Ever since the sixteenth century, Italy has been a major tourist destination with its wonderful countryside and beautiful
cities like Rome, Venice and Florence. There is a great love of music throughout the nation and, despite the language
barrier, Italy has made a significant and important contribution to both British and American popular music. Many of the
major American stars - Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Connie Francis, Bobby Darin, Mario Lanza - came from immigrant
families and several pop hits of the 1950s started life as Italian hits. This wonderful collection features 40 Italian hits,
and even if you do not recognise the Italian titles, you will surely know many of the tunes.
