Gigliola Cinquetti was born on this day in Verona, Veneto, Italy in 1947. Gigliola received attention at the young age of 16. She triumphed at the annual San Remo Song Contest in early 1964. A few weeks later, she swept the awards at Eurovision.
My introduction to Gigliola was listening to an LP that she recorded with Los Panchos, the great trio of Spanish music.
Have a nice day Gigliola!
