The Cannes Film Festival ended yesterday so we can start dreaming about it again.

The upheavals due to the health crisis made us forget it a little, but the real seasons in Cannes are clearly cut out: in spring, the festival; In the summer, we walk around the Croisette imagining that we are being targeted by the paparazzi, and that we are trying to return incognito to our hotel while discussing a huge project with a producer. This is all that Barbara Carlotti tells us in 2003, in the best song ever devoted to the imagination of Cannes.
