Simoncino has been a web phenomenon, one of those shiny meteors quickly burnt away from the media.
YouTube has brought his music to thousands of people, and he gained notoriety as a member of the “O.D.E.I” clan.
But in 2012 his friend Mirko, aka “Er Gitano”, commits suicide.
The clan splits apart and the dream fades away. An overdose, an arrest for dealing, and Simoncino’s life changed drastically.
Having put aside drugs and past friendships, everything to him seems suspended between hopes, projects and uncertainties, on hold for the outcome of three trials, on hold for his future. Standing beside him today, only his true loved ones: his family and Blade, his dog.
