Premio Tenco 2019 will host “Ma non c’era che il vento”, an exhibition by Marco Nereo ROTELLI designed and created specifically for the 43rd edition of the Rassegna della Canzone d’Autore 17-18-19 October held at the Forte di Santa Tecla in Sanremo and curated by Lorena Viale and Micaela Mancini.
Rotelli’s project is based on the idea of freedom, and consists of an exhibition of original works dedicated to words and music (from Luigi Tenco to Gianni Siviero) and of a light installation outside the fort, with the participation of Morgan, who will pay homage to Fernanda Pivano. A series of blue canvases, that Nanda Pivano loved so much, will also be on display at Sanremo Casino starting from 15 October.
Rotelli dedicates and summarises his participation with this sentence:
“To my friend, Pepi Morgia”
