«I left Cuba in increasingly a charge that is hard to abandon. The audience savor the art, my music, eating it, and this fills me with satisfaction. Rich emotions and joy, sharing, that's what I take away from this wonderful experience». Marco Lo Russo aka Rouge, returning from the XVIII Italian Culture Week in Cuba, organized by the Italian Embassy in Havana, carries a suitcase full of applause and rewards; dates of concerts in repeated public clamor, changes of location at the last minute because too many spectators could not attend the concert ... a Cuba in love with Marco Lo Russo, italian composer and accordionist, enterprising young man who by his own forces he carries on, around the world, the project to re-evaluate a tool always relegated to the dance halls and festivals, making honor and turning it into an instrument noble and decent: the accordion.
