Being interested in certain aspects of popular music, I became aware of several similarities between popular Neapolitan melodies and the Argentinean tango. Napolitango is based on an imaginary journey to Naples and Buenos Aires. In retaining certain characteristics of the original music, Napolitango embodies an inspiration and an almost theatrically passionate character which is common to these two genres.
The piece has been composed for the Parisian Festival Paris Banlieues Tango 2001.

Born in Alexandria (Italy) in 1969, Salvatore Di Stefano studied composition with Guido Donati and Alberto Colla. He also attended courses at the APM School of Saluzzo, and at Accademia Chigiana in Siena with Azio Corghi and Mauro Bonifacio.
Salvatore has been involved in composition for television, and his compositions have been used in short films and documentaries produced by Rai and Cinecittà school.
His artistic output is not restricted to a single musical language: while his first compositions were tonal, he has since moved to explore the many languages and forms of the 20th century.
Salvatore graduated from the Politecnico di Torino in 1996 with a degree in physics. He has also taken classes at IRCAM focusing on the use of software in the creation of music.
His compositions have been performed in concerts devoted to his work in Paris, in other French cities and in Italy, and they are published by Ut Orpheus.
Salvatore has lived in France since 2000, and has collaborated with the Conservatory of Lion.
He studied musical languages of the 20th and 21st centuries and orchestration at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Lyon, and continues to compose new works in collaboration with various ensembles, schools and institutions.
He received a commission for a new work for ensemble by the Festival Oboe 2014 (Paris). He also got a special mention (as a composer) at the Grand Prize Ibla Foundation.
