Historias was founded by Giovanni Ceccarelli and Ferruccio Spinetti in 2008, giving a series of successful concerts in Italy, also with the participation of saxophonist Marcello Allulli.
When the two musicians went on to founding group InventaRio, the duo stopped performing until its comeback in 2018.
Ferruccio Spinetti is a steady member of duo Musica Nuda and legendary group Avion Travel.
Ferruccio and Giovanni recorded together four albums: “InventaRio”, Latin Grammy awarded “InventaRio incontra Ivan Lins”, jazz trio album “Météores”, plus a participation by the double bassist to Giovanni’s quartet album “Daydreamin'”.
Having started playing jazz together, the two musicians share a deep musical empathy and a common strong sense for melody. The duo’s repertoire spans from original compositions to songs by Ivan Lins, Joe Barbieri, Jorge Drexler, and Fausto Mesolella.
