3 stars It's a pity that the irruption of Locanda delle Fate into the Italian Symphonic was too late and so they could only gave us this album.

The first three tracks are the best ones and show us a fine and solid work of all the members of the band. (By the way, is not very common a band with seven players, two in the keyboards, like "Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso"). The music is rich and full of delicate sounds, driven by the keyboards and a very characteristic guitar with great influence of Genesis and Yes (I guess that the boys on the guitars have listened the album "Going For The One" a couple of times..). The rest of the album is not so inspired and is easy to find some chords that appear repeatedly, with the exception of "Vendesi saggezza", a song that is a wonderful closing for the album, with a complex mixture of great sounds. Nevertheless, the last three and a half minutes of the song were unnecessary, and without them the song would have been better.

The lyrics deserve a special mention. They are very good, like in other bands of this genre, specially the title track, "Profumo di colla bianca" and "Vendesi saggezza".

The band sounds very different form PFM and BMS, and this is something that enriches and widens the offer of the genre. Recommended for the lovers of the Symphonic Prog.
