Below is the critical note on Marco Francini, present in the encyclopedia, edited by Federico Vacalebre taken from Il Mattino of 23 November 2005.
“Marco Francini is the son of Taranto as well as Gaber, of Viviani as well as De Andrè, of Modugno as well as Demetrio Stratos… tender even if bitter, polemical even if fantastic, chamber pop but also theater of the post-metropolitan absurd”.
