Biography

Emilio Pericoli was an Italian singer. Pericoli’s success was closely tied to the San Remo Festival. He recorded a cover version of the song, “Al di là”, by festival winner Betty Curtis. The song was an international succes. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. In 1962, Pericoli entered the festival himself. Together with composer Tony Renis he sang the ballad “Quando, quando, quando”, featured in the movie The Easy Life, which initially failed to chart but later became one of the best-known Italian hits. A year later, Pericoli returned to San Remo with Renis again, with the song “Uno per tutte”. He placed among the winners, and represented Italy  in the 1963 Eurovision Song Contest. 

Emilio Pericoli  died April 9, 2013,  aged 85.
