about

The old Livio, a wine maker met in Ticino at the border between Switzerland and Italy. The man is strong and generous. Exchanging a few words at night after working in the field with me. A precious moment as life can give.

lyrics

"Le vieux Livio"

Dans la montagne à Brissago
Vit Livio de Ticino
Son raisin, rouge ou brun
Il en fait du vin, du bon vin!

Tout près de là vit Donna Licia
Un joli sourire venant de Cuba
Quant à Athos, le beau mousquetaire
C'est d'Haïti d'où est son père, doué son père!

Une maison de bric à brac
Dans la nuit craque
Dans le salon des cornes de bison
Un vieux piano et des chapeaux, des vieux chapeaux!

Un vieux sabre, un cor de chasse
Un vieux poulet et des jouets
Quand la pluie tombe, c'est Livio qui chante
Car son raisin devient tout brun, il devient tout brun!

Dans la montagne à Brissago
Vivait le vieux Livio de Ticino
Son raisin, rouge ou brun
Il en faisait du vin, du bon vin!
