The Italian tour of Vinicio Capossela, which is touching many places, many of which are far from the most crowded destinations of summer tourism. Probably a well-considered choice by the singer-songwriter, far from the concept of mainstream and “mass phenomena”, that he has decided to opt for more discreet locations in which to find an audience really interested in listening to his music. Vinicio Capossela has been active on the music scene for over thirty years and despite the many possibilities he had and the numerous sirens, he has never betrayed his identity and his musical base, continuing to be one of the most prominent exponents of music Italian author, so much so that he is one of the artists to have received the highest number of awards from the Tenco Club. Today, Thursday 25 and Saturday 27 August, Vinicio Capossela will be the protagonist on the stage of the Sponz Fest di Calitri, a festival that he himself conceived in his father’s hometown, in the upper Irpinia.
