IL QUADRO DI TROISI - IL QUADRO DI TROISI
Debut album from the new Donato Dozzy & Eva Geist project!
IL QUADRO DI TROISI finds Dozzy collaborating with fellow Italian artist Eva Geist. The ten-track outing was first conceived in October 2018 but was finalised only in 2020 during the lockdown period – thanks to an intense correspondence between the two artists. The title derives from their shared passion for the famous actor and cabaret artist of San Giorgio a Cremano and from an anecdote told by Carlo Verdone about an alleged painting by Troisi himself.

“For the first time the Roman DJ and producer confronts the Italian songwriting tradition, citing among the main references Alice (Geist’s favorite artist) and Franco Battiato , the Matia Bazar and the post-Mogol Battisti . The best of 80s Italian pop avant-garde inspired a synth-pop vision that fits perfectly with Geist’s moody and visionary voice and lyrics.”
The release also brings together Raster and the Milan-based festival Terraforma - the first of its kind with a purely Italian topic at its centre. More info and preview, here.
