Nito Ferri ( pseudonym of Antonio Fanelli ) was born in Italy (Bari, Puglia) in 1977; a closed child , perhaps a bit ‘ too much , it’s also quiet. However , like its peers, goes to school and helped his father and uncle at an electronics laboratory . Very lively alone with himself , he began to observe the nature that surrounds him always with a singular wonder. In adolescence the father , after the purchase of a washing machine receives a free portable keyboard Yamaha , the Yamaha Shs10 precisely . Nito think its games , friends , to the first computer but this strange keyboard, with the handle -style guitar , does not think at all, indeed, bury under a pile of games and plush. In fact, the keytar , keyboards ie shoulder , very much in vogue in the eighties , they have a strange shape to allow the musician to move freely on stage. But that did not know and especially Nito had never seen in his life a Keytar . A day like any other , along with his childhood friend Mike Silvestri, Nito is about to set up his computer ( the famous Commodore 64 ) to play all afternoon with a game on football. While the two are busy in their raids on the field , Mike realizes the keyboard, noticing tick off a shelf near the door. The sentence was immediate: ” Tony , why do not we light the deal? But what is it? ” And again” You never used ? ” And laughing ” produces sounds ? ” . Nito has decided to ” try to see if it works or if it illuminates a spy .” Well, a lamp lit , the ” Power” . Here are the first sounds come out of the clumsy fingers of Tony. As the weeks passed Nito becomes attached to every single sound and test any kind of rhythm Available keytar . No longer able to pull it out of the room , do not want to go out more with friends and also avoids Mike just to “invent” some new combination of sounds, or some strange combination of rhythms . Recall that at this time the boy has the opportunity to get their hands on so-called father’s names such as Peter Gabriel , Alan Parsons and Jean Michel Jarre say it all. Created the first harmonic turns personalized with strange names : The living room of Mr. Smith or black or even Urla The Curse mother , all linked by stairs sinister , dissonant chords and melodies nightmare . But why Nito decides to sound so gloomy and not ” harmonious ” as do his friends with the guitar for example? Let’s go back to the earlier remarks : the view of nature . Nito remains fascinated to see a storm, loves the thunder , identifies herself in the flinging lightning and begins to read stories about legends , vampires and magic. But the music ? Here , he responds to the world , of his passion bizarre , just recording new tunes. This gives rise to several tens and tens and keyboardist begins to divide them into small compilation in turn inserted into cassette tapes. Created the first works : Prayer for the Jews, Melody , Next Generation, always in imitation of the sacred cows that I mentioned a moment ago : Parsons , Gabriel . etc. . Hours and hours locked in his room , the little artist pulls over 32 cassettes ; also engravings of sounds , noises, home phone , the cat in the garden , crickets , neighbors chatting on the balcony . Puts on tape nightmares and dreams that you remember , places of city and countryside, street lamps that come to life and medieval castles with lots of scary ghosts . Harmonic turns from 1993 to 1997 , with names that are also found in today’s albums are: The Drawbridge , House of swans ( Invader to the gates ) , Guitar Goodbye ( Back Home ) , Carillon and many others. The passion is muted only occasionally and for short breaks as it can happen to any kid of his age : his girlfriend , karate , scooter , trips , disappointments , expectations, but after that it goes back to being more arrogant than ever . The keytar is not enough , it is uncomfortable , it is not on the table , cousins and friends laugh now those sounds so ” robotic ” . Nito decide to buy a real keyboard but his father found him a somewhat ‘ bigger and finally table (not a keytar ) . At that point, Tony ( let’s call it because it will find its own pseudonym of a telephone directory ! ) Decide, along with one of his cousins to choose a different name – Antonio Fanelli not fitted him at all – and to seek out a telephone directory or boobies pages yellow names “strange” . Along with this friend , we’ll call Henry , Tony opts for the surname ” Ferri ” because the ” F” happened to him as soon as he opened the list and ” Nito ” reversing the name Toni . Enthusiastic as ever , he began to write his name on all the new cassette, complimenting Henry and which would involve different compositions . Recall that Henry , a cousin by the mother , was the same age for the sharing of thoughts was practically perfect and without a comma. Agree on everything, even what and how many cookies to enjoy for breakfast the next day could extrapolate from the gimmick numerous musical works, from the most obscure as The Feast of the Baron (The flag of the Bat ) You turn to the more harmonious (A girl with silver hair). Nito and Henry are actively involved in many new jobs with their new KEYTEC M20 , a 5- octave keyboard , simple but