At his 24 years, he isn’t using the cellphone, social media, he even checks his email very rarely, and he does it just to find out the schedule of his concerts… Are you intrigued already? You might say that “Nowadays young people like this don’t exist”.
But this isn’t true. Let me introduce to you, Luca Natali Stradivari. Yes, Stradivari. Luca is the last descendant of the greatest violin maker of all times, Antonio Stradivari. But, unlike his great ancestor, Luca isn’t a violin maker, he is a classical music composer. And of course, he dreams that his music one day will be played on the instruments made by his great-great-grandfather.
Luca says that he is already used to the questions about “When will he finally get married?”. Being sincere, we wanted to address the same question as well, because he recites Yesenin’s and Mayakovsky’s poems in such a way that he can melt the heart of every woman. But he says that marriage isn’t now at the top of his list. Luca dedicates all his time to art, he performs very often in England, Japan, Spain, and sometimes he delights Cremona with his music – the city in which he was born and raised.
But what about Luca’s vision about music? He believes that it is the main language that is clear and understandable for everybody without any exceptions. Although Luca is a native Italian, he doesn’t love fashion at all, however, while taking a look at his style you can clearly understand that fashion loves him.
I and Olga have interrogated the young man about his favorite places in Italy. About the places that everybody should visit, in his opinion. He didn’t mention Rome, Florence, and Milan. For a long time and with big love in his voice, Luca was telling us about a medieval city near Cremona, called Castell’Arquato. From the hill on which is situated this city, opens a beautiful view on Arda’s valley. This is the city that inspires the young musician. He calls the main square of the city that is situated right in front of Pretoria Castel his own facebook because he admires and looks at it for hours and notices new and new details every time.
Through his stories, he has totally convinced me and Olia to visit this magical city that is the land of inspiration…
