Italy's Nina Zilli - can she improve on last years 2nd place at Eurovision
After some 13 years away from Eurovision Song Contest- one of the original countries Italy returned last in Dusseldorf 2012
with Raphael Gualazzi's 'Madness of Love' that finished in 2nd placing.. one amazing comeback.
In the past Italy have been represented by the likes of Gigolia Cinquetti, Domenico Modugno,Toto Cutugno, Ricchi & Poveri and Umberto Tozzi, Al Bano & Romina Power & Franco Battiato- to name a few. Although the list of artists reads like the royality of Italian music- they have won only twice in Eurovision history - and last year's runner up position is only the 2nd time they have been a runner-up- previously to 2011. We have to go back to 1974 when Gigolia Cinquetti came second to Abba's 'Waterloo'.
For Eurovision Song Contest 2012 Italy have choosen San Remo artist Nina Zilli. She looks like almost like an italian Amy Whitehouse with a song called 'L'Amore e Femmina (Out of Love)' we think this could even be the one-
with a modern song + a little of Eurovis Sparkle to be a winner
