"'Mondo Volato,' by Lorenzo Cimino, is a beautiful journey through the various possibilities of arranging a piece ." —Rockit.it

"Very original and precious work, not surprisingly matured in a long time—underlines the musicologist Renzo Cresti— even amusing in the fast and continuous changes of the pieces. An exceptional work that of Lorenzo Cimino who knows how to inhabit different and distant sound worlds, with technical knowledge and incredible participation." —No Solo Cinema
