Considered one of the most original manifestations of the international crossover scene, the Soqquadro Italiano ensemble takes us on a journey encompassing not only high culture, but also popular 17th-century Italian music in the form of court melodies and street songs. Vincenzo Capezzuto, a talented and versatile artist, counter-tenor and dancer, plays the lead role.


The Soqquadro Italiano concert is organized in cooperation with the Italian Cultural Institute in Prague.

  1. Stradella, A. Piccinini, L. Rossi, G. C. Cortese, A. Falconieri,
