Think of a summer evening and a few good friends. Add a house in the Apennines, a BBQ and some flowers collected in the fields. Add a TV and Italy playing. Then Italy wins. The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” should resonate in my head, but I can’t stop humming Gianna Nannini’s “Estate Italiana” (better known as “Notti Magiche” – transl.: Magical Nights) instead. I think it’s because even though the years pass and the people who peep into our lives change, summer evenings watching football matches with friends are just that to me: magical nights.
