May has begun and Liberato is back.
INTOSTREET and JE TE VOGLIO BENE ASSAJE are the two new hits of the Neapolitan singer, released between May 2 and 3 on YouTube with the video clips directed - as always - by Francesco Lettieri.

Since the first release of 9 MAGGIO, it is clear that in Liberato, videos are complementary to the lyrics and the beat of the songs. They create an audiovisual narration that kidnaps the viewer for 4 minutes and a half at a time, transporting him to Naples in a teenage love story.

These two videos - released 24 hours apart from each other - tell the jealousy and tenderness of a love from the point of view of Him in INTOSTREET and from the eyes of Her in JE TE VOGLIO BENE ASSAJE. The effect is a specular mirror narration that tells the daily life of two teenagers through the neo-Neapolitan topos of the phone call, carried in a contemporary version in vocal messages on WhatsApp.

As often happens when talking about Liberato, it is the city of Naples that steals the scene in the videos. Francesco Lettieri - the best Italian director of video music clips, who has worked with Calcutta, Noyz Narcos, Motta and many others - uses the rhymes in Neapolitan contaminated by English and the electronic beat to resit in images the neomelodical/hipster mood of Liberato’s contemporary Naples. The result is a story that goes from the video of 9 MAGGIO to JE TE VOGLIO BENE ASSAJE with a coherent narrative thread that travels on the imaginary made of afternoons in moped between Posilippo and Mergellina, the kisses in the humid halls of the buildings, the wait for two blue spills on the phone.

The power of the videos of Liberato lies in Lettieri’s talent to capture the true and intimate everyday of the people, the uniqueness of a city without falling into clichés and decadent stereotypes about Naples. The aesthetics of the videos of Lettieri is inspired by the refined cinema of Paolo Sorrentino and the realism of Matteo Garrone - both Neapolitan directors - and fishes in its delicacy and power by international directors such as Spike Jonze and Terrence Malick.
