ligabue, the words from the stage

The rocker took center stage announcing his performance with The salt of the earth And Screaming at the sky: “Ten years ago I wrote a piece on the effects of the world’s oldest drug. The oldest drug in the world is not chemical, it is mental and it is the lust for power. In general, those who have the most want the most and often, like almost any drug addict, are capable of anything in order not to go into withdrawal symptoms”.
The artist continued: ”Faced with the overdoses of a certain power, the abuses of which it is capable, another power is needed, that of making your voice heard and not allowing anyone, for example, to try to cancel your history and rewrite it as they please, not to allow anyone to try to take away your right to love, of course, always in a consensual way, but to love whoever you like, however you like, as much as you like and start whatever family you like and maybe be able to support her with a decent salary”:
Finally, the singer concluded: “This is a piece about the toxicity of that power that wears even those who have it.”
At the end of the performance Luciano Ligabue met the parents of Lorenzo Parelli, the young boy who died at the age of 18 during the school-work alternation.
