Questo piccolo grande amore - Claudio Baglioni
Questo piccolo grande amore -  Claudio Baglioni



Questo piccolo grande amore is a song written and performed by Claudio Baglioni, released as the first single from the album This little love. The song was arranged by Tony Mimms, while the single was produced by Antonio Coggio.

It is universally recognized as one of the most significant pieces of the Baglioni and important career, as well as a classic of Italian pop music.

The text of this little love tells the love story of two young and regret on the part of the male character who is far from his girlfriend (listening to the album, we understand that the distance is due to military service). The song was hit by censorship, which forced the singer to make some changes to the text, which is why the version recorded on 45 rpm verse "fear and desire to be naked" became "the fear and the desire to be alone" while "hands more and more anxious to forbidden things" became "increasingly anxious hands, wet shoes." This version of the album, though, the song retains the original text. As told repeatedly Paola Massari, first wife of the singer, the text was inspired by Baglioni from the birth of their love story; and the famous black shirt was fine.

The 45s entered the ranking of best-selling singles in Italy November 25, 1972, debuting at 10th place. Baglioni for this was already a very good result, given that so far his greatest hit was Brother Sun Sister Moon, who had not gone beyond the thirty-first position.After three weeks of stay in the top ten, December 16, 1972, this little love instead reached the top position, displacing The Godfather, single of Santo & Johnny who kept atop the standings for several weeks.  The song remained in 1st place for six weeks, which was followed by another twelve in which the individual is alternated between the second and third positions. At the end of the 45s He scored a total of twenty-one weeks in the top ten, proving to be the fourth best-selling single of the year,  behind Crocodile Rock by Elton John (first place), Patty Pravo Pazza idea (second place) and the March gardens Lucio Battisti (third place).

According to statistics from research carried hitparadeitalia.it site, this little love song proved to be the most sold in the history of Italian discography. The research was carried out taking into account all the discs (single, album, compilation) in which the song appeared, and all versions (original, cover, remix) in which it was registered.

Sabato Pomeriggio - Claudio Baglioni
Sabato Pomeriggio - Claudio Baglioni



Sabato Pomeriggio is the sixth album by Claudio Baglioni, published in 1975 by the Italian RCA.

After this little love and Turn that turns you love beautiful, Baglioni affects again a concept album where every song shows from different perspectives in the same state of mind. After Vangelis, Claudio collaborates another guru of music, arranger Luis Enrique Bacalov, which colors the album of sounds and effects can give the optimal scenario to the stories. Saturday afternoon is the tenth best-selling album of 1975.

Besides the title song famous, the other songs follow each other on the same theme, which is that of waiting Leopardi, evident in Wait (which begins with the word "sparrow" which returns in the famous song); largest in ... and wait; Posters in the subway where the wait detonates the desire to "go away"; in 21X, where the protagonist is hoping for an unlikely win the football pools; in Sixtus V (song tied to a theatrical experience of the young Claudio), in Roman dialect, where even expects "a pope mijore"; in lamp Osram, where a girl is waiting in vain for a guy on a first date. In other songs instead this issue is less obvious: in Carillon (a visit to his grandmother) the famous sound reminds youth there and maybe the old lady waiting for death; in Doremifasol it has a simple but profound statement of love, but falls in the middle of the disk that is all a wait of "sparrow"; Misurina Lake takes us into a fairy-tale, telling the legend spread in the Venetian resort, on the birth of this lake at the foot of Mount Sorapiss, also derived from waiting in vain for a girl. It takes part in the Coroanaroma, choir of the Roman section of the National Alpini Association, directed by Lamberto Pietropoli, a unique example of baglioniano repertoire. Rounding out the picture Arise Giuseppe average worker dedicated to the man waiting for a better life but does little to conquistarsela, and intemezzo That's it, that speaks of children playing to large, waiting to grow up for real.

... And wait it is sung by the vocal group founded by Edoardo De Angelis, the Schola Cantorum.

Posters describes waiting in a bus stop of the Roman Metro perhaps in the first winter of the same 1975. It appears from the text and from the description of the details that the stop is Via Cavour (Line B), and that the time specified in the text makes assume that the protagonist awaits the special train then serving on the Line B to directly connect Rome with Ostia (direct Trains Terms-Lido, abolished in 1987). This would also explain the long wait filled by the minute description of the pavement opposite to the protagonist. Posters of music is very similar to that of Valsinha, a song by Chico Buarque de Hollanda, which was sung by Mia Martini.

Deserves an explanation of the title of Osram lamp: on the occasion of the 1960 Olympics was installed [2] in Rome in Piazza dei Cinquecento in front of Termini Station with a lamppost at Osram xenon lamp 2,500,000 lumens and 75 kW of power, supremacy global period for a single lamp. Soon it became a place for rendezvous, as happens to the protagonist of the song; especially in this song is clearly a certain crepuscular of the Baglioni style, describing the tiniest details the environment outside the station ( "a suitcase back, another goes away", "that those four faces jail over coupe" ), and the same characteristic can be noted in the text of Carillon.

The hard part in the guitars Little Tony's brother, Enrico Ciacci.

The sound engineer is Franco Finetti (who also plays in a song, 21X), while the cover is taken from a drawing by Antonio Dojmi (from an idea by Paola Massari); the original edition of the album has a blue inner casing, with a poem by Baglioni entitled Wait (which amplifies the theme ..and wait, through a series of object complements and some subordinate clauses referring to the same infinitive verb and He closes with "waiting for you" referring to the title song.
