“Navigavia – Lei attende” written and performed by Velasquez, Dario Rodighiero and Salvatore Pagliaro is candidated for a Nomination as Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals at the 65th GRAMMY.

This song is part of the soundtrack created for the GDR campaign “Navigavia” by “InnTale”, the most followed YouTube channel in Italy in RPG.

The song is currently being promoted on socials using the hashtags #ForYourConsideration and #FYC, along with consistent support from InnTale fan groups.

This unexpected shortlist for a Grammy is the first one for this group, which has started working together only in 2022.

“Navigavia – Lei attende” is a funeral shanty song, played for the dramatic death of one of the character of the GDR. It sounds like a Viking song and a Pirate Shanty, and the lyrics seem like e poem for the Death who awaits his sons and daughters.

In the context of the story of Navigavia, a fantasy world where pirates have powers and music is an instrument for create magic, this song is a reminder for every man who takes the sea: she (the Death) is always awating like a mother.

A nostalgic journey to the 77's A New Hope feeling. The story of this STAR WARS Fan Film is placed on Tatooine. R2-D2 must locate an Imperial artifact, and C3PO must deal with the identity crisis, while the Jawas and the Empire are lurking nearby...

Written and directed by Marty Sliwinski, produced by Lunaris Maar Films, this movie is scored by a soundtrack composed by Dario Rodighiero, inspired by the style of the Star Wars saga.


"It's been a great journey, composing the music for this film and working with Marty, I'm a huge fan of John Williams and his work for Star Wars, I tried my best to keep that type of mood for this short."
