The “Superheroes” show opens the Sustainable Sounds & Flavours Circular Festival

The project was presented in the Tuscany Region on the afternoon of 16 May
promoted by Luci Aps, Comunità Crisalide, Rockland Music School, on the initiative and support of Fondazione Etica.

Next May 27th at 6pm, at the ex-Enaoli, in Rispescia (GR), on the stage of Luci nel Parco, a group of teenagers from Crisalide, a Therapeutic Community of Magliano, together with some of their classmates from the lower secondary school, will perform a show of music, words and dance.

The initiative is conceived by the Social Promotion Association Luoghi Comuni a Impatto Sociale (LU.C.I.), created by Fondazione Etica to gather all the 17 promoters of the innovative social impact project "Luci nel Parco". Inside the Maremma nature park, every year, starting in May and throughout the summer, a music festival is organized with the presence of local artists.
The added value of these live shows, in addition to the opportunity of enjoying good music in an exceptional naturalistic context, during an aperitif or after dinner, is represented by the fact that the artists undertake to donate at least two hours of their time, in the following months, to teach music for free to kids who, otherwise, would hardly be able to approach this type of art.
And this year, after a preview date on the evening of 19 May, it will be the "Superheroes" event to inaugurate the opening of the review entitled "Circular Festival - Sustainable Sounds & Flavours".

"Superheroes" comes after a journey that began in January, when, with the support and under the artistic direction of Davide Braglia and Paolo Mari of the Rockland Music School, the first meeting with the kids of the aforementioned Crisalide Community was held. With each one we tried to understand potential and desires, sometimes unknown to the kids themselves, identifying the possible roles of each in the show to build. From there, a cycle of fortnightly appointments was initiated, during which the "young artists" approached a musical instrument, demonstrated their singing and dancing skills, experimented with technical instrumentation, up to perfecting a real show, which will be presented to the public at the end of the month.
The song chosen for this debut is "Superheroes" by Mr. Rain, a success of the last Sanremo Festival, as the text highlights the importance of asking for help in times of difficulty: having the courage to reach out is a heroic act. A theme, therefore, of great importance especially for girls and boys who are facing the stage of adolescence, and sometimes painful personal stories.

The project, supported by all the promoters of Luci Aps, takes place under the patronage of the Tuscany Region, the Municipality of Grosseto and the Municipality of Follonica; it also received the contribution of Confindustria Toscana Sud, Nuova Solmine SpA, FAM Group Snc and Altobelli Hotel Supplies.
