The new album, arranged in collaboration with pianist/producer Andrea Sammartino is an intimate playlist of some of her favorite songs and a treasure of musical memories. From Vasco to Phil Collins, Lucio Dalla, Supertramp, Pino Daniele and special guest Flavio Boltro, "The songs we chose to reinterpret are great successes that echo from our past. They have a strong reminiscent power for us and right from the first notes are able to carry us back in time; almost like a quantum leap, making us re-live the same emotions of those years."
Greta protagonist in various national and international tours
2018 started with two important appointments for Greta Panettieri.
In March she toured Italy as special guest vocalist with legendary brazilian singer Toquinho, tour that found great success recording all sold out shows.This round of concerts touched some very important stages, like Piacenza Jazz festival and the Blue Note Milan where the Brazilian singer-songwriter received a Blue Note Award for his 50th year of career, and Greta had the opportunity to share the stage, besides Toquinho, with famous italian singer Ornella Vanoni. Immediately after - from April 6th to the 18th - Greta left for Russia to introduce her own projects to the Russian audience.
A series of 7 concerts between festivals and theaters, accompanied by pianist Andrea Sammartino and local musicians and big bands.
The public welcomed Greta's performances with great enthusiasm and on many occasions the evenings ended with standing ovations. The second Russian tour is already in the making, as well as a new summer tour with Toquinho that will be soon announced.
The Roman singer is not taking a break though, while she is working on the new album, that will come out around Christmas time, she will meet her fans in several summer events, both in Italy, in China and Europe. Stay Tuned and follow her social pages for updates!

Coming in October "Shattered/Sgretolata" is the fifth album by eclectic and prolific singer/composer Greta Panettieri.
Made almost entirely of original songs, composed alongside pianist/producer Andrea Sammartino, this album is a 360 degree picture of Greta Panettieri's eclectic musical persona and her virtuoso artistic journey; a unique journey that cannot be defined by genre or style.
I'm In Love by Greta Panettieri, from the album Shattered/Sgretolata. Featuring Francesco Diodati on guitar, written by Greta Panettieri, Andrea Sammartino, Jennie Booth. Director: Massimo Salari
Cameraman and director of photography: Fiorenza Gherardi De Candei

The story of an irremediably finished relationship becomes a noir glamourous surrealist video clip produced by Greta's Bakery Music. Filmed in Rome the clip has been written by Greta and director Massimo Salari, eclectic and creative artist who for some months has been curating Greta's image.
Greta goes back to the original version of "Un anno d'amore" (A Year of Love) written by French-Italian singer Nino Ferrer entitled "C'est irreparable" made famous by Dalida, a charming french singer in many ways similar to the character of Mina. Greta Panettieri interprets the song in the original language, French, which reveals new meanings compared to the Italian version contained in the album "Non gioco più " (Play no more).
"Singing "Un anno d'amore" (One year of love) in French has completely transformed the song, different feelings and vibes are declared and therefore my interpretation has completely changed: weather on tour or recording I often sing is different languages (English, Brazilian, Spanish, Italinan) and it's very interesting to notice how the chosen language has a strong influence on the timbre of my voice, the sound emission, on my gestures and over all on the whole rendition of the song. The research I've done on this song made me focus on a parallel reality between Italy and France of the 60ies, Dalida with her elegance and charisma was to France what Mina was to Italy, inspiring a whole generation of authors and performers.
