The day after, in the Arena you change of clothes to wear the ones for music that counts. Sunday will be Peter Gabriel, genious founder of Genesis brilliant and versatile musician, foundered on stage to present his latest work, "Scratch My Back," and his greatest hits accompanied by a full orchestra but without guitar and without battery, almost three hours of great music (20 hours, www.eventiverona.it info). "Scratch My Back", released in February, is the first in a series of exchanges between Peter Gabriel and other artists who reinterpret each other with their songs. The album consists of twelve songs recorded using only orchestral instruments and voice. The songs range from the romantic atmosphere of the album "Power Of The Heart" by Lou Reed "Mirrorball" Elbow to the epic arrangement of "My Body Is A Cage" The Arcade Fire.
