Renato Bellucci 50th Anniversary: playing in Barrios' Childhood Home
Renato Bellucci plays "Una Limosna por el Amor de Dios"
2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of my classical guitar career. It started in Taranto, Italy in 1968. Little did I know that today, 50 years later I would be performing Agustin Barrios Mangore's last composition "Una Limosna por el Amor de Dios" in his Childhood home in San Juan Bautista de las Misiones, Paraguay. In the Video I am playing Barrios' 1885 guitar. It was last played by the Paraguayan Maestro in 1918 in Luque's Cathedral, Virgen del Rosario. This is what you could call "every guitar player's dream come true". I want to thank most dearly Taguató Audiovisuales for their awesome production and most especially Hernan Brugada for the friendship and unconditional generosity. I must also thank with all my heart my parents, Francesco & Maria for having had the vision and allowing me to pursue a musical career. S.D.G.
