koliko elegancije ima u ovoj pesmi, podseti me uvek na crni mermer i spokoj negde gde nema ni traga ni nade neuspehu, sve ce biti dobro, vazno je verovati! :)

Just a couple of considerations about the lyrics. First of all, the song is partially in the dialect of Naples, so translating it fully in English makes it less "powerful" than it is in the original mix of Italian and dialect. Then, consider that the author of the song was the great jazz songwriter Lucio Dalla, who was from Bologna, not from Naples, so it makes the song even more intense, since he had to study the dialect of another region to write down the feelings he felt when he had the occasion to sleep in the same hotel where Caruso the tenor passed his last nights. Caruso was in love with his young student and this inspired Dalla. Anyway Dalla never openly speaks of love, even if "voler bene" can only be translated with "to love" in English, since in Italian there is a strong difference between being in love (amare) and loving (voler bene), the second one referring to the love you feel toward a relative or a friend, but also to a partner BESIDE the "being in love with". So towards your wife, for example, you feel love and you feel in love with, since she's part of your life/family AND she's also the woman you are in love with. This slight difference is quite important, in my opinion, to interpret the meaning Dalla wanted to give to the song: the old Caruso feels the love you feel towards a wife, a partner-for-life for his young student, something deeper than just "i'm in love with you" and probably related to the fact that he was a lot older than she was and considered himself a kind of father-teacher-husband and felt the need of a "family love" more than the young people's love. Just my opinion.