functional. Here come The shadow of the lamppost (The revival of the witch ) , Watching you (Contemporary eyes), Together (Togheter for love). Beginning their first loves, first parties of 18 years and inevitably the first disappointment . The tracks start then to change his appearance and identity relate to more “normal” and contained . Nito invents agreements , Henry sings . All proceeds for several years to form a band with 2 other friends . I am not here to tell the tale of these four boys also because the role of Nito in this space-time is placed on the executive floor and interpretation of the musical dimension . Closed parenthesis with 3 different bands and after recording several songs recorded on CD in the Italian language , our author returns to its original dimension : buy a keyboard ( Technics M20) much more sophisticated and start and have fun with the fantasy : born rounds of The Princess room , The last word of the king , The chirping of robins , The second dawn and I saw Dracula. At that point Nito decides to go to the piano , he studied music theory and enrolled in music school , then buy an upright piano marked Shonberg and loosens his fingers fun also in jazz and improvisation . They spend so many years. Nito move for business reasons from Puglia to Piemonte and a passion for medieval music and rock. Change piano for transport reasons buying a digital piano Yamaha P85 with letters to 88 weighted keys and sustain pedal . At that point he decides to listen to all his songs and pick out a few more significant rielaborali and make them listen to a wider audience. The work begins with great enthusiasm and door production as a result the four albums on the site.
A narrator out of the order
As mentioned in section Keyboardist – keyboardist – Nito at a certain moment of his youth begin to read different stories, all centered on the theme of the fantastic. Devours stories about vampires , poems of Edgar Allan Poe, adventure books like Moby Dick and many texts focused on escapist fiction . He is then stimulated to the magical and esoteric vision of the world and its structures, particularly increases creativity . A rainy Monday comes across the term ” gnome “, search the encyclopedia ” because” at some point in human history appeared in our lives a little more and be ready to hide treasures . He likes a lot and will not stop to think about the fairies of nature.
The readings continue in depth and Nito combines terrifying to his compositions , the first verses of poetry dedicated to nature . When it is evening, he immerses himself in the stars , can not do pleasant ; cries because he can not reach Proxima Centauri ( four years distant star – light from the Earth), it suffers in the woods in which he goes can not find any elf but only mushrooms . In short, his head longer belongs to the imaginary world to the real one .
The first poem to participate in an essay contest entitled the shade of the pear tree ; here Nito describes in detail trees and leaves , enhancing the nature and polemic on the suffering that causes the lack of virtue among men in the world. He prefers almost ” laid to rest under a pear tree ” instead saddened to observe and share the behavior of his fellow men . The poem was published by Otherworld Publisher , along with thirteen other artists, as a result of Rebirth necklace ( for more details see the Portfolio section ) .
As you continue on with the compositions of his dark keyboard, Nito think the myth of vampires and werewolves ; reads the stories , investigates facts , buy Bram Stoker’s Dracula and begins to throw down several lines. This raises a mini story about the creatures of the night , entitled Gerald (just in imitation of the legendary Stephen King with his work “The game of Gerald .” The story takes part in the competition alloween 2006 at the Workshop Arts and arrives between Arezzo top three finalists in ex aequo.
Many sonnets are born dark and mysterious poems ; Nito not stop reading stories , popular beliefs , mythologies of northern Europe, as well as treatises on witchcraft manuals of magic and alchemy .
Unique is its metaphysical creation of an imaginary friend called Toesterly with which our boy enjoys talking and ape relatives worried. From the vision of this ” ghost friend ” was born the chord of “The last word of the king.” Nito , in fact, never ceases to connect the musical experience for literary naturally and spontaneously.
Also for Halloween contests ( held in the beautiful city of Arezzo ) , our narrator , a veteran of the glory and the congratulations of friends for the story of Gerald , invented another paper , this time shorter and better structured , more focused on the theme of ‘ darkness. Introducing ” The cap on the bench flooded .”
With this story, in all respects Horror, Nito took first place ranking in the competition Halloween 2007 – a story for the end of October , witchcraft , ghosts, vampires. All this always at the Bottega arts of Arezzo.
After a few years , just as he steps forward to better study the piano, his friend, Mike Silvestri ( already addressed in section Keyboardist – ) , joined him in writing a fairy tale centered on the theme of wine.
