Track listing

All tracks written by Fabrizio De André, except where noted.


  • "Il gorilla" is a translated version of the Georges Brassens' song "Le Gorille". It is about a gorilla which, escaped from its cage, loses his virginity after deciding to rape a judge instead of an old woman. The story is ultimately used to convey a message against death penalty.
  • "S'i' fosse foco" is based on the LXXXVI satirical sonnet of the Rime (Rhymes), written by Italian medieval poet Cecco Angiolieri.
  • "Nell'acqua della chiara fontana" is a translated version of the Georges Brassens' song "Dans l'eau de la claire fontaine".
  • "Il re fa rullare i tamburi" is a translated version of the French traditional song of the 14th century, "Le roi a fait battre tambour", which had been recorded in its native language by Yves Montand in 1959.
