ORNELLA VANONI “Revolutionary Calm” feat. SAMUELE BERSANI (Watch the video)

Music news

The official video clip is online on YouTube Revolutionary Calm with Samuele Bersani the new single by Ornella Vanoni.

A set with a minimal concept is the setting for Ornella Vanoni and Samuele Bersani who, through delicate gestures and looks, interpret the song with intensity and emotional connection.

Last winter I came across the music of Marisa Monte, a Brazilian artist who wrote a wonderful song called “Calma” and which I fell in love with.

So I shared music with Samuele Bersani, a dear friend of mine, a person I love very much and respect very much.

On the music of “Calma”, Samuele has rewritten a very different and current text, almost “perfect” for this difficult historical moment” – says Ornella Vanoni.

A work of visual art, directed by Giacomo Triglia, the video clip for Calma Rivoluzionaria explores the beauty and frenzy of everyday life through games of perspective and a creative combination of objects and colours, perfectly conveying the meaning of the song: “Never like in this angry present, prudence with respect to primordial instinct is necessary”, as stated by Samuele Bersani, author of the text and working on a new live project with Orchestra, starting in April 2024, which will see him protagonist in the most prestigious theaters of the main cities Italian.

“Revolutionary Calm” aims to be a visual ode to the quiet strength that resides in each of us, an invitation to explore the potential of rebellion without losing inner serenity, a world of contrasts and symbolism, where calm and rebellion merge into a visual ballet – says director Giacomo Triglia.



Calma Rivoluzionaria anticipates CALMA RIVOLUZIONARIA LIVE 2023, the new recording project by Ornella Vanoni, out from Friday 1 December, a musical journey through some of the great successes of one of the most important interpreters of Italian pop music – recorded live during the theater tour Le donne e la music Tour and accompanied by interludes taken from the theatrical writing Le donne e la musica – embellished by the two unpublished Calma Rivoluzionaria with Samuele Bersani and Camminando of which Pietro Cantarelli is the author and composer.
