Charismatic and creative singer and songwriter, Umberto Tozzi thanks to his evergreens has become an icon of the Italian music and he has crossed and excited entire generation, filling the world's most important music venues with his concerts and his loyal, cross-genre audience.

 

Several records in terms of chart hits that have characterized the artist life of Tozzi, from “Ti Amo”, an unforgettable song of 1977, that stayed  at the top of the charts for more than seven months, breaking all sales records and winning that year's edition of Festivalbar, has crossed every boundary with its many covers, until reaching to be the centre of one of the most important scenes of the popular series “House of paper 4”.

 

Impossible not to mention the worldwide hit “Gloria”- chosen for Martin Scorsese’s movie soundtrack “The Wolf of Wall Street”,as well as for “ Flashdance” directed by Adrian Lyne- which carried Umberto Tozzi's name overseas thanks to Laura Branigan's 1982 cover of the song and reached number 1 on the United States Chart staying on the  Billboard hot 100 for 36 weeks.
