This video is an extract from a theatre show dedicated to a famous Italian songwriter, Franco Califano, in 2013. So, here is some true live Italian singing.
The show has been performed several times in Italy, and is completely in Italian. This very performance happens in Bari, in the prestigious Teatro Forma.
The whole cast was made by three people: Actor/Narrator (Fabio Giacobbe), Singer/Performer (Cristina Siciliano), Pianist (Alberto Iovene).
The song played in this piece is a cover of Minuetto, a very famous song written by Califano for Mina, the beloved Italian performer.
This song is about the struggle of being unable to get rid of an unhealthy relationship. A struggle that comes back every night, a struggle that brings melancholy in the heart… A struggle you can hear since the very first piano notes.
