Comments by David Poliga, Director Giulio Macroni
“He came to Gabicce from Como on a motorbike and we chatted for a long time sitting at the end of the pier on the rocks. Far from the enthusiasm conveyed, I found a boy full of positive energy, of old schooling, enthusiastic, whose idea was very clear, to combine his rock music with a sport cars.He looked me straight in the eye and asked me to
Help him achieve two dreams he kept in his heart for months.. very ambitious and ambitious. I don’t know why, but I’ve always been so drawn to challenges and said yes without being convinced of the possibility of success. During one of hundreds of daily phone calls, to my question: Julio; Does an electric guitar have to have a certain shape and material? He replied that it was the electronic part that made him play the guitar. I immediately realized that I had to create something unique that could become a travel companion in all of his shows. The projects we are working on are different but all of them are unique and that is why I created a brand new guitar production in the form of CASCO, the only one built in the world that will accompany Giulio in his Musica-Motori performances. We’ll soon be going to Donington for SBK but the surprises don’t end there. We will also be present at Misano at the MotoGP on September 4th, but we will inform what we will do with the promoters as soon as possible.”

“I wanted to take the opportunity to meet David during the summer holidays, also because it was the only time I was ever at peace of mind, obviously not a ‘simple’ conversation, I remember when I went away, farewell, I had an indescribable smile and happiness, perhaps, For it was a bit like love at first sight, which struck you, and I said to myself on the inside ‘He, he could be the one I was looking for…’ Many will, but only: Julio, what you do excites me and is really beautiful, I cannot promise you that I will succeed, but I can instead give you my word, that I will do everything to make these dreams of yours come true. From here, we begin to hear comparisons day and night, right up to founding very important projects including the crazy and crazy idea of Helmet Guitar!I have worked for 9 years in this environment I have traveled halfway around the world but never had an idea like this Davide has collected some items that are of great importance, items that It can be seen in my opera!!!
