"Simonetta" is the new single from "Assalti Frontali" dedicated to Simonetta Salacone, the historic director of the "Iqbal Masih" elementary school in the Casilino district of Rome, who died in January 2017. The video was shot in the buildings of Casilino 23 , in the Iqbal Masih school and in the theater of the "Mangiafuoco" company. The work aims to evoke the idea of ​​how a territory can become a community and it recalls the person, the thought and the action of a woman who has raised generations of new citizens and brings rap back to its natural vocation for the story of life , the transmission of values ​​to young people who today, too often, are passionate about this genre without knowing the real communicative possibilities.
