"Venus In Furs: interview about Woodstock Compilation"

We are just 20 years old and it's incredible how a similar event may have been conceived 40 years ago. Woodstock is the Manifesto of the importance of musical language, of it's value like a meeting-point and struggle of ideas.
We felt deeply "Volunteers" (our Jefferson Airplane's cover): it's rock that shouts to the world the desire to change... And not "we have the X-Factor"... - XL ("La Repubblica") Italy

"Meet Venus In Furs"

The pictoresque country of Italy is known for the outstanding artistic and musical abilities that the nation produces. Throughout the centuries, it is still apparent that the notable talent of this great people continues to flow through the generations and is clearly seen today.
Italian band Venus In Furs, named after the famous book by Leopold Von Sacher Masoch and song by Velvet Underground, is a prime example of this talent.
Officially formed in 2006, Venus In Furs features Claudio Terreni with vocals, guitar and piano; Giampiero Silvi with violin, synth and guitar; Marco "Zorro" Doni on bass and guitar; and Niccolò Ceccotti on the drums.
Originally, Venus In Fur's music began as alternative, slow and melodic songs, but over time transformed into direct rock'n'roll that speaks of society, behaviors, uneasiness and everything that impresses the four band members, who have known and played with each other for years.
Says Terreni "We play together because first off we are all friends and together we combine our characters and different personalities to create music of quality".
