Nannini, Bello e impossibile

To celebrate the untimely (in the sense that it was long overdue) departure of Qaddafi, here is a 1986 song from Gianna Nannini, apparently inspired by none other than the late colonel.

It's been a long time since Qaddafi was bello (handsome) and as of yesterday, he will no longer be impossible, either.

The irrepressible Gianna, who is a lesbian, recently gave birth to her first child, Penelope, at the tender age of 54. She is part of the Nannini family of Siena, famous for their wonderful pastries. Gianna started working as a teen in dad's business, but lost two fingers while operating a machine. This certainly put her off from continuing in the family line, and she made an abrupt career change.
