La Dottrina degli Opposti is a creative project by the Genoese musician Andrea Lotti, composer and author of the pieces, as well as the founder of the La Coscienza di Zeno group.
The ensemble formed for the realization of the project sees the participation of more than thirty elements, including members from different progressive formations already established in the sector, such as La Conscienza di Zeno and the Tempio delle Clessidre, and the orchestra of the G.F. Ghedini from Cuneo.
Most of the arrangements are also performed by the orchestra and the taste of the album definitely refers some episodes of the great classics of Italian progressive rock of the 70s. The melodies and pastel shades of the timbres make the mood of the album very smooth, dreamy, a new episode of symphonic prog that continues in the wake of the great tradition of Italian symphonic prog.
The common thread that links the various themes of the album is the transition from adolescence to adulthood, enchantment and disenchantment, dream and awakening, hence the title Arrivederci Sogni.
