“It’s always good news when a fingerstyle guitarist from our country is committed to making a contribution to the construction of an ‘Italian way’ to the contemporary language of acoustic guitar. Most of Paolo’s guitar arrangements come from the adaptation of musical transcriptions contained in a milestone of studies on the music of oral tradition of Sicily, the Corpus of Sicilian folk music by Alberto Favara.

This choice is a clear merit point for Paolo Capizzi and gives his work an important added value. Travel in Sicily, with its arrangements and its technical and stylistic notes, will offer valuable stimuli to acoustic guitarists and encourage further study and expansion to other Italian regions of the knowledge of our popular musical traditions “(Andrea Carpi)
