Sanremo Music Festival songs winners and history

Sanremo Festival 1967, the tragedy of a Singer:

  • At the Sanremo Festival in 1967, it is very important because it is a kind of dividing line between before and after.
  • Until that point, the festival seemed to Italian viewers a good party, from which recall some beautiful songs, songs that you can sing the following months, almento until summer.
  • Tenco was a good Genoese singer-songwriter, a person who was writing songs very intimate, that were leveraging deep feelings, Tenco was highly respected by his colleagues, but never had much success in his career. After that he was called to sing in Sanremo,Luigi Tenco was believed that this would be his chance of a lifetime, that would change everything, but when he saw that his song did not pass the turn, went back to the hotel and the same evening he killed himself, shooting himself a blow to his head with a gun. She found him so his musical partner, the French singer Dalida. The Sanremo Festival ceased to be 'young' and went into maturity.

  7. Hi there I really enjoy your blog. But it's quite hard to get in touch with you.. I got a question about artists similar to Simone Tomassini.. I know he's not a well establish italian pop star like most of the artists that make up your list. But I thoroughly enjoy his voice and I was wondering whether you'd be kind enough to tell me the name of similar italian artists

    Many thanks in advance
    hope I'll get a chance to chat with you

    Take care

  10. I love Sanremo too, but I want to see the "farfalla of belen"

  11. FESTIVAL SANREMO 2017dicembre 26, 2016

    Sempre peggio e non è per dire, ma è sempre peggio, sono numeri.
    Il festival di sanremo ha sempre meno spettatori, sempre meno canzoni belle, vende sempre meno dischi, ormai è l'archetipo di se stesso
