POP UP: Conversations about the present of music with Andrea De Sica, Riccardo Sinigallia, Tlon
On the ever-closer relationship between music, cinema and new arts
"Music is 50% of a movie," said George Lucas. Is this percentage still valid? Or with the advent of TV series and gaming has music even exceeded that 50%? Certainly, the relationship between new arts and music is very close and can offer many food for thought.

Riccardo Sinigallia is one of the most talented songwriters born in the Roman school of the Eighties-Nineties, the same as Niccolò Fabi, Federico Zampaglione, Max Gazzè, Daniele Silvestri and many others. In 1994 he collaborated with Niccolò Fabi, working on his first two records and signing with him songs such as Capelli, Vento d'estate and Lascarsi un giorno a Roma. A few years later he is alongside Max Gazzè, for whom he signs some songs of La Favola di Adamo ed Eva. In 2000 he worked with Tiromancino on all the songs of La Descrizione di un Attimo, including Due Destini. He made his debut as a soloist in 2003 with an album of the same name, preceded by the single Bellamore. Two years later his second album arrives, Incroci a mezzo strada. His career as a songwriter, however, continues hand in hand with that of author and producer. He is the one to sign the production of Coez's first album, Non Erano Fiori, in 2013. He participates for the first time as an artist competing in Sanremo in 2014 with the songs Prima di Andare Via and Una Regenerazione. In the following years his career continues with collaborations of the highest level. In 2016 he signed and produced some songs on the album La fine dei Vent'anni di Motta, awarded with Tenco in the Opera prima section. In the same year he also wrote the song Amami Amami for Mina and Adriano Celentano.
