NEW SINGLE: Tommaso Paradiso – Ma lo vuoi capire?

 

April is a prolific month for Tommaso Paradiso because after the single released a few days ago, in which he sings with Elisa in the song “andrà tutto bene“, dedicated to the hope for the coronavirus, another single comes out: “ma lo vuoi capire?” . The single was released today 17th April, and all radio stations are broadcast by the song, which at the moment, however, is without video clip. This song will probably accompany us until the beginning of summer ..

 

LYRIC

Mi diverto
solitamente dopo le 18
la mattina invece, be
la mattina è quello che è
sono a letto
che cerco il pensiero giusto
per mettermi le scarpe
e muovermi nel mondo

Cos’è
che hai?
perchè scappi via così in fretta

Oh, ma lo vuoi capire?
che senza di te
pure il vino buono sa di aranciata
e che la notte non sa di niente
non prende gusto
neanche il suono del piano
il rumore dei pini
l’odore del sole

Oh, ma lo vuoi capire?
si o no
che senza di te
trascino male anche la spesa
che la marcia non entra
e la chiave non gira
e che questa sera
è solo un’altra sera
che piove, che piove, che piove
un’altra sera
che piove, che piove, che piove
oh no?

2020-03-10
Sono incerto
non so se sia alba o tramonto
scendere le scale o
o rimanere sdraiato in salotto
cos’è
che hai?
Perchè non mi guardi neanche

Oh, ma lo vuoi capire
che senza di te
pure il vino buono sa di aranciata
e che la notte non sa di niente
non prende gusto
neanche il suono del piano
il rumore dei pini
l’odore del sole

Oh, ma lo vuoi capire
si o no
che senza di te
trascino male anche la spesa
che la marcia non entra
e la chiave non gira
e che questa sera
è solo un’altra sera
che piove, che piove, che piove
un’altra sera
che piove, che piove, che piove

E se torni ci guardiamo pure un film
di quelli che fanno piangere
e se ti va poi ci spariamo pure un drink

Oh, ma lo vuoi capire
che senza di te
pure il vino buono sa di aranciata
e che la notte non sa di niente
non prende gusto
neanche il suono del piano
il rumore dei pini
l’odore del sole

Oh, ma lo vuoi capire
si o no
che senza di te
trascino male anche la spesa
che la marcia non entra
e la chiave non gira
e che questa sera
è solo un’altra sera
che piove, che piove, che piove
un’altra sera
che piove, che piove, che piove

24th march 1944: Ardeatine massacre

Roma-fosseardeatine6

The Ardeatine massacre, or Fosse Ardeatine massacre (Italian: Eccidio delle Fosse Ardeatine), was a mass killing carried out in Rome on 24 March 1944 by German occupation troops during the Second World War as a reprisal for the Via Rasella attack conducted on the previous day in central Rome against the SS Police Regiment Bozen.

Subsequently, the Ardeatine Caves site (Fosse Ardeatine) was declared a Memorial Cemetery and National Monument open daily to visitors. Every year, on the anniversary of the slaughter and in the presence of the senior officials of the Italian Republic, a solemn state commemoration is held at the monument in honour of the fallen. Each year, 335 names are called out, a simple roll call of the dead, to reinforce that 335 discrete individuals symbolise a collective entity.

CORONAVIRUS – All Italy blocked: all citizens will not be able to move from their municipality without serious motivation until April 3

italy

Few times I vent in critical post but this time it is really necessary. The Italian government issues 1 decree a day based on the evolution of coronavirus infections. Until yesterday only the Lombardy region was closed but from now on all Italy is closed and this is because before the decree closing the north, there was a news leak that allowed thousands of people to flee from north to south , putting the whole country at serious risk .. It is ridiculous enough that an entire country is on its knees for a virus that not only has low mortality but affects only the elderly and there are no beds for intensive care .. L Italy is becoming the laughing stock of the world and it will be difficult to recover from this situation, especially for the compromised global image.

Sometimes I think that Italy is governed by a country of old Masons because life in the other European countries runs smoothly, or almost as if nothing happened. Health comes first, but in this case we are paradoxical of everything …

If I think that Italy has a free health system instead other countries (such as the USA) cannot afford hospitalization without a credit card, it makes us smile. The truth is that by missing hospital beds, doctors would be forced to take responsibility for giving priority to the young people most likely to survive …

Even masses and all religious services were interrupted … No country had come to this except China …

When I think that American soldiers risk their lives every day while Italian citizens must stay at home in order not to infect ‘grandparents’, it is the parody of an apocalypse without values ​​…

The streets are empty, few people around. Only supermarkets are obliged to remain open, to allow people to buy basic necessities. It is a country that is going crazy ..

