“Almost two years after the start of the pandemic, our sector is still at the same point: we are at a standstill (removed a few, too few, situations with reduced capacities that obviously do not allow us to sustain events close to the old normality)”. Thus began the hard outburst published by the singer-songwriter Mahmood on social media, after having communicated yet another shift of his tour. “Today – wrote Mahmood – I find myself moving the tour dates for the third time; and like me, many of my colleagues will be forced to do so while others have already been forced”. And he added: “What differentiates this move from the previous ones is that, today, we have tools at our disposal that would allow us to play concerts safely: the green passes. I look outside Italy and see that it can be done, obviously when there is the will and the attention towards a sector, the solutions can be found “.” I feel a strong feeling of abandonment by the institutions. For their part, very often, artists are asked to expose themselves for the protection of personal rights , to raise awareness among our public towards issues that are debated at the political level. Now, however, we feel alone, not considered by a state whose most representatives think only of arguing on social media and continually creating adverse factions among people. Now The time has come to listen to us. It is really our turn to have our rights, those of artists, professionals and those of the public: we have the right to go back to doing our m foreigners and those who follow us have the right to return to fill their lives with art, culture and entertainment. We have the right to go back to life and regain possession of our passions. We have the right to be heard “, he concluded.
