Following his extraordinary performance in Viareggio at the Gaber Festival in 2005, the singer-songwriter Cesare Cremonini, interviewed by the journalist and music critic Marinella Venegoni, talks for the first time to Milanese audiences about the important role that Giorgio Gaber has played in his musical, cultural and artistic development. It will be an occasion to look back over an extraordinary career that has taken the Bologna-born artist to the heights of musical quality and cultural importance.