Coronavirus in Italy [UPDATE 09March]

Coronavirus-Italy-Lombardia-update

Today, March 9, the Milan stock exchange (and therefore the Italian one) has collapsed, reaching -10%. And all other European stock exchanges report losses of over 5%. It is a difficult moment, especially after the latest government decree, which closes Lombardy and 14 other provinces, thus isolating the most productive region of Italy. It was a long-awaited decision to close Lombardy, but it was necessary, despite all the schools in Italy having closed in recent days. In fact, it makes no sense to close schools while young people continue to crowd the city premises. The contagion is increasing exponentially, and the fear is that the virus may also affect regions of the south, where there are no health facilities like those in the north. It must be said that so far the 366 registered victims are mostly elderly with an average age of about 80 years .. but if hospitals were to become clogged, doctors could apply the priorities of care to younger people …
More drastic measures cannot be ruled out in the coming days. Football, for example, is continuing the championship, and yesterday all the games were played, although some players delayed the appearance on the pitch due to doubts and perplexities. If even a single positive player is found, the SerieA will obviously close instantly.

In these days, the images and news of Italy have gone around the world in all newspapers, advising not to land planes and ships with tourists or Italian people. The damage to the image is incalculable, especially after some French teasing. The Italian economy, even after this moment of epidemic, will have a lot of difficulty starting up again, especially for exports.

It is true that Italy has the largest number of people infected after China, but it is also true that Italians have made more swabs than any other country. In addition, the number of elderly people in Italian is higher than any other country in the world because the average age is around 60 years. I have some doubts that the numbers of the infected in Germany and France are true …

From the latest TV reports, I have been able to see many young people caring about the virus issue, continuing their lives.
It is always to photograph reality, but one thing is certain:
today stock exchanges all over the world have marked decreases causing the price of oil to drop by 31%, an event that has not occurred since 1991. Unmissable

Northern Italy is going into total chaos because people are not used to taking daily measures and behaviors that do not expose them to contact with other people. Never like this time, the differences between north and south emerge. The south has always been the subject of accusations for the mafia, but today more than ever the ignorance of the people in not being able to take measures of caution and isolation in their home emerges. In the north, in fact, the fashion (or habit) is to go to bars to have an aperitif with friends: a frenzied hyperactivism … which led some Italian VIPs to invite Italians (those from the north) to stay in home..

The imbeciles on the coronavirus

Coronavirus

By now the infection is affecting the whole world, and almost everyone is starting to understand the seriousness of the problem.

In Italy, coronavirus news has been in national newspapers for almost a month, but people have been joking for too long, and only now some are starting to repent. The thing that bothers me is seeing people’s imbeciles. In Italy there are people who joke all the time.

This is one of the reasons why I go sporadically on social …In northern Italy there are herniated damages and the damage to the image worldwide will affect all companies .. there is little to laugh about but people never change, even in emergencies ..

The elderly, who are the most at risk, would be able to cough you in the face, living in the doubt of being positive …

Corona virus is spreading widely in Italy

coronavirus

Until a few days ago in Italy there were only three infected and all hoped to have stemmed the coronavirus epidemic. But yesterday 21 February there was the first news of an infected person in Lombardy, in the province of Lodi. In a few hours the news has increased and the confirmed cases of infected people has risen to 16. In one day the infected people went from 3 to 35, making Italy the country with the most infected people.

It is sad to note that after exactly one month that newspapers and TVs had given all the recommendations to avoid contagion, it was necessary to isolate entire countries.
In fact, although Italy has taken the most drastic measures, closing all air flights to and from China, there has been the worst “epidemic”.

I don’t know what the real causes of all this are, but surely the neglect of the seriousness of the problem is one of the main reasons. Even if you are a manager, you cannot dine with colleagues who have just returned from China.

The Sanremo Festival 2020

Festival_di_Sanremo_2020_logo

In these days the Sanremo festival is taking place, the historic Italian music competition of international importance. Although for many years I have seen the show this year I exempt myself from seeing it for many reasons. Among the main reasons there is certainly the scandal in the declarations (political) of Claudio Baglioni, the previous presenter, who took advantage of such an important stage to express an idea certainly in favor of immigration.

