Once I examine husbands killing mates or fathers killing kids, I believe we actually do reside in an upside-down world, through which essentially the most lovely, clearest relationship, the one which, when it adjustments its nature, can flip into everlasting affection, can at as a substitute to turn into the annihilation of the opposite or a fragile and egocentric possession”.

«MY FATHER WAS A BUILDING PAINTER BUT HAD A PASSION FOR MUSIC. MUSIC IS HARMONY AND MAYBE THAT’S WHY HE TAUGHT ME TO RESPECT NATURE, OTHERS. THAT’S DNA”

My father was a constructing painter, however he had a ardour for music. Music is concord and possibly that is why he taught me to respect nature and others. That is the DNA. I put a variety of ringworm in mine, a really sturdy want to do it. I by no means thought that in life you possibly can do something, neither the bricklayer nor the singer, sitting in a chair ready for the solar to kiss you. We will need to have the need to do, to find, to reach. I had dozens of doorways closed in my face as a boy. I used to stroll round with my guitar and my songs and play them. Rca nearly kicked me out and, particularly in my hometown of Rome, I used to be handled very badly by the music trade. I got here to Milan, town the place I instantly felt welcomed. I, a baby from the outskirts of the capital, felt at house in Milan. Let me be clear: I struggled right here too. A producer as soon as instructed me, “Such as you, 200 sing, such as you, two thousand sing.” However I did not hand over.”

«MY FATHER HAD PARTICIPATED IN CANTAGIRO IN THE EARLY 60’S… ONCE HE ACCOMPANIED ME TO THE CATROCARO FESTIVAL: HE, GIGLIOLA CINQUETTI SAID THAT IF I DIDN’T SUCCEED I WOULD GO BACK TO SCHOOL; IT SEEMS LIKE A LITTLE THREAT TO ME”

It was Gigliola Cinquetti who requested the questions. He requested my father what would turn into of me if I did not make it. He replied calmly, “He is going again to high school.” It was a risk to me, but it surely was additionally a problem. All closed doorways didn’t discourage me. I fell and acquired up many occasions. Music is my life. With out her I’d not have existed. I bear in mind the enjoyment of the primary guitar, the scrausa, with which I performed the blues. In 1977 I attempted to go to the Conservatory, however even there I heard the sound of the lock closing. I went again to finding out as an accountant. However my head was at all times within the clouds of melodies and phrases. I used to be, and have remained, an individual of few phrases. I’d lock myself in my room with the guitar, the Revox tape recorder and the canine I adored.”

Ivano was beneath the affect of these substances that flooded Rome at the moment. The I at all times preserve his image on the desk and I nonetheless love him. Perhaps that is additionally why I’ve by no means touched a single joint. I really feel like I ought to at all times be in full management of the scenario.

At the moment I like Tommy Emmanuel, Australian guitarist, and, among the many younger, I really like Ultimo, Irama, Cesare Cremonini, in brief, those that say one thing with their music. I do not perceive entice, but it surely should be my downside. If I might do like Nathalie Cole, who managed to place the voice of her father Nat King Cole on one among her information, I’d undoubtedly select Pino Daniele. I liked him very a lot. We toured with him and Jovanotti in 1994thirty live shows. However Pino did not need to document something. A disgrace. it was lovely».

“I SOLD 70 MILLION RECORDS BUT TO ACHIEVE THIS RESULT, I MADE ABOUT TWO THOUSAND CONCERTS OUTSIDE ITALY…”

In the long run we discovered one in black and white, with these devilishly orientable antennas that appeared like they have been made on function to lose the sign: the extra you turned them, the extra fog it acquired.

Additionally as a result of now it appears to me that it’s so tough to handle feelings.

The chance is indifference, the one generated by mistrust. However indifference is the opposite facet of hate.
Additionally to fight these risks, I proceed to do my job. With the identical enthusiasm, the identical pleasure, the identical want as once I was a boy.
