In Rome until Saturday the three concerts that close the Italian portion of the Back to the Future tour. Appeal to sustainability and a progressive vote, “we vote who protects the environment, who leads us forward, not who drowns us or scares us” An Elisa in a state of grace led the Cavea of the Auditorium in Rome ‘Back to the future’ , in the first of the three Roman stages (repeated on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 September, sold out date) that close the Italian tranche of his new tour, with a lineup dedicated to a journey through the songs of the new album and the hits of his repertoire and progressive and sustainable messages. Without forgetting an appeal to “vote who protects the environment, who leads us forward and does not drown or frighten us”. The Roman audience paid a standing ovation on several occasions to the singer-songwriter and musician from Monfalcone: all standing after the poignant ‘Silent song’, written by Giovanni Caccano, which is part of the first volume of the live album “Back to th Future Live – Part .1 “released on September 16 (the other two volumes will be released in October and November); all standing up and moved after Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ that Elisa proposed in Jeff Buckley’s version, after a video by the Dalai Lama on the responsibility of everyone in the fate of the planet and after reminding that “each of us can make a difference on the sustainability with small daily gestures “; standing ovation even after the beloved ‘The obstacles of the heart’. Like the album that gives the tour its title, ‘Back to the Future / Back to the Future’, Elisa alternated her songs in English with those in Italian, bringing an infectious energy and rare vocal and musical qualities to the stage. Of course, there was no lack of ‘O maybe sei tu’, a song with which she came second in Sanremo 2022, also winning the Bigazzi award for best musical composition. All feet dancing under the stage in the last part of the concert to the tune of ‘No Hero’, ‘Fucking Believers’ and ‘Together’. With an ending that could only look to the future with ‘A modo tua’, the song that Ligabue wrote for Elisa: a song dedicated to the daughter of the rocker Linda but that the Liga wanted to be sung by an interpreter who was also a mother, like Elisa. And that she in Rome wanted to dedicate “to the little ones but also to the older ones”. by Antonella Nesi