Obviously music is inclusion … instead politics is exclusion (by its nature and regardless of political color) so sharing these two things is out of reach for everyone … As if that were not enough last year many songs were excluded for reasons very delicate: such as that of pedophilia and songs were received that would have favored the record companies of some interested parties.

The Sanremo festival is certainly a much more elegant stage than the talent shows – which also have a lot of success in Italy, first of all xFactor – but in recent years it has lost a lot of decorum and above all of a musical level …

Despite everything, I only looked at a few clips and casually at the most interesting moment of the festival, that is when an international guest was present: Lewis Capaldi.

This year they called an infinite number of guests, in addition to the fact that the valleys and collaborators are many .. Nevertheless, Lewis Capaldi was the most relevant (musical) guest …

DanteDì (DanteDay) it was established yesterday (17 January 2020) and will commemorate the 700 years of the Italian literary genius.

The Minister of Cultural Heritage and Activities, Dario Franceschini proposed the day for the commemoration of Dante and yesterday (17 January 2020) has been approved by the Council of Ministers. The day chosen is March 25, which is considered by many to be the day on which the long journey to the afterlife begins.

The proposal of the national day dedicated to Dante Alighieri as well as being the subject of several parliamentary acts had collected the adhesion of intellectuals and scholars and prestigious cultural institutions from the Accademia della Crusca, to the Società Dantesca, to the Dante Alighieri Society, to the Association of the Italianists to the Italian Society for the study of medieval thought.
These are the words of Minister Franceschini:

“Every year on March 25, the date that scholars recognize as the beginning of the journey into the afterlife of the Divine Comedy, Dantedi ‘will be celebrated. A day to remember Dante’s genius throughout Italy and throughout the world with many initiatives that will see a strong involvement of schools, students and cultural institutions ». «A year after the celebrations of the 700 years since Dante’s death – added Franceschini – there are already many projects under consideration by the Committee for the celebrations chaired by prof. Carlo Ossola. Dante – concluded Franceschini – remembers many things that hold us together: Dante is the unity of the country, Dante is the Italian language, Dante is the very idea of ​​Italy “.

The banana of the artist Maurizio Cattalan

cattelan-banana
The work of art of the famous artist Maurizio Cattalan

In 2019 the Italian and Paduan artist Maurizio Cattelan realizes “comedian”, an artistic performance that revolves around a banana hanging on the wall with adhesive tape.
This work has gone around the world, commented above all on social media, where people have delighted in criticism. Indeed, it is truly unusual to see such a work, and one must ask whether this “simplistic” work was successful only because it was created by a well-known artist.

In Italy, as in the rest of the world, people are indulged in making fun of the work by making a similar one with sausages, salami or similar things. The work was even more successful precisely because the mass media like TV talked about it ironically about the work. We hope not to witness some strange works like this year last year.

Lyric

Eravamo così belli o almeno ci sembrava
Ed un giorno normale era sempre un giorno speciale
Con la riga di lato e sogni oltre l’aldilà
Facevamo le conte, i pensieri nel dettato
E le notti studiare canto e matematica
Con le spalle scoperte e la musica di mamma e papà
Roma, il sistema solare e il cuore chiuso nella pelle
Cosa, cos’è che ci fa sentire ancora sulle stelle?

Ma è chiaro che siamo noi
Ma è chiaro che siamo
I biscotti inzuppati nel latte
Con i discorsi dopo mezzanotte
E ci ridiamo ancora
E ci piangiamo ancora qua

Mannaggia la Befana
Ma quanto ti ho voluto bene
Te ne voglio sempre di più
Se chiudo gli occhi vorrei crollarti addosso
Roma, le fontane scheggiate, Alberto Sordi nelle tempie
Cosa, cos’è che ci fa sentire polvere di stelle?

Ma è chiaro che siamo noi
Ma è chiaro che siamo
I biscotti inzuppati nel latte
Con i discorsi dopo mezzanotte
E ci ridiamo ancora
E ci piangiamo ancora qua
E non c’è un’altra cosa più vera
E più bella di questa
Fanculo tutto, questi sono i nostri anni
I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri anni
I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri anni
I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri anni
I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri

I biscotti inzuppati nel latte
Con i discorsi dopo mezzanotte
E ci ridiamo ancora
E ci piangiamo ancora qua
E non c’è un’altra cosa più vera
E più bella di questa
Fanculo tutto, questi sono i nostri anni

I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri anni
I nostri anni
Questi sono i nostri
