1 December 2019, 18:00
Padiglione Visconti, via Tortona, 58
Patti Smith will perform in a concert where she will present her most famous songs for Prima Diffusa 2019, together with suggestions about opera and life dedicated to art and love. She will be accompanied on stage by her daughter Jesse Smith on the piano and bassist Tony Shanahan. A true icon of living rock, in her career of over forty years she went through punk becoming its icon, and analyzed the world in all its forms of art, through music, photography, poetry, novels, painting and sculpture, leaving an indelible mark in every expression. Singer-songwriter and poet, beloved, discussed, influential and idealist, like Tosca, Patti Smith is a true rock legend for all generations and, without a doubt, among the most influential artists of all time, but also a passionate opera fan since childhood.