He is born The story of Mr. Lavallee , work of great syntactical accuracy for the most popular soft drink in the world : a fairy tale theme seen through the eyes of a grape and olive living in rural and remote sunniest in the Bel Paese . The story was in the “read in one gulp ” held in Venice and has won several awards from the jury despite not winning any awards .
In the section ” this fantastic ” find the product in two different languages: English and Italian . Of course, the technical terminology concerning the world of wine , makes the idea only in Italian language , for the rest it is a fairy tale elongated impact pleasant and immediate enjoyment . Just , pardon the pun, for true connoisseurs.
Still on the subject of vampires and creatures of the night – Nito it seems almost obsessed , even visiting cemeteries , crypts , observes the dates of ancient tombstones etc . born – an even more terrifying story of The cap on the bench flooded : the birth of The shadow of the lamppost.
A chilling story : a street that comes to life after midnight engulfing unsuspecting passers-by . Everything stems from the fact that our author begins to be haunted by a strange alley near his home , this small street , full of old street lamps , called vico Conte Stella, weighs heavily on the nights of our boy . He wakes up , dreams of witches, cats meow heard all night so left and Principia imagine that one of the oldest street lamps of the alley after midnight to come to life in some way , watching the passers-by and devoured instantly.
It is clear that the readings in background macabre have stimulated a vivid imagination and helped to increase the sensitivity and attention to detail humblest of nature and dream-like vision of reality.
The story from the life around harmonious awakening of the witch, the album A wooden stake for two silver bullets and always participates in Arezzo, for Halloween 2008 , this time winning the third place , paradoxically exceeded by his cousin and co- author of the lyrics , with the account Black Screams (joint first ) .
Interestingly, the inspiration of Henry for what concerns Black Scrams , comes from an old harmonic turn devised always Nito but never became a final song . A nod to the brief notes of this tour , however, is found in the central part of the last word of the king, where the music is suspended for one minute scarce.
In short, almost everything is interconnected between harmonic turns invented , written text , words that take shape in the music and vice versa.
Months went by and Nito Ferri throws on paper dozens of poems on themes fantastic, mysterious , horror, gothic and on the impossible . This will bring about a wide collection which will result in the book : Poems of the hearth, the mystery and whatnot. They spend many months and still many clouds .
At one point , after these different creative experiences , our author decides it’s time to write a real novel , not that he felt up to it but simply because it was strong in him the desire to write a larger story , with many characters, action-packed and always focused on the Middle Ages and the great epics .
Comes to life at this point the draft ” Lanthanum and the goal of the cusp ” then modified abbreviation The goal of the cusp.
Why this title, what does it mean ? Here are the first questions that friends and acquaintances have the narrator’s place simultaneously at Nito Ferri.
The goal is the goal that all of us may ask: I have the goal of becoming a good soccer player , my goal is to swim well. The goal is the ultimate goal of an individual: where he concentrates his forces , the center of the achievement of a whole series of things . The goal is a target here is the link to the cusp.
The cusp , in addition to being in architecture the sharp tip of the buildings , or in a particular of dental medicine , in the language of ancient arms indicates the tip of the arrows , or better of the lances .
The bizarre factor of the title lies in the fact that the goal is already quite an abstract , belonging to the language of the soul , while the cusp is a real object and consistent. The pun is structured so with these three metaphysical definitions :
1 ) Inanimate objects can come to life and have a goal ;
2 ) Everything in nature is alive
3 ) The magic and deities exist : obsessive belief of our artist .
The goal of our launches us into also suffered in the concept of war, revolution , revenge and conquest of peace. These are the reasons that led to Nito choose this title.
Regarding the investigation of the novel and the particular inspiration, I refer the reader to the section dedicated to the two books “books” .
The text has not participated in any competition and was published on behalf publisher Arduino Sack of Rome in 2011 and distributed via the Web through search engines and online bookstores .
While born The goal of the cusp , in the drawer of Nito irons had accumulated , as we said before dozens of sonnets . The author then decides , on an expeditious basis, to publish this second job, just to highlight his vision of the world , not so much to achieve consensus or a ” tide ” of readers from all over the world. The theme of the poem is delicate and not easy to get ahead, the age of technology , with the praises of nature written on paper .
After several audit work , our poet divides the collection into three sections and, depending on the topics covered , the book titled : Poems of the hearth of the mystery and whatnot. It will be the publisher Aletti in Rome to have it published in final and networking as the first book.
