    Probably the first Italian song I ever remember hearing on the radio. Then this one came along in the film “Rome Adventure” with Troy Donahue and Suzanne Pleshette.

      I remember this song once it started playing. I also remember the movie. It was also the first song in Italian I ever heard. I even knew it well enough to sing along.

    “Al Di La” remained my favorite Italian song until many years later when I heard this one in the film “Mi Vida Sin Mi” (“My Life Without Me”). It’s a film that is very, very depressing, but also very, very good. But this song is exquisite. Written and recorded in 1961 (I think) and a hit (in Italy at least) for Gino Paoli. It’s become one of my favorite songs of all time.

      im6,
      This is the first time I have ever heard this song. It is lovely and the video reflects the loving.

        This video is somewhat deceiving. Or maybe it’s more out of context than it is deceiving. There’s a lot more to this young woman than you’d ever know by seeing this. I don’t know whether it would be better to recommend you see the movie without knowing what it’s about or not. Probably the less you know the better. That said, it’s a wonderful film, but sad, sad, sad. Tragic even. But perfectly written and beautifully acted. Based on many of the reviews I checked out on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes, people either really really love this movie or really really hate it, but it has an 87% favorable audience Tomato score and 5 stars on Netflix. I do know this would probably NOT be a good choice for one of your deck movies!

        im6,
        Definitely not for the summer deck. I am careful with my choices as one friend needs action films. He hated All the President’s Men, too much dialogue.

        Sad and tragic are not for me right now. The last month or so has been awful. There isn’t enough chocolate to raise my mood right now.
