The title of this piece comes from an old expression Italian people used to say as an expression of delight when some random bit of good fortune would come their way. Though my ancestors all came from Italy, and I grew up around Italian immigrants, I never actually heard this saying used. However, I read it in a book recently and liked the sound of it. The painting originally had a different title which (even tho I gave it the title) it never quite seemed to fit. Another example of how inspiration can come from anywhere.
