LA VILLA STRANGIATO is an Italian project by Gabriele Ferrari and Carlo Fattorini, two professional musician that have many international experience. The original purpose of La Villa Strangiato was to revive Rush’s music of the ’70s and early ’80s – the period of their maximum popularity. The band formed in 2010 and, thanks to the contribution of several friends and musicians, they finally presented their first show (entirely dedicated to the album “Exit Stage Left”) in Rome in March 2011. Since then La Villa Strangiato have gone from strength to strength performing their Rush tribute in top, live music, venues and festivals all over Europe, culminating in 2014 with their first performance at “Rush Eucon” – the officially endorsed European convention of devoted Rush fans.
