Vasco Rossi will open his last tour in Rimini. On June 2 he will set out again from the flooded Romagna. And today in an interview with Resto del Pug he talks about his relationship with the region: «I saw the Adriatic Sea for the first time around the age of 7/8, when my aunt took me there. Even today I remember the powerful emotion I felt when I saw so much water. It sounds trivial, but I’ve never seen it before. Zocca is a vacation spot, I spent the summers there at home, in the woods with my childhood friends, who in summer were joined by those who came to us on vacation. A few years later I frequented Rimini and Riccione but in reality I never saw the sea, for me it was as if it did not exist».

And I also have a staff of collaborators who help me with the content, a real web editorial team under my direction. I practically invented the clippini, the next step to posts, I addressed my followers with my newscast”.
