4 stars 01. Prologue Classical, classical music all! Interesting. violin solando much, I felt an influence of Vivaldi in the violin, which makes everything even more interesting. The next to voice synthesizers also provide a different touch. An incessant melody broken until .... ours, a melodious guitar and keyboard doing to bridge the voice even more beautiful. In the first theme returns to the flute appears to enhance further the theme, Jethro Tull? Influence total.

02. Un Villaggio, Un'illsione What I talked about the Vivaldi is further confirmed here. Only this time mixed with the Rock (and well before heavy!) The voice and could not fail to be Italian in the bands are very well sung, the very language gives a taste of most everything. The second part reminded me something I do not know and explain but it is very good, and once again the influence of Ian Anderson on flute, which is fine (Jethro Tull).

03. Realtà The classical guitar renaissance is that voice takes on the issue (along with the flute). The violin with wha wha was interesting and also the piano, in general the sound of the guys Quelle Vecchia Locanda is very classic.

04. Immagini Sfuocate This starts psychedelic, strange sounds. Why then make a show of Rock / Psycho, with fuzz guitars and drums devastated. Short amend it in that ...

05. Il Cieco The various vocal jazz piano and give the tone that follows in style. In the second duel of the violin and flute, you need more?? Keyboards and various traditional flutes. This is extremely beautiful. And once again the second most rock, and again pro Psicodélico.

06. Dialogo Synthesisers excellent. Instrumental even better. Duplicates the vocals near the piano, moogs strangers. Of trash!

07. Verso La Locanda Piano and violin, hit the weight attached to classic, one of the first bands to do that. The timbre of guitar music that are heavy for the progressive patterns of the time, gives a whole charm, serious and well- marked low, Romualdo Coletta has beautiful lines in that song.

08. Sogno, Risveglio And ... This here is classical piano total, Massimo Roselli is worthy of concert. Are still added to the mixture violin and flute, this is classical music from beginning to end! And if anyone cares? Of course not, but soon enter the smooth voice of Giorgio Giorgi (owner of flutes, too)!

This disc is almost classical music, wonderful musicians and music idem. When I heard I was in doubt that he was recorded in 1972, I find it very 'fresh' face again! Excellent!
