Cotton summer dresses, a tattoo of Joan of Arc and the name of a 18th century Queen. Maria Antonietta, born Letizia Cesarini, is the most interesting new voice in Italy’s female punk-rock scene. Her stories combine the everyday adventures of a 20-something girl with eccentric, cultured references.
While her debut album was populated by heroines and saints, in her new record she turns her attention from the past to even wider horizons, with metaphors related to nature, space and the passing of time. In the song “Abbracci” (“Hugs”), she tells about that moment in your life when you stop throwing stones and you start collecting them.
