Emilio Pericoli

Emilio Pericoli

Emilio Pericoli (7 January 1928 – 9 April 2013[1]) was an Italian singer. He was born in Cesenatico, Romagna.

Pericoli's success was closely tied to the Sanremo Festival. He recorded a cover version of the song, "Al di là", by festival winner Betty Curtis. The song was an international success, hitting the charts in the U.S. (#3 AC, #6 Pop)[2] and #30 in UK.[3] It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.[4]

In 1962, Pericoli entered the festival himself. Together with composer Tony Renis he sang the ballad, "Quando, Quando, Quando", featured in The Easy Life, which initially failed to chart but which later became one of the best-known Italian hits.

A year later, Pericoli returned to San Remo with Renis again, with the song "Esther Ofarim.
