Festa Mobile were formed by the Boccuzzi brothers, coming from Monopoli. Working for RCA, they had the chance of playing with many important artist of the Italian pop music. Among the various experiences it's worth mentioning the Jacopone musical, with Gianni Morandi and Paola Pitagora, whose "rhythm background" was played by Festa Mobile. RCA also released their only album, "Diario Di Viaggio Della Festa Mobile", a fantasy concept album with large space given to keyboards and vocals a bit too low compared to the musical background. The music is for the most part pretty fast space prog rock, and very Italian sounding in a similar vein as PFM. Their guitarist offers some very tasty Fripp-influenced riffs and he does a good job balancing the quirky piano lines.

In this stylish and offbeat black comedy, Benito ( Jerry Calà) keeps a diary of his sexual fantasies and cravings. As a result of his on-again, off-again relationship with the beautiful and insatiable Luigia (Sabrina Ferilli), his thoughts along these lines have grown increasingly bizarre. For his own part, he is driven to pick up and bed women at almost every opportunity. As the fantasies recorded in his diary consume more and more of his life, and grow darker and darker, his ordinary waking life becomes flatter and duller, until he disappears altogether.

Abandoned at the age of two months and taken in by the Ospedale della Pietà, Chiara (or Chiaretta) rose – within that enclosed charitable institution in Venice – to become one of the leading European violinists of the middle of the 18th century. No stranger to such acclaim, himself, two and a half centuries later, Fabio Biondi, on his first release for Glossa, has devised a CD drawing on the personal diary of this remarkable musician who was taught by Antonio Vivaldi, and later became a virtuoso soloist on the violin, as well as the viola d’amore. The programme consists of concertos and sinfonias by composers who, like the prete rosso, taught at the Pietà: Porta, Porpora, Martinelli, Latilla, Perotti and Bernasconi are all musicians whose compositions charm and delight as much today as they did in the time of Chiara. Along with this inspired vision-in-sound of the 18th century musical world of the Ospedale comes a half-hour long DVD dramatisation; CD and DVD admirably reflect both the virtuosic skills demanded of the instrumental soloists of the day and the revolution in musical tastes (inside the Pietà as well as outside it), as the Baroque passed to Classicism via the galant style.
