Milan, the 1960s, a March afternoon in a suburban street, council houses and small factories. A boy - little more than a child - walks holding a guitar he has just received as a present for his birthday. A man stops him and asks, "But can you play it?". From there begins the journey of Giorgio 'Fico' Piazza - bass player but not only - through music: I Quelli, Demetrio Stratos, PFM, records recorded with Lucio Battisti and many others.
This show recounts - more with sounds than words - the stories and songs of those years, the 1960s and 1970s, the characters and encounters linked to that world. And how some guys invented Italian progressive rock.
