“Il Porto di Venere is a new band, making its debut here, that boasts in its ranks musicians of great caliber and experience of the music scene, including international: Maurizio Di Tollo (Finisterre and Maschera di Cera, just to name a couple of names), Elisa Minari (begins her career in the ranks of Nomadi), Erik Montanari (Nada, Massimo Zamboni), Stefano Zeni (Finardi, Concato and Ruggiero, just to name a few ...), Marco Remondini (Franco Battiato, Giuni Russo and many others) and, 'last but not least', Cristiano Roversi ( Moongarden, Submarine Silence), one of the greatest Italian talents, a container of emotions, a 'Midas King of music'.”

“With one slight reservation, (I think that) it is terrific throughout, in turn intriguing and mesmerising, beautifully constructed and, all in all, an absolute delight to listen to.
My reservation surrounds the opening vocals on the opening track, Formidabile, which I personally found to be quite discordant and potentially likely to deter the casual listener. But persevere - it's just an (inexplicable) aberration, and, thereafter, the vocals are wholly pleasing throughout. Instrumentally, the album is, as you might imagine with the people involved, little short of top notch. There is no more to be said. A hauntingly beautiful release. Great stuff.”-progarchives
