Måneskin makes us sentimental with the ballad ‘Trastevere’

Music news

Måneskin has published the last of the video clips that he had planned share after the release of the deluxe version of his album Rush (Are U Coming?). The band has closed a cycle with Trasteverea ballad about the price of fame in the music world.

“Nothing comes for free, but you can pay it with your heart if you got one”points out one of the fragments of the topic.

Taking refuge in the garage of a large building, Damiano David, Ethan Torschio and Thomas Raggi perform this acoustic song with no more accompaniment than two guitars. From here it is worth highlighting the absence of Victoria (the bassist) and the fact that the drummer has changed percussion for the six-string instrument. A detail that has greatly surprised fans of the Eurovision 2021 winners.

Surrounded by boxes with their sound and production equipment, and illuminated only by the low beams of a car, the three members of the band play the song as if it were a voice warm-up session. Now, they put everything on the table and let themselves be carried away by passion.

The video was directed by George Gallardo Kattah, produced by Continente Pictures and, like Valentine, The Driver and off my facehas been filmed in Mexico during the Maneskin tour that took place in 2023.

For many of their fans, this is one of the best compositions of the Italian group within their discography, which has already made a place for itself among other ballads such as Coraline, Return Home either Vent’anni.

Where does the term Trastevere come from?

Trastevere is one of the neighborhoods of Rome, the last of the thirteen ‘rioni’ into which the city was divided and which currently make up the center of the Italian capital.

In ancient times, it was considered one of the suburban areas, segregated, and particularly very humble, where the working class resided. Trastevere means, taking a look at the etymology, it comes from Latin trans Tiberis; that is, on the other side of the Tiber, the river that originates in the Apennines and bathes the regions of Umbria and Lazio, passing through Perugia and Rome.
