Goodbye Dolce Vita. La canzone è letteratura? Incontro con Dente



Goodbye Dolce Vita. La canzone è letteratura? Incontro con Dente

His birth name is Giuseppe Peveri, but everybody knows him as Dente, the nickname given to him by his uncle when he was thirteen. Today Dente is one of the most appreciated Italian singer-songwriters. His last album – Canzoni per metà, in which he blends his traditional pop language with the deside step back from musical clichés – was released last October.

Dente is the last of a series of Italian singers, popstars and rockers who also write books. After the short story featured in the anthology Cosa volete sentire – Compilation di racconti di cantautori italiani (2011), he published in 2015 the children’s book Favole per bambini molto stanchi.

Dente’s fairy tales “are a universe of curious and cheeky planets, refusing logic, playing with morals, upsetting physical and syntax rules”. Still, as it happens in everyday life, “his characters fall in love and hate, talk to each other but don’t understand, are fragile and a little bit cruel. Most of all, they laugh a lot by remaining very austere” (from the book description).

Dente (Fidenza, 1976) started his career as a guitarist until 2006, when he began his solo career with the album Anice in bocca. Following albums have been Non c'è due senza te (2007), L'amore non è bello (2009), winner of the award “Premio Italiano della Musica Indipendente” for the best album, Io tra di noi (2011) and Almanacco del giorno prima (2014). His musical style is compared by critics to the one of artists such as Lucio Battisti, Luigi Tenco, Bugo, Cesare Cremonini, Ivan Graziani, Rino Gaetano and Francesco De Gregori.
