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 »

Stelle, già dal tramonto, 
si contendono il cielo a frotte, 
luci meticolose 
nell'insegnarti la notte. 

Un asino dai passi uguali, 
compagno del tuo ritorno, 
scandisce la distanza 
lungo il morire del giorno. 

Ai tuoi occhi, il deserto, 
una distesa di segatura, 
minuscoli frammenti 
della fatica della natura. 

Gli uomini della sabbia 
hanno profili da assassini, 
rinchiusi nei silenzi 
d'una prigione senza confini. 

Odore di Gerusalemme, 
la tua mano accarezza il disegno 
d'una bambola magra, 
intagliata del legno. 

"La vestirai, Maria, 
ritornerai a quei giochi 
lasciati quando i tuoi anni 
erano così pochi." 

E lei volò fra le tue braccia 
come una rondine, 
e le sue dita come lacrime, 
dal tuo ciglio alla gola, 
suggerivano al viso, 
una volta ignorato, 
la tenerezza d'un sorriso, 
un affetto quasi implortato. 

E lo stupore nei tuoi occhi 
salì dalle tue mani 
che vuote intorno alle sue spalle, 
si colmarono ai fianchi 
della forma precisa 
d'una vita recente, 
di quel segreto che si svela 
quando lievita il ventre. 

E a te, che cercavi il motivo 
d'un inganno inespresso dal volto, 
lei propose l'inquieto ricordo 
fra i resti d'un sogno raccolto.
