Always considered one of the most authoritative musicians of that current commonly known as 'neoclassical' together with Ludovico Einaudi, Olafur Arnalds, Max Richter, Picco has established himself in the world as a brilliant and committed artist.

This is an awareness that is fortunately growing in the world, as we know that we are all connected in this destiny and that each of us has a part to play ...": in essence we are faced with important and indelazionabile choices, which require decisive stances, we are facing "The Last Gate".

The album is enriched by the presence, in addition to the piano, of a cello, a moderate electronic component, but above all by the harmonium, an ancient instrument, but also so current for its sound that the artist defines as "natural", and which fits perfectly not only in the sonority, but also in the philosophy of the new album.
