Songs for Freedom Loving People. Italian by birth, but American by choice, Gianluca Zanna from the open spaces of Arizona shares his emotions and love for Freedom with his latest music production.
Starting at the beginning, Gianluca Zanna, was born in Rome, Italy, and raised in the seacoast city of Anzio, one of the most pivotal places in the outcome of World War II. There, he spent much time with his maternal grandfather who would often playfully sing to Luca about Arizona (Il Tango delle Capinere), where the young boy never imagined he would one day make his home.
During his Convitto Nazionale boarding school experience, at 14, Luca discovered music. From that point on, instead of playing soccer (he hated it), he started to write songs, lyrics, and he taught himself how to play guitar, bass, drums and everything else that makes noise. He says the brain was and is his main musical instrument.
As a student, Luca studied Ancient Latin and Ancient Greek. He also discovered a love for the great Italian poets of the classical past, like Ovidio, Catullo, Dante, Petrarca, and D'Annunzio. He admired their ability to transmit feelings and pictures in a few brief phrases as a way to fight for what they believed in whether it be love or politics.
Every spare moment, instead of playing soccer, he wrote poetry and dreamt to one day become an American.
At 16 he joined the Military Academy of Nunziatella in Naples, Italy.
After High School graduation, he spent a period as a world traveler, passionate about windsurfing. He stayed in the South Pacific, Polynesia, Fiiji, Samoa, and the Canary Islands, among other exotic locations. Before he legally emigrated to America, Luca was admitted to the prestigious Rome University Law School, where he excelled until he realized that he was wasting his time in Italy, studying Italian law, when he actually knew in his heart he wanted to become an American.
In this period, Zanna was one of the youngest Publishers of the Italian Music Business: he ran a Magazine, Contatto Discografico, and he published music books like the Vocal Method of Elizabeth Sabine, the vocal coach of several rockstars from Hollywood like Megadeth and Axl Rose. Zanna was also Music Manager and Music Producer (he produced Aurelio RE) to several musical bands in Rome.
Finally he made his big step: he went to the US Embassy in via Veneto where successfully got a Visa to come to AMERICA!
He legally emigrated to America the October 1998, and here, he's written and produced over a hundred songs sold all over the world.
