    Brief synopsis

    It was a world made of synthetic catchy sounds, not always correct English lyrics, electronic rhythms and selfmade video clips.

    Cybernetic melodies made of the dreams and hopes of young people from the countryside. Musicians capable of creating amazing pop, always on the thin line between trash and genius.

    It was the world of Italo Disco: born in Italy, boosted in Germany, it made the whole planet dance.
