It had to happen, and it happened: a time-shifted meeting of two icons of the “Milanese spirit” and of the Italian “humorous” song. Yes: Elio has always been far too educated and witty to be quickly labelled as “zany, madcap humour”. And yes: Jannacci was so much more than a clownish outsider on the Italian pop music scene. That’s all the more reason to have great expectations for this tribute. The characters “in tennis shoes” created by Enzo’s tragicomic vein exposed the jarring contradictions, hardships and hypocrisy of society, combining nonsense and social critique. Which, on closer inspection, is what Elio has also been doing in his thirty years of clever wordplay and sound puns.
