 -Hello Maria Laura, would you like to introduce yourself for our listeners\readers ?
Well, hello! I am an Italian woman,  actress-singer or singer-actress, I can’t tell what comes first … I live in Paris where I moved 12 years ago … since then I started a new career , a different life, by sharing wonderful experiences with amazing musiciens and composers, like Régis Huby.

 -You’re a very eclectic artist, actress, dancer, singer; would you like to tell us something about these different aspect of your career ?
I am very curious , I like to explore… but to do that you need to know very well your instruments, and all different ways to express yourself. Your body, your voice, your heart, your mind. Then you also need to « live » intensely each moment of your life: happiness, pain, excitement, deception, failures, and victories … that ’s the « natural experience » of life … Then, you put all of that in what you do on stage … and that is fascinating … you change … always …  that’s surprisingly good.

-We read that you have worked for a while with 'La Rancia' troupe.We saw 'A chorus line ' production back in the 90's. How is to work in a musical ?
I worked in musical-theatre about 15 years of my life … I really enjoy that . I had the chance to play wonderful roles like Cassie in « A Chorus line » ( in Italy and also in the UK tour ), Sally Bowles in Cabaret, Anita in West Side Story ( European Tour ), Roxie Hart in Chicago, and many many others … it was so much fun! I travelled a lot, I have seen so many towns, so many theaters, full houses … it was exciting … but at some point I felt I needed to go somewhere else, and I felt the urge to grow up, to choose what to «say» , to be responsable of a precise « message » to deliver …

-You have worked for television, theatre and cinema. Which one is your favourite?
Theater is my life … I like live shows, I love the « truth »… theater is made of real bodies, real voices, real audiences , so no tricks, just real life and pure emotions …

-Would you like to tell us something about your cd ‘'Gaber, io e le cose'' ?
Gaber, io e le cose is a « duo ».  A voice ( my voice ) and a multi-violinist Régis Huby, who has done an amazing work of arrangements, so original and also very respectful of the meaning of each word .Giorgio Gaber is an italien ICON. He was a singer-actor-song writer and also an intellectual . He had the urgence to get to people , to touch their hearts, to wake up their minds .He and his friend lyricist Sandro Luporini, they wrote a portrait of the italien society, but they also told us about the deepest and complex part of the « human being ». Their language is so poetic and so real, so direct and refined .So, this project is deeply connected with my personal state of mind. It tells what I think about « le cose della vita »  The music in beautiful and words are pure poetry .

 -Is this your first time here in Finland ?
Yes it is , and I am so happy to be here. People are great, full of kindness and very very sensitive.

-How did you get here in Finland ?
Thanks to Charles Gil ! He is a rare example of a manager who really does his job … he works hard ! His job is very difficult nowadays, and thanks to him a lot of musiciens come to this beautiful country and get the chance to meet wonderful people and know your culture.
