29 May 2018
I met an authentic artist, musician and author, who grew up loving art, listening to jazz and dreaming of Edith Piaf. Marianne Mirage, a former rebellious tomboy who didn't want to wear a skirt, is now a young woman with a magnetic charisma. Pale skin, freckles, feline eyes, black hair in an afro. When suddenly, she takes on the guitar and sings, she has a voice that thrills. Giovanna Gardelli - Marianne in honour of France, and Mirage "because that is what I am when I am on stage" - is an authentic Italian musical talent. It is no coincidence that she is under Caterina Caselli’s Sugar label. After composing the soundtrack for Paolo Genovese's film "The Place" (nominated for David di Donatello), Pupi Avati chose the single "Corri" (from the debut album "Quelli come me") for the "Il Fulgore di Dony" prime time TV series which he directed. This will be shown on Rai1 from 29 May. Marianne is working on her new record.
