But there are many groups that have been able to produce discs with personal elements, thanks to the use of warm Mediterranean sounds, typical traditional classicisms and, above all, an Italian feeling, a touch that distinguishes the product.

Intorno Alla Mia Cattiva Educazione is, as usual then, a concept album based on a representation initially conceived for the theater, but which lent itself perfectly to recording standards. Two long suites, broken up into a total of 13 movements, which tell the story of a puppet. The path of the protagonist sees a first phase in which a bad, severe and extremely bigoted upbringing wanted, in fact, like a puppet in the hands of his manipulators. The story develops later with the various attempts to free themselves from that state of heavy constraint, up to the physical and mental liberation towards a normal existence. -Sioulette, debaser
