Il Cielo in Una Stanza (A Room in the Sky) Must Have a Typewriter

I just love this image. It is of Italian musician and singer-songwriter Gino Paoli in his home in Milan in 1971. Paoli (born in Monfalcone on September 23, 1934) has written a number of songs widely regarded as classics in Italian popular music, including Il cielo in una stanza, Che cosa c'è, Senza fine and Sapore di sale.

When you are here with me
this room has no more walls
but typewriters
infinite typewriters
that vibrate for you and for me
up in the immensity of the sky.
Is that a Morepork, by the way?
