The numbers are out in Italy. Who sold the most albums, who was downloaded the most? In physical sales Italian artists really rule as the Top-10 is totally Italian with the exception of Lady Gaga, or Stefania Germanotta, an Italian really. In download it's completely different: only three Italian songs made the top-10 so are Italian buying Italian music and downloading only the foreign?
Anyways, here are the most downloaded songs in Italy in 2010:
2. Jovanotti - Baciami ancora
3. Kesha - Tic toc
4. Lady Gaga - Alejandro
5. Edward Maya - Stereo love
6. Noemi - Per tutta la vita
7. Stromae - Alors on danse
8. Modá - Sono giá solo
9. Lady Gaga - Bad romance
10. Shakira - Loca
Valerio Scanu, the winner of Sanremo made it 11th with his winning song Per tutte le volte che and Malika Ayanae also from Sanremo with Ricomincio qui at #14. Modá, from thsi year's Sanremo was 21st with La notte and Marco Mengoni's Sanremo third placed Credimi ancora 22nd.
As for the most sold albums:
1. Ligabue - Arrivederci, mostro!
2. Emma - Oltre
3. Biagio Antonacci - Inaspettata
4. Pierdavide Carone - Una canzone pop
5. Alessandra Amoroso - Il mondo in un secondo
6. Zucchero - Chocabeck
7. Negramaro - Casa 69
8. Lady Gaga - The Fame monster
9. Marco Mengoni - Re matto
10. Vasco Rossi - Tracks 2
So the top-10 is filled with veterans and reality TV star (Amici, X Factor). Alessandra Amoroso completes a triplet when her Senza nuvole is at #15 and Stupida at #87. Same goes for Marco Mengoni: Re matto live at #32 and Dove si vola at #61. Emma, favourite in Sanremo 2011 has also her other album A me piace cosi at #35.
