Paolo Conte: via con me (It’s Wonderful)



Paolo Conte: via con me (It’s Wonderful)

Paolo Conte, one of Italy’s top-ranking artists, is also one of the most international and least portrayed due to his proverbial reserve and strict standards.

His music, like a beautiful film, has the power to tell stories and elicit emotions. Conte is one of the greatest singers in the province of the world – to quote his song lyrics “La provincia del mondo”, and has been compared by the New York Times to Tom Waits and Randy Newman.

Paolo Conte. Via con me (It’s wondeful) by Giorgio Verdelli, tells the story of an eclectic and, in some ways, mysterious character, over almost fifty years of history and not just about music. It is a sort of ideal itinerary, where words, verses and music interweave and take pictures of our imagination through this great artist’s songs, concerts and friends, as well as his thoughts and reflections. Verdelli draws on Conte’s immensely rich personal archive, from filmed footage of international tours to the many special moments that make up an absolutely unique career. The film explores the maze of his music – his songs – even those written for the most diverse artists (Adriano Celentano, Enzo Jannacci, Jane Birkin, Caterina Caselli and Bruno Lauzi, to name but a few), as well as entering the labyrinth of his passions (for jazz, puzzles, painting, the law, cinema). For the first time we will see Conte in his studio in Asti, drawing and talking about his music.
