the singer presented his song The Pharmacist, accompanied by a very special band
Sanremo 2021, the looks of March 2: prime time
A unique timbre, transformism and talent: Max Gazzè is an all-round artist and he proved it once again on the stage of the Ariston when – during the first evening of the Festival on Tuesday 2 March – he presented his song in the competition The Pharmacist .
Accompanying him was a mysterious band that made a lot of talk about themselves, not only for the very particular (and complex) name Trifluoperazina Monstery Band, but also for the fact that there was no other information.
The secret was revealed during the first evening of the Festival when Gazzè took the stage surrounded by hardbacks depicting some famous characters: from Queen Elizabeth on drums to Jimi Hendrix on guitar and Paul McCartney on bass, without forgetting Marilyn Monroe to the choirs and Igor (the fictional character of many horror stories about Frankestein) on keyboards. A comic band created by artist Alessandro Baronciani, cartoonist and illustrator.
But what does the name mean? Trifluoperazine is a drug that is used to treat some forms of anxiety and schizophrenia. A pharmaceutical compound, therefore, which fits perfectly with the title of the song that Max Gazzé presented on the stage of the 71st edition of the Sanremo Festival and word that is reported in the text of the song in the competition.
Not even the dress that the artist wore to tread the stage of the Ariston was chosen by chance: Gazzè presented himself tracing the likeness of Leonardo Da Vinci (as written in glitter also on the back of his cloak, together with the number 11) well-known Italian inventor and scientist who lived in the Renaissance period. Her dress was born from research in the Tirelli costume shop in Rome and from a four-handed work of the artist with stylist Lorenzo Oddo. To complete the look there is also a long fake beard, as well as long hair curated by Rocchetti & Rocchetti.
Returning to the Trifluoperazina Monstery Band it must also be said that it has a Wikipedia page that contains the explanation of what it is: that is cardboard shapes used by Max Gazzè in Sanremo 2021. The band has been eliminated for non-performance and now Max Gazzè will continue the adventure Sanremo alone.
