The album was recorded entirely at Atlanta's 'temple of rock music,' Southern Tracks. Songs such as “Nebulosa”, “Ode a Renoir”, “Il mare in fondo al mare”, “Vittima della stagione”, “Sky”, and “Ofelia” are treasures of the most emotional and intimate rock.

February 2006 Lara is currently working on her third new release.
