“Tutto è troppo dentro te” (“Everything is too much inside you”) is the second extract from the new album by Max Montanari, entitled “S.A.L.I.G.I.A.”.
In recent months Montanari has resurrected an album made 15 years ago that he made for a major record company. At that time he was producer and voice of the historic rock band “Perikolo Generiko” (project closed in 2007).
The songs on this album retrace the seven deadly sins in a modern way. In fact, the title is an acronym composed of the initials of the vices: Superbia, Accidia, Lussuria, Ira, Gola, Invidia, Avarizia.
The song “Tutto è troppo dentro te” shows us the the sin of sloth. But before the official music video, let’s introduce this Italian rock musician.

Tutto è troppo dentro te by Max Montanari
The song “Tutto è troppo dentro te” stages the sin of sloth. A defect that many still struggle to understand today and that has changed over the centuries, unlike the others. Sloth is the state of mind that affects those who have stopped living, feel bored with the world, do not do good works and are not interested in others.
In the past it was associated with depression. But today no one would think that a depressed person is committing a sin. The concept has changed in the modern era and the music video of the song “Tutto è troppo dentro te” by Max Montanari explains it well.
The representation of sloth in Tutto è troppo dentro te by Max Montanari
The video shows images of employees and managers, busy working and moving around in a super modern city. Streams of people pass us at an uncontrolled speed, so much so that the movement becomes an indistinct flow.
The image of people sitting in the bathroom often appears (there is also a sebach flying into space). Perhaps because today we grind our existence as if it were food. Life slips on us like our lunch, which after a few hours is already out of our body, just a waste to be forgotten.
Today’s slothful individual lives frantically, between work commitments until late and entertainment on night clubs with alcohol. He does not dwell on small things, on affections, on inner growth. He can’t stop and think. And this situation in the long run can push him to end it.
In the last scenes of the music video we also encounter a reference to the recent world crisis due to the ongoing health disaster. There is a hospital worker, fully harnessed with personal protective equipment, in front of a noose. It is also an invitation to reflect on the situation of those who are fighting in the battle against the virus.
