«'A vita è suonno»

 Pasquale Porciello Album Launch


Thursday 26 May 2022

Doors open at 8:30 PM

Concert starts at 9:00 PM


«Life is a dream» is an original concept-album written entirely in the Neapolitan language and recorded in Beirut.

The central idea is the process of identification and achievement of the Self and takes its cue from the initiatory work of Calderón de la Barca, from which it also takes its title. The work questions dogmatic positivism, the cult of technique, a self-referential rationalism unaware of its limit.

A journey in search of oneself and the discovery of the world, which tells of the fundamental feelings and relationships of existence: the fear of taking the wrong path, the fragmentation, the false friendship, the misunderstood love, the separation, the profound forgiveness of oneself and the other. And then again: the night and the rebirth, and finally the encounter with the soul.

The recordings were made live in the studio with all the musicians, with the intention of bringing back a musical moment not definitive but natural, a music while it is happening and not artificially constructed.


Paʃ is a grammar mistake, an exception to the rule. The «ʃ» borrowed from the phonetic alphabet stands for the Neapolitan pronunciation of the «s» of the name Pasquale.


The project «'A vita è suonno» is realized in collaboration and with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute in Beirut
