I've been living for a long time now with the inquietude to share the sounds that I heard during my early years, growing up in Italy. At home, my mother's collection of vinyl records were always playing the classic Italian hits by artists such as Mina and Celentano. When I listen to them today, they carry me off to a distant world of black and white movies, where Italian culture was represented with so much style and irony. So this album is a tribute to my roots, to the ageless music from an era through which, although I didn't live directly, I remember as one remembers a dream. It was born out of a need to return to my origins, to recover melodies from times gone-bye and to record the sounds that echo and resound in my subconscious.
