Over 300 pages of memorable shots, Rock’n’Roll icons, moments of pure joy.
A precious publication that contains the essence of the exhibition and what was and is Rock’n’Roll through the eyes of the Summer Jamboree in twenty years of history.
A universal totem dedicated to the Rock’n’Roll spirit.
A journey into memory that is good for the soul.
Renzo Arbore, nationally recognized Italian showman, signs the exquisite exhibition catalogue
“When rock’n’roll was born, I was the age of reason. Not only of reason, but I think I reasoned a little better than the others because the others who heard rock’n’roll were saying: “It’s a trend! Of course it’s a trend that goes on and off”. How the cha cha cha had passed, how the dances that were danced beforehand then had passed. It seemed like rock’n’roll was fated to be a dance and nothing else. I immediately understood, because I had been taught jazz, that rock’n’roll was not a trend, but it was going to become an era. And so it was. …”
The Summer Jamboree is the festival that stops time.
An unmissable occasion for all lovers of early rock, of the American Graffiti style.
The Summer Jamboree presents a very special opportunity to experience and appreciate Swing, Rock’n’Roll and the extraordinary musical culture of that era, it makes us happy.
The Summer Jamboree is the closest thing to ‘Back to the Future’ that science can offer at the moment: a journey back in time to America in the 1950s, but without the risk of embarrassing encounters with the teenage version of your mother
