QUELLI DELLA DOMENICA - RAI - 1968

Included in the cast was Paolo Villagio, in his television debut, with Kranz and Fracchia, Cochi and Renato, Gianni Argus, Ric and Gian and Lara Saint Paul. Marchesi, Terzoli and Vaime collaborated with Maurizio Costanzo on the show for RAI.
CANZONISSIMA ' 70 - RAI - 1970
This was the birth of the Italian TV variety show. Songs, comedy sketches, dancing, dueling presenters...every week Canzonissima brought the worlds of film and music together. The 1970 edition featured Lara Saint Paul.

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.
