Biography

Mia was an Italian singer. She is considered, by many experts, the most beautiful and expressive female voice of Italian pop music ever, characterized by her interpretative intensity and her soulful performance. She recorded her first records as Mimì Bertè, but soon decided to change her name to Mia Martini. She represented Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest twice: in 1977 with “Libera” , and in 1992 with “Rapsodia” .In late 1983, she decided to retire, and made a come back. In 1989 she returned to the Sanremo Festival with “Almeno tu nell’universo”, which won her the Critics Award and new success, the song remains an italian classic (with many cover versions)

On 14 May 1995, her body was found in the apartment in Via Liguria 38 in Cardano al Campo. According to the coroner’s report, her death was by cardiac arrest caused by an overdose of cocaine. She was 47.
