“Bionda is a super important song to me. When I was little, my grandma would always sing us songs from her childhood. One of them was “tutti mi chiaman Mario”, a folk song from World War I. “Bionda” is the first song I wrote in Italian since I moved to the States, the first song that made me feel reconnected to my roots. It’s a story I needed to tell and one that brought me back to the streets of Trastevere. I wrote it with Sebastian Torres, the executive producer on my project.” – LITA
