5 stars Sognando e Risognando is the third album of Formula 3 after Dies Irae and the eponymous Formula 3 (1970 and 1971).

It does show the influence of the Italian prog rock culture. Albero Radius was a fill in for Franco Mussida of the PFM while he was busy with his military service. Some of the PFM musicians will later participate in the group Il Volo,

The album is influenced by the psychedelic culture of the late 1960's as the listener who understands Italian might reduce from the lyrics.

Sognando e Risognando is a description of a trip away from the city in the company of a much coveted female, a week-end dedicated to exploration of human attraction and desire and the perils of it. Lust and excitement often is followed by disappointment and ennui, and the structure of the music does interpret well this common pendulum of human emotions.

L'Ultima Foglia is the description of angst and resolution, anxiety and final acceptance. It has a classical structure borrowed from symphonies and concerts of the late 1800's.

Recording quality is superior and stands the test of time: on a system with low distortion, full range and high power it shows the true color of high quality tecording and mastering.
