During the summer of 2003 I went on holiday completely alone for the first time.
I spent my time travelling by car around the central regions of Italy, from Emilia Romagna to Tuscany, than to Lazio and finally to Abruzzo, visiting very small villages.

I brought with me a microphone and a minidisc, and
- alone or with the people I met (family and friends) -
I recorded every kind of sound. That's what is usually called 'field recordings', with voices, occasional chants, 'street sounds' and more.

One year later, I went again to Laterina, one of the places
I had been to in 2003, and there, with my friend musician Davide Valecchi (Aal), we played guitar and other instruments, and recorded melodies that I then mixed with the field recordings from the year before.

The summer of 2003 was the hottest summer of the last century in Italy and most of Europe, and the disc
somehow reflects all of this, and that's why it’s titled
A Rainless Summer.

During that trip I met other musicians, such as
Giuseppe Verticchio (aka Nihm), Andrea Marutti (Never Known/Amon), who participated to the recordings.

I’m very grateful to all of them.
