"Vivo (Ti scrivo)" (English translation: "Alive (I Write To You)") was the Italian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1988, performed in Italian by Luca Barbarossa.

The song is a ballad, in which Barbarossa apologises to the recipient of a letter he is writing for using this method of communication. This recipient appears to be a former lover, as he sings that "Without a good reason/I just scream out your name/It makes me feel alive" and makes mention of deep feelings which needed to be communicated.

The song was performed eighteenth on the night (following Luxembourg's Lara Fabian with "Croire" and preceding France's Gérard Lenorman with "Chanteur de charme"). At the close of voting, it had received 52 points, placing 12th in a field of 21.

It was succeeded as Italian representative at the 1989 Contest by Anna Oxa & Fausto Leali with "Avrei voluto".
