Ardecore (the so-called manifesto - 2005) was born from the love for the popular roots of Roman culture, the ability to put heart and soul in this music relocate in a broader context than that in which it was relegated last glimpse of history. The peculiarities of its structure in the arrangements, as in the lyrics, make it unique, and the need to give new visibility is the spark that has "reignited the heart" to the sounds and stories of Rome.
CHIMERA (the so-called manifesto 2007) is the next evolutionary step, with an even broader workforce. An extraordinary original writing test and personal and unparalleled arrangement, in our country, for what concerns the reinterpretation and actualization of the Roman tradition. The production and writing of Giampaolo Felici work alongside the collaboration of Luca Venitucci (his arrangements of strings and woodwinds sections).
