Amazing Day is a Hip Hop event that from 2006 to 2020 has collected work of artists practicing in different genres from all over the world. In this volume I have collected some of the writing from 14 past events, selecting materials among thousands of images taken by almost 30 photographers. First I wanted to talk about how I approached Hip Hop and how I began to want to organize moments of encounter, because it was so important for me and for this culture in general. A story made of images and words that see some of the contemporary protagonists of the scene evolve. My visionary desire to transform a small town like Locate di triulzi into a living museum, full of colours, in the sunlight. In fourteen editions, Amazing Day has become the longest lasting and most consistent Hip Hop event in Italy, as well as one of the most important and respected "jams" of our country, maintaining over time a high artistic and cultural level, a true Italian reference point in the European scene. Its importance does not lie in the success of a single edition, but in its continuity, which shows an evolution, and in its perception, able to create new identity and forment new interest in the community at large. Amazing Day was a wonderful adventure for me, to which I dedicated most of my energy, leaving aside some of my personal projects as an artist. With this book I leave a trace of what I have done and, even if I don't know what this future holds, I try to live the present 100%, as always.
