Biography

Italian singer Umberto Tozzi was born in Turin on March 4, 1952. In 1968, he made his singing debut, inspired mainly by Anglo-Saxon rock and local artists such as Adriano Celentano. In 1977, the young crooner released the song that changed his career, "Ti amo". This romantic theme is featured on his second album È nell'aria ... ti amo, released the same year. " Ti amo" reached number one in Italy for seven months running, and went on to become a huge hit throughout Europe and the United States. Armed with this timeless title, Umberto Tozzi enjoyed a successful period until the early 1980s. He followed this up with the lilting "Tu" in 1978 and the Italo-disco-influenced "Gloria" in 1979. Halfway between pop and rock, while retaining his eminently Italian character, Umberto Tozzi became a key player on the international scene with albums such as Notte Rosa (1981), Gli Altri Siamo Noi (1991) and Bagaglio a Mano (1999). Also singing in Spanish, English and sometimes French, Umberto Tozzi has sold over seventy million albums, including originals, live performances and compilations. In the 2000s, Umberto Tozzi re-recorded his signature songs alongside other artists, with Tozzi / Masini in 2006 and Raf Tozzi in 2018. Born in the age of vinyl, "Ti amo" stands out once again in the age of streaming, appearing on the soundtrack of the popular series La Casa de Papel in 2020.
