Poetry's strength is unexpected. It always surprises us, probably because there is lesser and lesser of it around us. It overcomes geographic distance, generational features and language differences.
It drags us to a sublime level, since it moves into a space without reference points and crosses the boundaries of what we can see, hear think and imagine. But how it comes that we speak of poetry for a musical artifact?
Because Sabir Mateen and Silvia Bolognesi, in "Holidays in Siena", are poets, first of all. Far from a worn out romantic concept (inspiration, destiny...) they create sounds, mix, contrasts, silence spots, that show not only contemporary anxiety but also the joy of playing together.
