Biography

Adriano Celentano is one of the most successful singers and entertainers from Italy and is known far beyond his country's borders with hits such as "Azzurro". In addition to music, he was also active as an actor, presenter and producer for music, films and television programs and is known as "il Molleggiato", the feather dancer, because of his special dance style. He was born on January 6, 1938 in Milan in Gluck Street, which was later mentioned in his song "Il ragazzo della via Gluck" . The then 26-year-old made his acting debut in the film Ragazzi del Juke-Box (1959). A year later, he appeared in Federico Fellini's film La Dolce Vita, where he played a rock'n'roll singer. Heavily influenced by Elvis Presley, his first musical attempts were discovered by producer Ezio Leoni. He immediately offered him a contract and in 1961 the song "24,000 baci" was released, with which Adriano Celentano brought rock'n'roll to Italy. in 1962, he founded his own label, Clan Celentano, which released more than 40 albums over the course of his 50-year career, including 29 studio albums, three live albums and eight compilations. Two years later, he entered the Italian charts for the first time with Non mi dir (1964), which immediately reached number 3. In 1968, he released his version of the song "Azzurro", written by Paolo Conte, which became a cult classic and reached number 1 in the charts not only in Italy but also in Austria. In addition to his music, Celentano always kept an eye on the political and economic situation in his home country: The album Svalutation , released in 1976, took a critical look at the Italian economic crisis at the time. In addition to successful albums in the 70s and 80s, Mina Celentano , an album in collaboration with the Italian singer Mina, was released in 1998 and continued in 2016 with Le Migliori . Both albums made it to number 1 in the Italian charts, with Le Migliori even going seven times platinum. His songs and film appearances (most recently in 1992 as Furio in the film Jackpot) established him as the voice and conscience of Italy and helped him achieve enduring popularity.
