The Festival di Sanremo is the most well respected televised Italian pop music event. 2013 sees the sixty-third edition and to mark the event Swide has decided to run through the most important songs that have participated in the festival, and made Italian music history.
One of the most internationally known and loved Italian songs, Domenico Modugno’s Nel Blu Dipinto di Blu (Volare) was presented in 1958 and won the Sanremo Festival. Today it’s one of the most iconic pieces of Italian sung music and also a favourite of Dolce&Gabbana, which used it as the soundtrack to the Sicily inspired Spring Summer 2013 menswear collection.
