The creation of those pieces led young artists to decide to totally believe in their abilities.

They left for Paris, with the intent to more easily reach the streets and squares of all Europe, driven by the only desire to play their instruments and share their music with as many people as possible.

TheGuappecartò immediately made themselves loved not only by the public they met, but also by critics and musicians who found in them a very high sense of stylistic freedom and a profound musical poetry.

Their album Rockamboles (April 2015), produced by Stefano Piro, has reached its third reprint and has been represented in 70 concerts throughout Italy. Acclaimed by critics, he was chosen as the record of the week by Radio Rai’s Fahrenheit program.
