In 1981 the singer-songwriter Franco Battiato published his masterpiece La Voce del Padrone, with pop songs surprisingly easy to appreciate, intellectual lyrics and state-of-the-art electronic and middle-west fashioned arrangements. The LP features Bandiera Bianca, which is the same title of the 2003 Dido hit White Flag.
