Laura Pausini, from girl to woman (and warrior) in Sant Jordi

The gentle young woman who won in San Remo in 1993 gave way to the scarred lady without losing her smile, fighting life and spectacle: great turnouts, vocal bellows, manuscripts on values ​​and survival Laura Pausini is indeed an artist as much as a person, and we know all Something almost about her emotional autobiography and at her concerts she can empty herself into a powerful song and a minute later share the family video in which she announces to her husband (Paolo Carta, guitarist and band manager) and triumphantly flaunts her wedding ring.


And what can be cheesy and cloying gives it a strange air of nature. She berates herself for making the mistake of approaching him Así celeste al piano (“I feel like shit”), improvises a happy birthday to a fan and combines colloquialism with invisibility: “Oh my God, how many people are we”, “Colons, what's tonight”.

About forty songs, some of which are compiled into those medleys that might irritate most coffee drinkers but work to great effect. For all that, the session was anything but linear, with the ever-eager Bossini rocking us with 2000s disco landmarks (Surrender) and reveling in her romantic frenzy (I'll Never Leave); Who wove some verses in tribute to Rafaela Cara and reproduced the hand gesture to “ask for help against violence against women” in Yo sí (a song he composed with hitmaker Diane Warren).


Despite all this, Bossini, the divine neighbor and slave girl, is still for the common people the young woman whose heart is broken by a petty man named Marco (the episode evoked in La Soledad). But how could the world be so cruel and treacherous? Laura, neither forget nor forgive.
