What makes Sidoti different from most of those who sing, write songs or do both? To tell the truth, I'm not absolutely sure but I suppose it's his face and his ethnic and cultural origins. Piero knows lots but he doesn't tell everything in one go; he starts off a long way away like all those who come from the far side of mystery, and can talk about a Brazilian whore who works between Gorizia and Fiume and lives with a little monkey that spends its time shelling peanuts and marrow seeds. I don't know if you've realised by now that I'm faced with a truly different phenomenon here, with eyes that smell more than they see and ears deliberately designed to listen to mysterious sunsets or sunrises across the sea.
