The concert pianist Patrizia Romanello compares the poetics of two composers of different generations, Philip Glass (1937) and Massimiliano Messieri (1964). The concert opens with one of the masterpieces in Glass's piano catalog, namely "Metamorphosis". The program continues in the Mediterranean area with some compositions by Massimiliano Messieri "Fantasia", "Fantasia No.2 - Traveling with Patrizia", "Haiku", a selection from "12 Haiku" that he dedicated to Patrizia Romanello herself. This concert is an inner journey of the mind among the memories of the unconscious, a return to the archaic with the musical knowledge of classical and contemporary history.
