INTRO - COLPO DI MAGLIO (HAMMER-STROKE) : 1918
– The battle of Vittorio Veneto. The decisive effort to
put an end to a bloody war …
LA BALLATA DELL’ARDITO (THE BALLAD OF THE ARDITO)
: Major Renzi introduces himself with this bittersweet ballad…
The perfect portrait of a “Beautiful Loser”...
VITTORIA MUTILATA (MUTILATED VICTORY) : Treaty
of Paris: the delegates of the victorious nations, understimating
the Italian contribution and its tribute of blood, take some territorial
resolutions and assign Fiume and other lands to the Croatian jurisdiction...
DI NUOVO IN ARMI! (ARMED AGAIN!) : Rising against
the Italian Government which was forced to ratify the Treaty,
D’Annunzio and his Arditi conquer Fiume and occupy the “City
Of Life”, proclaiming the Free Republic. Major Renzi follows
his “Comandante” and is assigned to the Counter-Espionage
TANGO DELLA MENADE (TANGO OF THE MAENAD) : The
seducing Elettra Stavros introduces herself with a sensual and
gloomy tango: Major Renzi is enchanted by her performance against
his will …
SANGUE MORLACCO (MORLACHIAN BLOOD) : A “drunken”
song devoted to the celebrated cherry wine so cherished by D’Annunzio
and all Arditi … A tavern’s anthem.
PER NON DORMIRE (TO NOT SLEEP FOR) : Major Renzi
is torn apart because of his passion for Elettra… Love Vs.
Duty, Ideal Vs. Eros.
TRADITI (BETRAYED) : The Italian Army has been
given order to open the fire against the “Rebel Army”
of Fiume. D’Annunzio speaks to his Arditi for the last time.
The Dream is over.
FUOCO A FIUME (FIRE IN FIUME) : Elettra thinks
of Major Renzi in her prison and has a vision of the future.
MURI D’ASSENZIO (WALLS OF ABSINTHE) : The
ill-famed “Christmas Of Blood 1920”. Fiume is under
siege. Major Renzi and his troops put up a valiant resistance
– brothers Vs. brothers. He meets Elettra and kisses her
among the ruins, promising they will meet in Trieste after the
end of the crisis, to sail on and live a new existence in Argentina.
But the Fate is waiting for him...
OUTRO - AMOR SOLA LEX (LOVE THE ONLY LAW) : The
story comes to its end. Elettra will never see Renzi again, and
waits for him in vain. The years go by...
