Porcapizza : Porcapizza
Porcapizza [ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ]
An Italian one-man-band playing several instruments that he builds himself out of recycled materials, recording and looping sounds and singing and broken english and stuff :)
One-Man-Band-Recycled-Music-Show
Mantova, Italy
Porcapizza's show is a mixture of music, art and entertainment. This unstoppable one-man-band plays several instruments that he created out of recycled objects such as: a tennis racket, an old typing machine, a telephone etc... Thanks to his ingenious and funny approach, Massimo will guide the audience to an alternative journey through music: spontaneous improvised tracks, original material and selected covers will show what can be done when you combine "thinking outside the box" with a good dose of talent and burning passion for music.

Porcapizza's show is fully designed, assembled and constantly upgraded over the last 10 years by the mind and hands of Massimo Tortella, born and raised in the heart of north Italy, Viadana. Multi-instrumentalist: singer, electric and classical guitar, bass guitar, drums/percussion, harmonica and producer... working experience ranging from professional workshops in and out of the educational system with kids of any type and age, to playing hundreds of gigs in several bands (rock, folk, blues, metal, punk hardcore, indie).

How I can help you:
- I can entertain crowds :) with full recycled music show

- (pre pandemic times) i run a workshop for children and adults for building recycled instruments (with really simple objects like: straws, corks, ballons..)

- i can show i build my personal recycled instruments (tennis racket, typewriter, knives, telephone etc...)
How you can help me:
They can surely follow me on IG or FB but my main aim is to play and travel around the world (asap) in front of people.. so just spread the word i guess :)
I'm also open to discuss collaborations (i personally don't have much experience in blowing instruments for instance..)
