Italian Version


Side A) “1919”
Side B) “Disobbedisco!” (feat. Edoardo Sylos Labini)


Can IANVA stay silent during the Centenary of D'Annunzio's Fiume Endeavour?
The quick reply to this question takes the terse and archaic shape of a 7 inch vinyl, whose very same title, “1919”, explains and anticipates in itself both form and content.
A unique duet of IANVA male and female voices epitomizing the everlasting duality of unrealistic idealism and cynical fatalism which seems to characterize Italian national mood.
A contrast well summerized by the steady and loud voice of Il Comandante D'Annunzio in the B side, where he connects and embodies every dualism and complexity, as befits any self-respecting “deity” at the decisive moment.
The famous speech “Disobbedisco!” (“I disobey!”), an autenthic “psychic manifesto” of that amazing and incredible year - which IANVA never dared to touch although they gave the same title to their most-D'Annunzio inspired debut album – materializes at last.
And this happens thanks to the kind help of a new special friend and guest: actor Edoardo Sylos Labini who has been masterfully playing the role of Il Vate D'Annunzio on all Italian stages in the last decade.
