Fabrizio De Andre'

passed away ten years ago (January 11 1999), I still remember when I sent the email to Pask. The FT has a nice article that, among other things, wonders why De Andre’ is not as well known outside Italy as he is in Italy (the article starts like this: Sunday marks 10 years since the death of one of the greatest singer-songwriters of the 20th century: Fabrizio De AndrĂ©. Almost completely unknown in Britain, in Italy he is revered as a prophet and enjoys an evangelical following.)

Tonight at 10:40 PM RAI 3 and more than 150 radio stations will broadcast at the same time one of his songs: Amore Che Vieni Amore Che Vai.

Here are a few other songs (more or less in chronological order): Via del Campo, La Canzone di Maggio, Un Giudice (Cosa vuol dire aver un metro e mezzo di statura...), Creuza de Ma, Don Raffae’ (with Roberto Murolo).
