Italian term or phrase: la libertà era di casa
L’origine di questo modo di dire è molto curiosa. Adda venì baffone nacque sul finire della seconda guerra mondiale ad opera del popolo napoletano martoriato dalla guerra. Le persone costrette ad assistere inerti al conflitto bellico non sapevano più a chi rivolgersi per mettere fine alle atrocità. La speranza, però, era ancora viva. Si parlava all’epoca di una terra a est dove la libertà era di casa ed era il popolo a comandare.
