If you could choose an animal to reincarnate in, which one would it be?
An eel.

You are just back from a series of concerts in Tibet. How was the accomodation?
To be frank, I lived 2 full weeks in a Tibetan monastery before I saw daylight and realized it was not the Hilton hotel. Funny thing: I learnt to move small objects with my mind.

Did you ever participated in a séance?
Hell yeah! But just once. It was an extremely excruciating experience. At a certain point, the spirit of Charles I of England appeared and confirmed that almost surely I'm the reincarnation of a Nelson Mandela's homonym.

Paolo, do you have something to say to your youngest fans?
Why not! Don't let the color of your skin be the marker for being out of place. Sun block and sunscreen have been invented for a reason.

Do you like to cook?
To be honest, I think that cooking food is a big waste of energy. After all, there are canteens and relatives more than willing to deliver my daily RDA of fats and carbs. In the few occasions I have to cook for my disciples, I like to design salads. My masterpiece is a mix of pulled pork and quinoa, which I think can be fine for both vegetarians and normal people.

Interesting! Could you share the recipe with us?
By all means! You take the pulled pork and the quinoa and you make a bunch of sandwiches using some bread rolls.

It does not matter, my recipe comes from one for sandwiches. After you made the sandwiches, you discard the bread and mix pulled pork and quinoa with some cocktail sauce and voilà, you are done!

Can we play the "word association" game? I say a concept and you say another word. Let me start with :
Q: elk.

Paolo : food

Q: sinner
Paolo : food

Q: frog
Paolo : food

I have a confession to make. My supervisor had patiently lined up my short rendezvous with Paolo Conte several weeks beforehand. Unluckily, my pet koala got lead poisoning, so I had to skip the interview. So, the interview above is mainly based on what Paolo Conte would have probably said if I have met him, as suggested by a statistics involving a couple of random people.
