Exclusive Polly and David talk in Rome, Friday Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Wednesday, 29 June 2016

Polly Samson - La GentilezzaThis coming Friday (July 1st) at 6:30p.m. the Italian city of Rome will host an exclusive event celebrating the union of music and literature, starring two significant authors: the writer and lyricist Polly Samson and her husband David Gilmour.

The couple are in Italy for two important events: the upcoming dates of David's ongoing Rattle That Lock world tour, and the official release of "La gentilezza", Polly Samson's novel published by Unorosso. Known as The Kindness in English, the core of the book is a tale of love and pain, and recounts how sorrow could create very deep rifts in a couple.

The event is being held in a glamorous villa situated along the ancient Appia Antica for a strictly selected audience. 120 people including journalists, literature bloggers and fans will attend a "duet" interview focused on the artistic and intellectual process that the couple followed to result in the music we know well now.

The event is being organised by Unorosso Publishing House, Satellite Libri and Romasecretstore, with the cooperation of The Lunatics Cultural Association, a bunch of Italian Floyd experts. The book itself can be ordered through this direct link at Amazon.it (Italy).
