paolo conte

i've just discovered the charming italian pianist, singer, composer, poet, lawyer, painter, etc... paolo conte.

sparring partner

his song, azzurro, which was later popularized by Adriano Celentano, was unofficially adopted as the official theme song of the fans of the world cup 2006 winning italian team.

paolo's playful version:

the italian footballers version:

i pretty much wanted anyone BUT italy to win the last world cup... but i wasnt too sad about having to *watch* those boys play so many games ;)
