One of Jannacci’s biggest hits, the album contains the eponymous single Vengo anch’io. No, tu no (co-written with Dario Fo and Fiorenzo Fiorentini), which reached the top of the Italian sales charts.
Other successful tracks on the album are:
Giovanni telegrafista, the lyrics of which are a translation of Brazilian poet Cassiano Ricardo’s João, o telegrafista, which tells the story of an anonymous telegrapher from a remote town who sees love pass by for a brief moment (in the form of a young woman who will then leave that place forever to pursue a life in the city) only to remember it with melancholy for the rest of his life.
Ho visto un re, to a text by Dario Fo, a sarcastic mockery of power, whose interests are always at the expense of ordinary people.
La disperazione della pietà, cover of a song by Vinícius de Moraes, whose text, with its list of despairs, anticipates Quelli che…
Hai pensato mai, language version of a song from Veneto written by Lino Toffolo.
La mia morosa la va alla fonte was part of the 1965 show 22 canzoni; the music was used by Fabrizio De André for his Via del Campo.
All texts originally in Portuguese were translated by the writer Ruggero Jacobbi, who had lived and taught in Brazil.
