I have been working on Pigmento Music songs for many years, since lost and long gone days of my youth, the nineties. Back in time, I see myself as a young guy frenetically writing and re-writing plots I had in mind.
It could be a song, a movie, a video, a letter. Everything I could write on a train, on a bus, at home. I still put pen to paper, whatever the purpose.
It still makes sense to me. Pigmento Music is the direct result of my efforts. I never could have made it without the help of all the people who believed in my music and my songwriting.

Morning Flowers This song has so many sources of inspiration. I wrote it after realizing that a flower could bloom after a long time buried in the ground. It always finds its way to bloom. I saw it with my eyes one day during my daily walk in the countryside. I knew those flowers were buried in the ground, but I did not expect one year later to see them bloom exactly in the same place. This was definitely the best song to sing with Fien, for a couple of reasons. She loves that song and she brought into it her energy. This version differs from the one we recorded for Come into View ep. This version was filmed, sung and played there, at this secret pace, while we were in Trieste to shoot the video of Come into View. There weren’t prior rehearsals. It was natural. Like morning flowers blooming.
Art director: Fien Hieronymus. Filmed and edited by Giuseppe Piras. Based on an idea by Filippo Barizza and Fien Hieronymus. Locations: Venice, Cittadella, Muggia and Trieste special thanks to the Bossi Family of the castle of Muggia
Cherry trees are what I consider to be the start of the spring. I observe them since my childhood and I never get tired of them. Through this video, I tried to tell their seasonal life, from flowers to fruits. I made it after shooting several moments between April and June.
Ciliegio is an instrumental song about the delicacy and the transience of cherry trees, my first childhood friends. Cherry trees (ciliegi in Italian) have always been part of my life and I am happy I grew up surrounded by very huge cherry trees planted almost 80 years ago by my grandfather. I spent my spring days with them, jumping, embracing, hurting them. They suddenly died, one by one, after some thunderstorms hitting the country few years ago. I like to think that they missed me and my sister playing with them, as we were growing old and almost forgetting about magic of spring.
It Never Comes To An End is the second song played and filmed at Openland Radio sessions, a song about ever travelling wishful thinking.
Consider This is one of the oldest songs I composed and the only one that was not changed so much over the years. I remembered being obsessed with the music of the Red House Painters and wanted the lyrics to be as much confessional as I could. Song is actually aboung being in connection again with the world outside.
