Un viaggio is a story about four friends, four artists who come together at the beginning of a new musical voyage. This new musical path means crossing their so far artistic range from different musical stories, already accomplished, and eager to reach something new and very exciting. There are no secrets, there is only a fourth musical dimension which has been discovered and after which nothing will stay the same!
Un viaggio ist die Geschichte von vier Musikern, vier Künstlern, die sich am Beginn einer neuen musikalischen Reise treffen. Dieser musikalische Weg stellt eine Überschneidung ihrer bisherigen künstlerischen Tätigkeitsfelder in verschiedenen musikalischen Bereichen dar, und sie sind bereit für etwas Neues und sehr Aufregendes. Es gibt keine Geheimnisse, nur die vierte musikalische Dimension, nach der nichts mehr sein wird wie bisher.
