Fabrizio De André

Fabrizio Cristiano De André (18 February 1940 - 11 January 1999) was an Italian singer-songwriter. Known for his sympathies towards anarchism, libertarism and pacifism, his songs often featured marginalized and rebellious people, gypsies, prostitutes and knaves, and attacked the Catholic Church hierarchy hypocrisies. Artistically active for almost 40 years and the author of thirteen studio albums, he is renowned for the quality of his lyrics and often considered a poet. He contributed to the valorization of the languages of Italy, most notably Ligurian and, to a lesser extent, Sardinian, Gallurese and Neapolitan. Following his early death several streets, places, parks, schools and public libraries were named after him. more »

Tutti morimmo a stento 
Ingoiando l'ultima voce 
Tirando calci al vento 
Vedemmo sfumare la luce

L'urlo travolse il sole 
L'aria divenne stretta 
Cristalli di parole 
L'ultima bestemmia detta

Prima che fosse finita 
Ricordammo a chi vive ancora 
Che il prezzo fu la vita 
Per il male fatto in un'ora

Poi scivolammo nel gelo 
Di una morte senza abbandono 
Recitando l'antico credo 
Di chi muore senza perdono

Chi derise la nostra sconfitta 
E l'estrema vergogna ed il modo 
Soffocato da identica stretta 
Impari a conoscere il nodo

Chi la terra ci sparse sull'ossa 
E riprese tranquillo il cammino 
Giunga anch'egli stravolto alla fossa 
Con la nebbia del primo mattino

La donna che celò in un sorriso 
Il disagio di darci memoria 
Ritrovi ogni notte sul viso 
Un insulto del tempo e una scoria

Coltiviamo per tutti un rancore 
Che ha l'odore del sangue rappreso 
Ciò che allora chiamammo dolore 
È soltanto un discorso sospeso
