Tv Sorrisi e Canzoni and Corriere della Sera present Dentro Faber an extraordinary homage to the poetry and music of Fabrizio De André, available at newsstands from 11 March, and coinciding with the opening of the exhibition Fabrizio De André a Milano.
Dentro Faber is a definitive collection that brings together 8 DVDs, full of previously unseen material, on the life, music, experiences and passions of one of the great artists of our age.
The initiative has been organised by the Fondazione De André, thanks to the availability of unseen footage provided by Rai Trade and with the collaboration Vincenzo Mollica.
Fabrizio De André’s story is told by means of a thematic journey. In fact, each DVD, in addition to the best of his songs presented in their entirety, features the places, the encounters and first-hand accounts that mix some of the key episodes of his public persona with the most significant moments of his private life.
L’amore, Gli ultimi, Le donne, L’uomo, il potere e la guerra, Genova e Mediterraneo, Il sacro, L’anarchia and Poesia in forma di canzone are the titles of the chapters through which an attempt has been made to capture the powerful flow De André’s lyricism.
Readers will be able to go deeper into his words, listening to live concert performances of the songs and learn about his personal life through interviews with some of his songwriter friends, from Ivano Fossati to Enzo Jannacci, and members of his family, Dori Ghezzi and many others.
Accompanying this voyage of discovery of his artistic and personal development is his son, Cristiano De André, the narrator of all of the DVDs.
Each issue of the collection comes with a booklet, introduced by the critic Aldo Grasso, containing images, writings and autographs by De André.
The first part of Dentro Faber will be available at newsstands from 11 March, at the price of €10.90 (including the DVD and booklet, magazine or newspaper excluded) along with a free binder to collect the entire series. The DVDs will be released weekly.
