Il Castello di Atlante was formed in 1974 with Paolo Ferrarotti on drums, Aldo Bergamini, on guitars, Massimo Di Lauro, on violin and Dino Fiore on bass. Roberto Giordano on keyboards joined the band in 1982. (Paolo, Aldo, Roberto are lead singers as well) and it's quite inique the fact that IL CASTELLO has today has THE ORIGINAL LINE-UP!!, so the 70's sound and approach is more thank ever in the music of the band. The band has been approaching the tunes as they were real books, each one with its own world, linked to each other by the reader's intention.
"The reader" listens and feels the music that's on the album, while he's reading the books.
He's imagining the music in the same way a reader imagine the scene that's suggesting the book he's reading.
Like "Pictures at an exhibition" we find a main theme that portraits the "Promenade" of the reader, while he's looking for the next book. This is the seventh album recorded by Il Castello di Atlante. A great come back on the prog rock scene after the good acoustic CD a couple of years ago.
