Umberto Tozzi was already a worldwide star when entering Sanremo for the first time as a part of the supertrio with Gianni Morandi and Enrico Ruggeri in 1987 with Si puó dare di piú. They won, of course. Apparently Enrico Ruggeri and Umberto Tozzi were supposed to go to Eurovision after that (Morandi already having done that before) but when Ruggeri said no, Tozzi took Raf along and they scored a respectable third place in Bruxelles with evergreen Gente di mare and refreshed his international career that had made him a million seller with songs like Ti amo, Gloria and Tu. He returned to Sanremo in 1991 with Gli altri siamo noi (4th) and again in 2000 with Un'altra vita (16th). His last participation to date is 2005, when Le parole failed to reach the final.....
Tozzi has released 18 sudio albums since his debut in 1976, several compilations and live albums. His latest albums are Yesterday, today (2012), Non solo live (2009) and compilation Yesterday - the best of 1976-2012 (2012). His latest video is Se tu non fossi qui. Umberto turns 62 today, auguri!
