is more of a myth then a musical act. It is believed that the project began over 700 years ago in the city of Florence in the late middle ages. As the story is told, the popular renaissance philosopher Sir H.B. Montiotis was hard at work on his writings at the Duomo Florence Cathedral, the highest point in Florence when a terrible Lightening storm broke out. Montiotis decided it would be at this time that he would speak to nature face to face, and began climbing the exterior of the Cathedral. This rigorous task was but brought to a halt when a young artist, Donatello Dustavelli appeared from a 4th floor window of the cathedral. “Good heavens what are you doing Sir Herbert Bramante Montiotis”, asked a puzzled Dustavelli. Montiotis’ response is noted as the first recognized speakings of electricity as he replied quite confidently, “I am electrifying my soul young Dustavelli, roll wit it !?!” Together the two began the journey further to the top of the Cathedral. By the time the two had made it to the top of the Cathedral the storm had passed, but on the way up Sir Dustavelli began singing a popular song of the time they both fancied, Justiana Biebalini’s “Never Say Never”.When the two finally made it down several hours later, they decided this adventure had brought together a bond that electrified their inner musical souls and that they would perform on the streets of Florence as the act Electric Soul
