My favorite Italian Summer Songs of the 60's

From "Abronzatissima"  by Edoardo Vianello to "Sapore di sale" by Gino Paoli and "Si e' spento il sole"  by Adriano Celentano - these summer songs became the holiday soundtrack for entire generations. There are songs that do not belong to the individual artist who launched them, but to the public who adopted them and made them their own. Each of us, at least once in our life, has hummed or whistled carefree, light and easygoing tunes, but what is a catchphrase and, above all, how do you recognize it? Obiviously the repetitiveness of the text and the recognizable melody are some of the elements of a potential summer hit .

Why not go on a journey to reflect on past summers or look forward to upcoming summers by listening to these beautiful Italian  songs of the e 60s, songs such as:  "Marina" by Rocco Granata, and " Con te sulla spiaggia "by Nico Fidenco, or " Saint Tropez Twist "by Peppino di Capri, and the glorious " Polignano - Meravigliosa" by Domenico Modugno.



Summer Italian songs of the late 60's and early 70's included  "Stessa Spiaggia stesso mare" by Piero Focaccia,, Luglio" by Ricardo del Turco, and "Bandiera Gialla" by Gianni Pettenati is an absolute classic !


Other memorable Italian summer songs such as "Acqua Azzura e Chiara by Lucio Battisti" or "Azurro" by Adriano Celentano or "Nel Sole" by Al Bano are still today often played.
