Fabrizio Mammarella (Bear Funk, Tiny Sticks) _ dj set
Fabrizio Mammarella is without doubt one of the best known and most esteemed dj/disc producers abroad. Since Panorama was issued in 2004, his first Ep for the Bear Funk of Steve Kotey of the Chicken Lips and Ivan Smagghe of the Black Strobe placed him in the mixed compilation Fabric 23 of the historical club in London, Fabrizio has never stopped. From then on in fact his productions have been issued on labels such as DFA, Bear Funk, Tiny Sticks, Azuli, Super Soul, Brontosaurus and Rollerboys and he has played in the best clubs all over Europe. He is at present working on various projects, among which Telespazio, Clap Rules and Fliberto Marmalade.
His sound is an irresistible mix of disco, dub, electro and psychedelic proto-house.


Umberto Saba (Pizzico, Italo Deviance) _ dj set
Umberto Saba is one of the dj/producers of reference on the Florentine underground scene. His Loudtone project, founded together with David Love Calò, dj of the historical privé Morphine of the Cocoricò, blends electro acoustic experimentation and “dusty” disco rhythms. The Loudtone pieces came out on Kindisch, Mantra Vibes and Pizzico and entered the playlists of djs such as Nicola Guiducci, Claudio Coccoluto and Timo Maas.
Their latest project, Loudtone_edit, centres on the edits of Italian pieces of disco music and he has a recently-issued ep on Italo Deviance.


Live VJ-set “Architecture and Body” by Lucio Di Cicco
Live performance of the “Architecture and Body” project realised in 2009 within the “Urban Media Festival” of Cologne together with Maria Belen Perez Lamas, Joffrey Caron and Pauline Zornig and centred, as its name suggests, on the relations between the body and architecture.
“Our movement and our very physique, developed in the hive of the geometric urban fabric, are in part conditioned by the city’s structure, by its architecture. On the other hand, the movements of the masses create new spaces within the urban environment, new passages, new observation points, bringing life and movement to the architectural landscape itself.”
