Song of The Week

This week's song is by legendary singer-songwriter Edoardo Bennato. To give you some idea of how long he's been around for, one of my favourite Italian songs of all-time is by him, Il gatto e la volpe. It was released in 1977, nine years before I was born. This is his latest single, La mia città.

What about posting "Un giorno credi", "Non farti cadere le braccia" or "Una settimana un giorno" with an english translation of the lyrics?

Words conveyed some meaning those days.

Cheers,
Geppetto

P.S. un po' di allegria napoletana per tutti:

Ciao Geppetto, thanks for the song! Song translations are something I've been thinking about for a while, maybe in the future :)
