This album offers us a collection of songs written by or for Pietro Gori (1865-1911), the Italian anarchist and poet.
Perhaps Gori's most famous poem is "Addio a Lugano", a farewell song written from the perspective of an exhiled anarchist. In this song, Gori's words describe the way that anarchists were arrested and driven from their lands for promoting peace, fighting oppression, and spreading ideals of love.
