* In September 2019, Sam Smith published an appeal to his fans on Instagram in which he explained how he perceives himself as non-binary (does not identify with either the male or female gender) and invited people to use the generic pronouns “They / Them” when addressing them. In compliance with his wish, and in accordance with the rules of the Italian language which, unlike English, does not include the use of the so-called “Singular they”, the masculine and feminine endings have been replaced by a shwa (the symbol “ə”)
