"Principe di un giorno" is the first and only album by Celeste, a Ligurian group born from the ashes of Il Sistema, a band with a considerable potential that, however, never managed to release a proper LP. Recorded between 1974 and the following year, "Principe di un giorno" was only published in '76, kept in the drawer by a label that kept saying they were waiting for the right time to release it, just to put it in the stores at the wrong moment!

The almost non-existent consideration ensued at the time, anyway, does not affect at all the beauty of what is considered an essential release of Italian prog music. The result of exhausting rehearsal sessions, musical research, continuous improvement of every single sound and arrangement, "Principe di un giorno" still retains today an incredible 'suspended' atmosphere outside of time and space, thanks to a perfect balance between the parts: acoustic guitar arpeggios, soft Mellotron music backgrounds, classical scores, flute and saxophone-based sections, delicate and ethereal voices, essential and never intrusive percussions.
