Tribute to famed Italian musician Lucio Dalla
By Stephanie Horsman - December 30, 2021
Eleven years after his death, the life of beloved Italian singer-songwriter Lucio Dalla is being celebrated by Dante Monaco in a tribute concert at the Théâtre des Variétés in Monaco.
For fans of musical legend Lucio Dalla, this will be a night to remember. A tribute concert entitled Meeting with Lucio Dalla, is being organised by Dante Monaco at the Théâtre des Variétés celebrating the works of the talented star whose life was sadly cut short by a fatal heart attack eleven years ago, just three days shy of his 69th birthday.
Leading the concert will be journalist and music critic Ernesto Assante, and one of the most talented singers of the last generation, Roberta Giallo. They will speak to the audience of their personal meeting with the music legend, and aim to reconstruct his artistic and personal life whilst taking a closer look at the myths that have sprung up around him.
Joining them on stage will be violinist and conductor Valentino Corvino, who was also a great friend of the late musician.
His music-making style will be highlighted by singer Roberta Gallo, accompanied by Valentino, who will perform both Dallo’s songs as well as a selection of her works that were favourites of the late singer.
Bolognese-born Dallo debuted in 1964 as a solo artist with the release of a single Lei, non è per me (Her, not for me). His career was punctuated by experimentation and talent, with his tribute song Caruso, about singer Enrico Caruso, being covered by the likes of Julio Iglesias and Luciano Pavarotti, whose version sold over nine million copies.
Dallo was known for having a jovial spirit and a common man’s touch that endeared him to his fans. He knew how to investigate the future with prophetic texts and create songs that take their gaze further, become an essential signal in the search for life and for poetry.
Tickets for the event are €20. Space is limited and it is advised to reserve in advance, by 16th January. For info and places, contact Dante at firstname.lastname@example.org or on +377 97708947 and +33 6 40 62 29 53.
Mask wearing and health pass, or PCR or antigen test less than 24 hours old are required to attend.
The Monte-Carlo Television Festival has put out a call for film and TV entries for the Golden Nymph Awards in June.

Celebrated fashion and jazz photographer Marco Glaviano launched his exhibition and book “Glaviano 50” with Cindy Crawford Monday evening at the Monaco Modern Art Gallery.
A decked-out crowd, which included Pierre Casiraghi, son of HSH Princess Caroline, and his stunning wife Beatrice Borromeo, sipped champagne outside the gallery between the parked Lamborghinis and the black and white shots of Cindy Crawford that adorned the window fronts.
Ms Crawford, divine in a spectacular bronze sequinned dress (“I didn’t realise how warm it was here”), was incredibly gracious with her time, posing with an endless queue of attendees wanting a selfie with one of the world’s most beautiful women. She even indulged the Editor of Monaco Life, a Canadian, in a conversation about the Muskokas in Ontario, where the supermodel owns a cottage and vacations with her family every summer.
The 50-year retrospective of Mr Glaviano, who worked with the late John Casablancas and Patrick Demarchelier to jumpstart the careers of models like Cindy Crawford, runs until October 2 before heading to St Barth in January 2017, and includes 25 black and white images and two collectors portfolio each with a set of 12 images, the Cindy Kiss photographs on paper with diamond dust crystal (€15,000) and The Supermodels (€20,000).
The Italian artists is celebrating this landmark in his career with “Glaviano 50”, a 30 x40 cm collector’s book art edition covering 5 decades of his career, said to be his final. The 362-page clothbound limited edition book, which includes never before seen photographs, has been printed with four different covers, each with only 50 numbered copies published, and priced at €3,000.
The opening was organised by Nathalie Clifford of Space SBH. Monaco Modern Art Gallery is open Monday to Friday, 10 am to 6:30 pm.
