“We’re the ones with the illusions, the great passions,
we’re the ones you’re looking at now…”

This is the story of Vasco Rossi’s extraordinary career as a musician and performer, told in his own words and with a wealth of unpublished material.
Twenty-five million discs sold in a 30-year career and still on the crest of the wave: Vasco Rossi’s story is unique. In the full-length documentary Questa storia qua, directed by Alessandro Paris and Sibylle Righetti, Vasco talks about himself, offering us an intimate portrait for the very first time.
Super 8 movies, family photos, amateur VHS videos and old radio recordings help to create a new and authentic picture of the rocker from Emilia. Vasco accompanies us on each stage of the journey that from Zocca, in the province of Modena, led to stardom, and as he talks about his personal life, without ever taking himself too seriously, his words conjure an entire epoch, a whole generation.
His friends, the attachments of a lifetime and the musicians who have always accompanied him, show us that special place composed of memories, nostalgia, rebellion, freedom and talent, where all his songs are born.
