The New York Times compares him to Tom Waits and Randy Newman: for decades, Italian singer-songwriter Paolo Conte has been one of the most successful musicians worldwide. In his music documentary, director Giorgio Verdelli takes viewers on a journey that takes them from the origins of Conte’s artistic work to the international concert stages. In Paolo Conte’s studio in Asti, the director succeeds in creating intimate interview moments with the media-shy artist, which are enriched by extensive concert archive material and interviews with companions such as Jane Birkin, Roberto Benigni or Isabella Rossellini.  PAOLO CONTE – VIA CON ME is the portrait of a passionate artist who weaves emotion, perfection and grandeur into an overall musical experience in his songs.
