At the sound of the orchestra that leads us through the events of Pierino, the face of Branduardi comes alive.
...Once it is carefree Pierino walking across the woods following with eyes the flight of birds; once is the "poor, stupid" gabbling duck attempting to escape, but in vain, from the wolf; once is the wise and gruff grandfather that gives instructions to Pierino to become a good hunter, once is the crafty cat, to whom nothing escapes ... and then becomes the evil wolf that is finally caught. Everything ends with the triumphant notes of the march accompanying Pierino. Branduardi, as always, has enchanted his audience. At the end of the evening, with a great applause, the final surprise: the universal notes of "Alla Fiera dell'Est" and "la pulce d'acqua" arranged by the orchestra. It's an apotheosis!
