Mamma mia dammi cento lire is an old Italian song about a daughter asking her mother to give her 100 lire to emigrate to America. On her way she sank with the ship.
When I was a kid in Milano, Italy, I used a magnet to recover coins of 50 and 100 lira lost by costumers in deep shafts in front of shops.
The work deals with migrations, loss of identity and nostalgia.
