It 'was created a double CD, which includes all new songs in the first of two CDs and in the second a new interpretation and reinterpretation, very faithful to the original score, the three pieces that make up the album history "Partenope", considered by critics and fans of progressive rock worldwide, a milestone for both the Italian and international discography for the same group Hosanna. "Palepolitana" began as a tribute to Neapolitan, as the exaltation of the "excellence" artistic, cultural, historical, musical and landscape of Naples; It is a true declaration of love for their city exorcising all those clichés that see it described as a place of degradation, violence, crime, lawlessness and the Camorra. Naples certainly live its contradictions and its difficulties atavistic and there really is a degradation and rampant lawlessness due to the difficult survival of a people that has been oppressed by many dominations and slavery, but not unlike all the realities of the countries, the towns and cities of the world. Well just by Hosanna, tired of passively to the spread of insults and slanders directed to their city by so much superficiality immoral and media, it raised a loud cry of love in defense of their land, their roots and their centuries-old traditions, highlighting all the positives of a city proud of its past, its present and its future. A city that "is to die" and that without fear of contradiction, has always been the true capital of the Mediterranean. From these issues comes the pretext and the poetic context that sap from the new album of the group, to highlight the many excellences that has borne and continues to bear the city. The name "Palepolitana" was created by 'acronym and the merger of the terms Palepoli (such as the historic city of Naples after the primitive related to the Siren Parthenope) and Metro (underground train or public transport Naples famous throughout the world for its extraordinary "stations of contemporary art"). It is a "concept album" as The Man and Palepoli, which tells a hypothetical surreal story of a character somewhere between a man and an android, that by the waves on the rocks of Megaride in the Gulf of Naples, wet from a sudden rain storm, it takes refuge in the underground and falls quickly to the ground for reaching a destination unknown to him instinctively and unknown attracted by the darkness of a tunnel. As a reference to the descent of Aeneas in the Underworld Lake Averno described by Virgil, in this way it leaves the strange apparitions of souls, ghosts and "munacielli", moods, virtual reality and dream figures that belong deeply to the history of the city and manifest and reveal themselves through the sweat of the walls of the bowels of this land full of deep feelings and sacred ancestral. The train runs, runs, runs into the darkness and brings us to know the true soul of Naples. (maracash.com)
