Beppe Gambetta is a musician and ambassador of art, who, for more than four decades, continues to amaze us with the uniqueness and originality of his projects born on both sides of the Atlantic. He is an acoustic guitarist, songwriter, producer, and educator, and his art is fueled, above all, by the curiosity that springs from encounters, travel, and research. He has brought back forgotten artists, popularized and reinvented folk guitar techniques, produced unforgettable shows and much original music for which he is loved and respected on the international scene.

The concert has the same title of Beppe Gambetta's recent book where the main question is: “Can being together in the beauty of music, good humor, and great food be the key to a better world? “ Beppe Gambetta tries to answer to this question during his concert, by reliving the encounters and "declarations of love" that have marked his career as an independent artist. These are declarations of love for music, songs, acoustic guitar, travels, and also for the warmth of the audience, the Founding Fathers of the art, the music communities that you can find at festivals and jam sessions, for his hometown Genoa and also for the smell of the “sauté” of onion, porcini, parsley and pepper! A musical path for togetherness based on a unique guitar style that Beppe brings to the audience with lightness and sincerity.
