They said of Fernet:
" I l theater song in its most linear, descriptive form, a sweet, emotional narrative, pitto rica. (..) A touching show, written by Tommaso Massimo, voice of the Petralana, with the director and playwright Federico Grazzini, who is also a CD just released for the Suburban by Guido Melis, a very good bass player and producer, for those who like to be moved by a beautiful song writer dressed in theater, an album and a piece to be discovered. "
"Reflect on the history of our country, on the poetry of a lost time, on the wounds left by historical events like the Second World War and do it without ever being banal or too emphatic.
The Petralana have succeeded, a Florentine training at the third recording work and already familiar with the concept of the concept (they did it also with their debut album, "Oggi Cadono Le Foglie"), which this time however has transformed the common thread that bind their songs into something really special. (...) A work of love and passion, which the Petralana have built in an absolutely independent way "
The People of the Blues
Fernet , a show that blends different expressive languages.
It's music, theater, video and animation.
It is the result of a collaboration, of the teamwork of the director Federico Grazzini, the theatrical author Manuela De Meo, the documentarist Tommaso Orbi and the video animator Linda Kelvink.
Born from the Petralana concept album of the same name, Fernet tells of a journey into a rural world that no longer exists. It is the story of Pietro, a peasant from the Langhe fleeing during the Second War World, freely inspired by the literary world of Fenoglio and Pavese. The musical matrix is that of the "class" Italian singer-songwriter, from De Andrè to De Gregori, with arrangements that recall the collaboration of the great Faber with PFM.
