Γραμμένο για τις σφαγές αμάχων Παλαιστίνιων στους καταυλισμούς Σάμπρα και Σατίλα από τον Αριέλ Σαρόν το 1982. Με τα λόγια του Fabrizio De André, τραγικά επίκαιρο:
"Sidon is the Lebanese city that gave us, beyond the letters of our alphabet, even the invention of glass. I imagined myself, after the sudden attack of General Sharon in 1982, as a middle-aged Arab man, dirty, desperate, certainly poor, holding in his arms his own son, chewed up by the steel tracks of an armored tank. . . . The 'little death' alluded to at the end of this song should not be confused with the death of a little boy. Rather it is understood metaphorically as the end of a civilization and culture of a small country: Lebanon, Phoenicia, which at its discretion was perhaps the greatest nurse of Mediterranean civilization."
