Franti - Il Lungo Addio Review [more on::] - However, the musical side of the Franti story is what I mostly care to tell. In July we presented "Il Lungo Addio". The CD was included in a re-press of "Non Classificato". The latter came out in 1992 as double LP and it was the summae of the whole production of the group, plus unpublished tracks. It was edited by Blu Bus, a label grown out from a collaboration between Franti and Kina. Blu Bus published their albums, other bands' works (above all the awesome "Scimmie" by Panico) and side projects. "Il Lungo Addio" was recorded in 1992 but it remained unpublished for a long time. Here we have only Lalli, Vanni Picciuolo and Massimo D'Ambrosio from the original band, together with Beppe Saroglia and Giancarlo Biolatti. The tracklist contained six unreleased tracks and a cover of Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale". In that period someone would say that using the name 'Franti' could sound totally anachronistic. So, Lalli and Stefano Giaccone started to produce new tracks calling themselves Environs and Howth Castle, often playing with Kina. The same, they sounded like Franti, even using other names. The state of mind is what really matters.

In their songs there's always a recurring element, such as an Ariadne's thread, allowing us to leave safely a labyrinth made of words in which center there's Lalli. The first piece of this ball of yarn is "Le Loro Voci", from "Luna Nera". It's the first song written by Lalli. She was inspired by Sabra and Shatila massacre in Lebanon. Here there are pictures of mothers searching for antidotes together with their children, stories of escaping from that boundless horror that seems strangely distant. There's a phrase in particular which seems to be not related to war: “you wake up in a dream / you tell me to sleep, look at the time / a line erase your face / your voice is so light". This is the real tragedy indeed: those who awake in a dream are condamned to live out a nightmare. In "Ogni Giorno" (out of "Il lungo Addio") Lalli talks about the end of the days, for nature as a whole and not for all the people. She sais: “I don't sleep not to lose time, and the suffocated freedom", and then this cruel trouble is clearly showed off, the music stressing her struggle; "I sat down, my back to the sky / the day is coming up / everybody sit down, the backs to the wall / I am born and dead every day". Days gone by and exhausting life routines are often recalled by Franti (to me these are well represented by the image of the factory). The wind is the main metaphor of freedom, as the title of her first solo work says. I want to mention also the song called "Testa Storta" out of her second album "All'Improvviso Nella Mia Stanza": just before the closure of the song Lalli says “The tilted head / burning by thirst / confused shoulders / in a bigger land / the hand seems to dance / among the vineyards and lavender / inside the woods that seems to be a whole with the sea when you look by the carwindow". She tells us about a journey made of waiting and of uncertainty. At the foundation there's the will to search for something new, and no place for fear. Something capable to free and comfort at the same time. The track represents the perfect example of the state of searching itself. It was written by Lalli and Pietro Salizzoni, who decided to compose together - with great results we must say - in a particular moment of outbreak of Lalli's life, as she mentioned in a recent interview. The pair did not leave us as much productions as one's would have hoped for. However, it's the intensity of the songs - and their echo in time - that matters. That's the band Franti's lesson indeed.

This is just an interpretation, just a personal point of view. I can't say if it's the right one. I think that when I'm true and when I'm able to refuse some rationality, reaching for the wind without being dragged away, I feel I am Franti. All of us could be him.
