Did you like it? We already talked about tarantella (because our teachers in NonPlida classes are also musician, did you know?) and other old Italian folk music. But Conte, a famous blues singer, wrote other well known songs for Adriano Celentano.

Discover this famous song that was a hit in the Seventies, sang by the famous Lucio Battisti

We can practice some verbs of Indicativo presente, too. Can you recognize them in this song?
