On the first anniversary of his death, a concert  dedicated to him takes place at the Ancient Theater of Taormina, in his Sicily. At Ciao Franco… Over and over again will be present friends and artists who have traveled a stretch of road together with Battiato, from Fabio Cinti and Angelo Privitera to the Nuovo Quartetto Italiano.
