The Spirit of Rush

LA VILLA STRANGIATO is an Italian project by Gabriele Ferrari and Carlo Fattorini, two professional
musician that have many international experience. The original purpose of La Villa Strangiato was
to revive Rush’s music of the ’70s and early ’80s – the period of their maximum popularity. The
band formed in 2010 and, thanks to the contribution of several friends and musicians, they finally
presented their first show (entirely dedicated to the album “Exit Stage Left”) in Rome in March
2011. Since then La Villa Strangiato have gone from strength to strength performing their Rush
tribute in top, live music, venues and festivals all over Europe, culminating in 2014 with their first
performance at “Rush Eucon” – the officially endorsed European convention of devoted Rush fans.
Through 2014/15 La Villa Strangiato hit the road with a specially dedicated production entitled
“Rush 40”, a concert designed in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original band, taking in
venues throught the UK and Europe. On 2016 still on tour with the “Signals under pressure” the
band was also selected for play on The Rushfest Scotland with the original Rush producer Terry
Brown. But the band’s greatest popularity is in the year 2017 with the show dedicated to the
famous 2112 album. The success of this tour will grant to the band their second participation in
the 2017 edition of “Rush Eucon” once again in the company of producer Terry Brown.For 2018
the band presents the new show “Stranger Spheres”, an event inspired by the 40th anniversary of
the release of the album “Hemispheres”. But their biggest challenge will be for the year 2019
where the band will propose the entire live album “A Show of Hands” in a fascinating setlist with
some songs that the original band has never repeated since the time. In addition, there will
certainly be some surprises as the band has used to us in the past seasons
