It's Actually an Advert for a Pen

 . . .and a $32,000+ pen at that. But it's posted here because it's a lovely, clear recording of Pavarotti singing La Donna è Mobile. Beautiful stuff. Did you know that last Wednesday or Thursday (no one seems to be sure) was the 200th anniversary of Verdi's birth? I didn't either. Hence the late Luciano Pavarotti and the late Giuseppe Verdi advertising $32,000 pens for the very-much-with-us Montegrappa company.

Not complaining, mind you; beats the sox off using rap.  And they do seem to be gorgeous pens, even if they are just a tad out of this week's budget.
