The clinging en/chant/ment, Patrizia Laquidara in a Videoportrait by Armando Bertollo, 29'

“L’Aderente in/canto” is a walk in the world of the singer-songwriter Patrizia Laquidara, much appreciated from critics, originally from Sicily but adopted by the Veneto region. Michele Monina speaks of her in this way: “ artist who would deserve being declared Unesco Heritage, just like the Arena of Verona or the Dolomites. Her ongoing musical, lexical, and scenic research is something to lets you astonished.“ Patrizia Laquidara is not so famous for the wide public, because she is seldom a guest of TV stages, but when this happened she did not go unnoticed: for example, search YouTube and find her exhibition in Destinazione Sanremo of 2003, where she interprets “Cu cu rru cu cù paloma” by Tòmas Mèndez and judge from yourself. In her only participation at the Festival of Sanremo she won the Mia Martini Prize, awarded from the critics, and the Alex Baroni Prize for the best interpretation. In 2011, she won the Targa Tenco with “Il Canto dell’Anguana” (Best album in dialect) and she was twice the finalist, with “Funambola” in 2007 and with “C’è qui qualcosa che ti riguarda” in 2019.
The live performances gathered in this video are exclusive documents that confirm we are facing an excellence of the Italian musical panorama. The movie allows us to discover the person behind and out of the scene, out of the performance and the profession; it takes us in the setting and in the landscape of her everyday life, while she takes care of her creativity and her relationships and meets herself, her own identity. But it is not strictly a documentary. Patrizia Laquidara remains mysterious and ever elusive. The feel is to be watching a dream. And after the vision one could ask who was dreaming: Patrizia Laquidara? Which Patrizia Laquidara: one, another, the other, or the other part of the other? Or the Director? And you can ask what the repeated apparitions of Cabiria, the famous feminine character created by the imagination of Federico Fellini: is it only a heartfelt tribute to the great Maestro, or also the intuition of a closeness, of a relationship, the acknowledgement of a guide spirit which attests the salvific power of music, of art, of poetry?
