Persa (Lost) is the story of a soldier who comes back from the war to find that his love is lost forever. Dio dei Padri Nostri (God of Our Fathers) is a prayer and it is my version of Lord’s Prayer. A Te (To You) is a passage composed in honor of my oncle Emilio, the memory of the joy of life and and of his good heart. Nuvole (Clouds) is a mountain song, see also this version in choir section. Gemme del tuo cuore (Gems of Your Heart) is an unrequited love toward an angel here on the heart. It is what we feel in vain for the person we desire.
