4 stars I think that this is a good album, though probably not the best of this band. The lyrics are interesting and probably you have to understand them to enjoy completely this work. The music is between their past masterpieces of the early seventies (for instance the instrumental "Al mercato delle pulci" and "Come una giostra") and the acoustic mood of Florian ("Un angelo"), though sometimes less inspired than their standards. Anyway, I think that this album is a excellent addition to any prog collection.

My favourite song of this album is "Il quadro", especially because of the lyrics. this is my effort to translate it.

IL QUADRO/THE PAINTING: Sitting in a café near Montmartre / With a glass in my hand I was leaving my thoughts / In that days I was feeling down / When suddenly a steady voice made me look up / Bonjour Monsieur, I've not been eating for days / Please, let me show you one of my paintings / That's the imagine of a man / That's the story of a life / Lost and found many times and lost again / One year has already passed from that strange meeting / And I'm still thinking to his wide eyes / To that sad smile that went out from the scarf / To his voice that's still planted in my mind / Bonjour Monsieur, I've not been eating for days / Please, let me show you one of my paintings / And I still remember that painting / The background red like fire / With only one butterfly in the middle.
