    notice some of the old maps; Calabria was called Italia and Salento was Calabria :)

    ... some scholars say the Griko is Medieval, but others say it was passed down by Magna Grecia.

    If the scholars cannot agree, maybe it's a combination of the two,

    ... some say that the Medieval Greeks went to live in the Griko towns where a form of Ancient Greek was still spoken.

    Famous Italian anti-war folk song: Gorizia tu sei maladetta with English subtitles




    Anna Magnani singing a famous Neapolitan World War I song in a soldiers' hospital ward. Massimo Ranieri is playing the guitar.
    The Soldier in Love-written by a soldier at the front in World War I

    You are far away from this heart
    I fly to you in my mind
    I hope and want nothing more
    than always keeping you by my side!
    Are you sure about this love
    As I am sure that I love you


    Oh life, oh my life...
    Oh heart of this heart...
    You were the first love...
    and the first and last you will be for me!


    How many nights have I not seen you
    not felt you in my arms,
    not kissed your face,
    not held you tight in my arms?!
    But, waking from these dreams,
    you make me cry for you...


    Oh life, oh my life...
    Oh heart of this heart...
    You were the first love...
    and the first and last you will be for me!


    Write forever and be happy:
    I can only think of you...
    One thought comforts me,
    you only think of me...
    The most beautiful woman in the world,
    is never more beautiful than you!


    Oh life, oh my life...
    Oh heart of this heart...
    You were the first love...
    and the first and last you will be for me!


    Oh life, oh my life...
    Oh heart of this heart...
    You were the first love...
    and the first and last you will be for me!


    Oh life, oh my life...
    Oh heart of this heart...
    You were the first love...
    and the first and last you will be for me!


    Magnani turns it into an anti-war song just with her performance. She was a genius.



    The Massimo Ranieri version in his native Napoli-the way it was normally sung. He's wonderful too.


    Non si fa il proprio dovere perchè qualcuno ci dica grazie, lo si fa per principio, per se stessi, per la propria dignità. Oriana Fallaci

    every culture has its drinking song / stornelli (personalized story telling song)
    ... usually sung at the end of an event:

    ... I would like to thank this Masseria (Farm / Estate), now I will sing you the Cuccurucù ... :)



    cuccurucú = ... birds chirping, I think.
