Candida? But where is it??? they says province of Avellino,
among the hills of the Irpinia... and then how to rinunce the idea of such a adventure?
Because it was really an adventure: by car on disconnected backstreets through small unknown countries with the inviting and fanciful names... how many names... All the names... except Candida, so much to doubt of its real existence. The branduardian star is hard however to be darkened (and the road poster always have also a certain logic) so, the cry of joy to the sight of the very craved name has turned the compact car into a small meteor. Not only it really exist, Candida has a delicious "piazzetta" to dress vivaciously for the summer evenings and a heterogeneous public that has welcomed and followed Angelo with unbelievable enthusiasm. Songs sung together with him, lived with "goose bumps" as in the case of "Il Funerale" or to dance with standing arms at every hit inflicted to the more and more resigned battery by the energetic Ragazzoni. In short: another great success of public and of "criticism"; -)
Note of backstage: Angelo has just begun the arpeggio of "La luna", the colleagues musicians are picked up in an intense and low choir behind the scenes and David has articulated with his hand the harmony of the notes... It's impressive to catch the "employees" in moments like this and to discover that they are not addicted to the routine of the concerts, only apparently similar each other.
Fresh beautiful evening.
