Paolo Conte Quotes
I am not suffering for the downfall of our literary gusto. As I always say, if you have to speak about being poetical, it has to be conceded not only to the literary field, but also to music. Music must be poetic, interpretation must be poetic, the relationship established with the public must be poetic. What is disturbing with writing, a part of the scarce plasticity of the italian language, is that many times, writing in oneself language, one picks the words that give absolute certainty: and this certainty sometimes is annoying, because the artistic dream is very abstract.
Sure, sometimes the cake turns out good, you really used the words that couldn't be changed with others. But in other cases the words control you: the artistic discourse is made of doubts, influences.
