'L'indiano' by Fabrizio De André turns 40

: it was July 21, 1981 when the Genoese singer-songwriter released his tenth studio album, which entered the history of Italian music also for its famous cover.

The original title of the work in fact bore the name and surname of the artist, but was renamed by virtue of the Native American, riding a horse and with the gun in hand, which stands out there.

This is the portrait 'The Outlier', made in 1909 by the American painter Frederic Remington. The album - written with the collaboration of Massimo Bubola and released about a year and a half after the kidnapping of which De André himself was the protagonist, together with his then partner Dori Ghezzi - intertwines the issues of the American West with the themes of the dramatic experience of the kidnapping, which took place at the hands of the kidnapping company.

The history of the people of

Sardinia

, towards which De André will never bear a grudge, and that of the American

Indians

are retraced in parallel, bringing to light differences but also similarities, starting from the colonization of which both peoples were victims. 'What I don't have', 'Supramonte', 'Ave Maria', 'The song of the shepherd servant' are the titles of some of the most famous lyrics contained in the album.
