Maybe she's refeering to the fact that the tune of the song reflects the traditional tuneful Italian song, which is supposed to be for the old.

I guess I must be included amongst the old ones, but I'd like Elisa to remember that those my generation grew up with the songs of the most talented singersongwriters ever, such as De André, Vecchioni, De Gregori, Dalla, Baglioni, Venditti, Lauzi, Battisti. So I think that most people my generation can tell whether a song is bad or not. I said that the text is an awful list of commonplaces full of rethoric (I guess that Battisti, Gaber or De André would be spinning in their graves if they could have listened to this song). The tune isn't that bad IMO: Pupo set the music by being inspired by the tradional Italian tuneful song. However I had expected Pupo, who wrote a couple of little masterpieces such as "Firenze Santa Maria Novella", and "Lidja a Mosca" to do much better. The tenor was blameless.

Apart from Malika Ayane and Tiziano Ferro, who are some light years far from the above mentioned singersongwriters, today's Italian music hasn't got much to offer, I'm afraid.

@ asma: I think older people just liked the song. I heard (or read) many who didn't like it saying: "My mother and grandmother said the song was very good and voted for it".

thanks ElisaR for clarifying.I just was confused about older people liked the song due to the old tune of it or due to Ef is the singer and voting for him is such a thickness to the monarchy and Savoy era.

Blasphemy!!! The EuroSong Contest has absolutely nothing to do with the Sanremo Festival. The Festival is a "national institution"
Besides the Festival of the Italian Song started long before the ESC did. Actually the ESC was patterned after the Sanremo Festival.
Although many singers like Modugno, Gigliola Cinquetti, Toto Cutugno won one edition of the Sanremo Festival and took part in the ESC, many others didn't. Mia Martini , who never won at Sanremo, took part in the ESC twice. Massimo Ranieri sang at the ESC in 1971, but he won at Sanremo only in 1988.

Acting in a film, that was still missing on the list..

d'amour" (The silence of love).
