It was inspired by “The Long Road of Sand”, a book by Pier Paolo Pasolini which recounts a similar journey undertaken by the writer in 1959. The chronicle of Testoni’s travels, accompanied by his voice and piano, is now at the center of a book, newly released by independent publisher La Nave di Teseo, called “L’avventura” (“The Adventure”).

Thirty-one. Sixteen. Sixty-one. Thirty-one for the days in the month of July. Sixteen for the number of artists from the Ponderosa team who will play live on tour throughout the course of this month. Sixty-one, for the number of concerts they will perform all around Italy. These are blessed numbers for live performers, who were hit hard by the lockdown and color-coded restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic.
