Odio l'estate festival di Villa Carpegna
from 23 August to 8 September

The Villa Carpegna Festival "I hate the Summer" is an event that includes 3 different reviews:

Music it was: from 23 to 29 August - first edition
RomaJazz’s Cool: from 30 August to 6 September - sixth edition
Tarantella Festival: 7 and 8 September - first edition

In an overall view, the Festival boasts an international flair, ranging from original Italian and American jazz productions to songwriting and traditional popular music.

For the first time, the Municipality of Rome authorizes the location of the extraordinary Villa Carpegna, in particular of the large area adjacent to the main entrance, for an artistic and musical event.
Admission to concerts will be free for everyone, thus allowing total enjoyment by the public, integrating the spectacular event with a social and cultural information service. The Gino Paoli concert "A meeting in Jazz" will be an exception, for which an entrance ticket is provided.

An international review, therefore, with original projects and productions, which for years has been a characterizing element of the events promoted by the cultural association "The Captain's Treaty" organized in collaboration with the Saint Louis College of Music.
What identifies the Villa Carpegna Festival "I hate summer", characterizing it compared to a simple review, is precisely the presence of totally new projects, conceived and designed for the occasion; in this sense moves all the programming of ROMA JAZZ'S COOL www.jazzscool.it (from 30 August to 6 September) where each concert is unique, determined by the encounter between American and Italian artists, choices made by the artistic direction of the Festival, in poised between musical affinities and strong contrasts, including generational ones.

Following the natural inclination of Saint Louis, which has the institutional aim of training the new generations of musicians, the Festival offers many talented young artists, both with their own formations and on stage alongside the big names. Some examples, Aaron Goldberg's duo with the eighteen year old Alessandro Lanzoni, the group of Ben Allison and Fabrizio Bosso hosting the young pianist Claudio Filippini, the double bass player Gabriele Evangelista who will play with Roberto Gatto and Chris Potter, the quartet of Laura Lala and Sade Mangiaracina, a true pop-jazz revelation of last year that will open the concert by Gino Paoli, and the very young Atome Primitif, opening act of the concert by Simone Cristicchi. And many others.

Each evening includes three appointments
An aperitif in jazz with avant-garde artists and presentations of editorial and record news, meeting with authors
At 10.30 pm the second evening alternates new author proposals, jam sessions and an original review of auteur cinema with live soundtracks
