Claudio Baglioni …

Claudio Baglioni

Claudio Baglioni, born 16 May 1951, is an Italian pop singer-songwriter and musician. He is considered one of the greatest songwriters/singers (“cantautori”) in Italy and one of the greatest figures in Italian musica leggera (pop music).

His success has spanned through several decades. His melodic and highly dramatic love ballads, especially from the 1970s era (such as “Questo piccolo grande amore”, “E tu…”, “Amore bello”, “Sabato pomeriggio”, “E tu come stai”) are part of Italy’s musical and national culture.

Summer Holiday – Stage 7 – The Italian Job

Today we are in Italy. They say that all roads lead to Rome and that is exactly where we find ourselves. Shirley Valentine has emailed Watkins to say she can no longer meet with him in Athens. This comes as a bit of a blow but a couple of stiff drinks later and he’s well over it. We decided to stay here an extra day and give Athens the elbow.

So, here is the Italian National Anthem. Watkins, play the music if you please. We will remain seated on the tour bus, eat our cornettos and watch Italian women.
