ALMENO TU NELL’UNIVERSO by Daniela

During the Musica tour, Ignazio Boschetto performs two solo pieces.

Today I want to talk to you about “ALMENO TU NELL’UNIVERSO”.

ALMENO 01

This beautiful song, was written by Bruno Lauzi and  Maurizio Fabrizio , good Italian songwriters, and brought to success by Mia Martini.
Mia Martini was a very good singer, sister of Loredana Bertè, very close sisters, but diametrically different.

Mia was a very sensitive and even reserved person.
Thanks to her beautiful voice and her way of singing in 1973 she began her success at the age of 26. Unfortunately 10 years later she decides to retire from the scene, due to unfounded slander, perhaps the gossips started almost as a joke, but then the joke became heavy, unbearable, everyone said that Mia Martini brought bad luck to everyone and no one wanted to hear her sing any more , and no one engaged her to attend events.

In 1989 she returned to Sanremo with the new song “ALMENO TU NELL’UNIVERSO”, with which she was immediately successful.

Mia Martini’s life is full of ups and downs and unfortunately, on May 12th 1995, her body is found without life. The autopsy will establish that she died from an overdose of medicines, it will never be known if she deliberately took her life.

ALMENO 02

The video of Ignazio that I propose to you was recorded in Taormina.

Ignazio himself, presents the song with these words of his:

“And now the time has come to remember a great artist, who unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to know, because today she is gone, but a few months ago, on television I saw a fiction dedicated to her, and I stayed, as Gianluca says, stunned, sad, but happy to have known a little better this artist, to have known better her life, her dynamics, to such an extent that I also did a great research, and in everything I found about her, I arrived in my head  to a great message: – In the end there is no one able to judge other people, because we ourselves know how much we are worth, always.- (applause)

And this year I wanted to remember the great Mia Martini.”

Here is the text:

ALMENO TU NELL’UNIVERSO

Sai, la gente è strana
Prima si odia e poi si ama
Cambia idea improvvisamente
Prima la verità poi, mentirà
Continuamente
Scioccamente

Tu, tu che sei diverso
Almeno tu nell’universo
Non cambierai
Dimmi che, per sempre sarai sincero
E che mi amerai davvero,
di più, di più, di più

Sai, la gente è sola
Come può lei si consola
Per non far sì che la mia mente
Si perda in congetture, in paure
Inutilmente e poi per niente

Tu, tu che sei diverso
Almeno tu nell’universo
Un punto sei, che non ruota mai intorno a me
Un sole che splende per me soltanto
Come un diamante in mezzo al cuore

Tu, tu che sei diverso
Almeno tu nell’universo
Non cambierai
Dimmi che per sempre sarai sincero
E che mi amerai davvero di più, di più, di più.

Non cambierai
Dimmi che per sempre sarai sincero
E che mi amerai davvero

………di più.

ALMENO 03

And here is the meaning of the text:

AT LEAST YOU IN THE UNIVERSE

You know, people are weird
First you hate and then you love
Change your mind suddenly
First the truth then will lie
Continuously
Foolishly

You, you who are different
At least you in the universe
You will not change
Tell me that you will always be sincere
And that you will really love me,
more, more, more

You know, people are alone
How can she console herself
Not to let my mind
Lose yourself in conjecture, in fear
Useless and then for nothing.

You, you who are different
At least you in the universe
A point you are, that never revolves around me
A sun that shines for me only
Like a diamond in the middle of the heart

You, you who are different
At least you in the universe
You will not change
Tell me that you will always be sincere
And that you will really love me more, more, more.

You will not change
Tell me that you will always be sincere
And that you will really love me
………more.

ALMENO 05

And here is the video of Mia Martini.

Very sweet the interpretation of Mia Martini, but I can say that even our excellent Ignazio, has not betrayed the expectations. He didn’t upset the song, maintaining its rhythms and respecting the passion, he only interpreted it in a way more suited to his vocals.

And what about his initial commentary on the song? I read between the lines, a veiled (not very) reproach to those who believe they have the right to judge you, and with a few words to destroy your laboriously built career. (certainly a parallel with certain press and certain judges of Sanremo).

You sang with great feeling, Ignazio, thank you!
