Composer Paolo Buonvino works mostly on film score. He worked with Michele Placido, Paolo Virzì, Antonello Grimaldi, and Carlo Verdone. Born an raised in a rural town in Sicily, Buonvino worked with the late Franco Battiato and has always directed his research towards theatrical, evocative music – compositions that would capture and rapture the audience.
The Sicilian word çiatu, of fiato in Italian, comes from Latin flatus – breath, though in popular use, çiatu miu may mean ‘my breath’, ‘my soul’. Çiatu will be performed at Teatro alle Tese on September 22 in world premiere.
