videoclip ufficiale Canusìa Mamma mamma damme cento lir

The videoclip of Canusìa “Mamma mamma damme cento lire” was produced in April 2015 after three and a half days of tiring work between the towns San Felice Circeo and Sermoneta (Latina province). It was presented at the “Anna Magnani” cinema in San Felice Circeo on June 9th 2015. The protagonist Federica Cristofari, after missing the bus of life, makes a daring journey by bicycle into a dreamlike dimension: a businessman on a unicycle, a fairy, a bride who runs away with a priest, a dead man who wakes up and finally the terrible bus driver who throws away the key to the means to achieve happiness. The mocking destiny represented by those imaginary lines, the borders, are drawn with lucid malice by man. The journey is a subversive choice, which represents a real revolution for those who travel or emigrate, when fleeing from difficult living conditions. New ways of living are acquired, new smells, a new language is spoken and new loves are born, without forgetting, however, one’s origins. “Nobody can stop the pursuit of happiness”. The song “Mamma mamma damme cento lire” is a reworking and reinterpretation of a song collected by Graziella Di Prospero in Sezze (LT) in the ’70s and published by Fonit Cetra on the album “AEIOU, alla scola nce voglio i’più” (Cetra – LPP 307 ). The song is one of the many versions of the famous emigration song “Mamma mamma damme cento lire”. It was probably already written in the 19th century but it spread with mass emigration in the early 20th century, when the phenomenon assumed epochal proportions. This version, collected in Sezze (Latina province, Italy), has some peculiar characteristics in the text and in the music. The description of the dismemberment of “Rosina’s” body by fish seems to have little comparison with other versions of the song. “Mamma mamma damme cento lire” – official video clip Canusìa – Folk music of Lazio (Italy). www.canusia.it.
