The album: Although it can be attributed to esoteric folk, both for its stylistic choices and for the general concept, The Magic Door is also inspired by British, Celtic, Mediterranean and Oriental folk sounds, tracing a peculiar poetic beyond the connotations, in which are placed the 9 tracks, all original, that make up the album. The theme of the album is Rome's magic door, a.k.a. the alchemical portal. The magic door was built by the Marquis Massimiliano Palombara in his residence, Villa Palombara, vital center of esoteric Rome of the 1600's. According to the legend, a pilgrim was a guest of the villa for one night. The pilgrim disappeared forever passing through the door but left behind a paper with symbols and seven epigraphs. In the intro, Marquis Palombara himself tells us of his encounter with the pilgrim and that he had the symbols and the epigraphs engraved on the door, knowing that one day someone would decode them.

The following seven songs are inspired by the planets that the epigraphs refer to and the refrain of each song is a translation of each epigraph. In the epilogue, the pilgrim himself, from the other side of the door, sings all seven epigraphs in their original language, latin. From celtic and mediterranean sounds to dark folk with exotic nuances, the music style over- comes connotations thanks to an original poetics. This album is the result of Giada and Arthuan's journey through the magic door, guided by its symbols and epigraphs and the infinite and multi-dimensional imaging they evoke, across traditions, myths and dreams.
