Piero Umiliani Quotes

My story begins right when the war ended. It was 1944 and I was seventeen years old and Italy was divided in half. The Nazis were in Bologna and the allies had just arrived in Florence and along with the Americans we played at all hours.
For us it was freedom in every sense of the word. After having suffered so many years of oppression we could eat as much as we wanted. I was paid for my music with suitcases full of food for my entire family. We could play and sing to the new freedom.
