Fabrizio De André

No doubt many of you have seen Sunday night's tribute on RAI 3 TV to the famous singer songwriter. But you can also read about him in English on the Weekend Financial Times web site. There's a highly complimentary piece about De André by the British journalist Tobias Jones. Read more...

Tobias Jones is perhaps best known for his book, "The Dark Heart Of Italy", on Italian society and politics since World War II. You should find a copy in the English section of Feltrinelli, or in any of the numerous English language bookshops in Rome. There's also Amazon, of course.

Please do leave a comment or a message on the Tag Board.
And more soon.

I agree with journalist's opinion: it's strange Andrè isn't known abroad, as He' s one of most rapresentative singer of italian culture, a singer who used get into a such poetry and softness human miseries.
In any case i prefer Guccini (by the way, his concert will be on friday, in Roma!)
