Sanremo 1968 - 18th Edition -Finalist: duet with Louis Armstrong; "Mi va di Cantare" by Bonassisi-Bertero-Valleroni

In 1968, jazz great Louis Armstrong (see photo above) and Lara Saint Paul surprised and delighted the Sanremo audience and television producers by turning the show into a real live jam session while performing their award winning duet "Mi va di Cantare" accompanied by Lionel Hampton. It was a real change for the Festival Sanremo in many ways, and is still looked upon today as one of the highlights in the Festival's history.

Sanremo 1972 - 22nd Edition - Finalist: solo - "Se non fosse tra queste mie braccia lo inventerei" by Suligoj-Beretta
