  • *Lucio Dalla is an Italian singer. He died yesterday at the age of 69.

    Treviso (Italia) - Premantura (Yugoslavia).
    July 1980
    Close to the border.
    The trunk is full of things for camping.
    I'm five, my brother is eight years old. The kayaks are "knotted" on the top of our car and we keep the paddles almost between the teeth.
    Mom puts her feet, bare, on the dashboard of the car. She opens the car window.
    She hums softly a song by Lucio Dalla.
    She looks at him - my dad - and smile.
