I racconti delle nebbie is a Paolo Benvegnù & Nicholas Ciuferri’s project that was released in last March for Woodworm Label.
It is a real collection of musical narratives, published in book format plus audio CDs, which stems from the live experience that Benvegnù and Ciuferri shared during 2018, presenting in the form of narration music the original seed of “I Racconti delle Nebbie”.
The work contains nine chapters each formed by a Nicholas Ciuferry’s story, corresponding to a musical track composed by Paolo Benvegnù and introduced by an illustration by Alessio Avallone (Bonelli editor).
The stories haven’t a unique setting but they take place in different environments, dealing with various isses: from prostitution to the war, from the homosexual love to the schizophrenia, without neglecting lighter arguments caracterized by comic traits.
Introspection and the mismatch between perspectives are a strength of the stories, such as the narration, which is often in first person, leading the reader/listener directly inside the episodes and the locations described by the authors.
