Virginian was a steamer. Over the years, among the two wars he spoked between Europe and America, with his load of billionaires, emigrants and any people. They say that an extraordinary pianist was performed on the Virginian every night, from the amazing technique, able to play music ever heard before, wonderful. They say that the story of him was crazy, that he was born on that ship and who had never gone from there. They say no one knew why. This story, born as a theatrical monologue, came out for the first time in 1994. In 1998 Giuseppe Tornatore has drawn the film "The legend of the pianist on the ocean".
