The Syracusa Guitar Duo comprises father and son guitarists Nello and Simone Alessi. The two were inextricably linked by solid reasons of human nature, being father and son, even before reasons of a musical nature. The idea of forming a duo formed within the home walls when Simone, at that time little more than a child, began playing the guitar under the watchful guidance of his father, the guitarist Nello Alessi. Only in the year 2007 did the duo give life to effective artistic activity, with commitment and professional interest, soon highlighting harmony and communion of musical intent that led them to hold many recitals, for prestigious musical institutions, in Italy and abroad. The repertoire of the Duo ranges from baroque to contemporary music (several composers have written and dedicated some of their works to the Duo), passing transversally from ethnic and popular music. In the Duo's programs there are in fact transcriptions and reworkings of famous melodies, belonging to the national and international popular tradition. These latest works, still unpublished, are in the process of being published and will make up the program of the next record edition of the Duo.
