Italian songs: "Azzurro" by Adriano Celentano sung by Italian football team

In the video above you can see Italian singer Adriano Celentano singing “Azzurro”: an Italian song that laments the arrival of summer and a girl gone away to the sea.
Celentano has a story typical of many Italians who migrated within in Italy.

His parents were from Puglia and had moved north to work.

You can see how Celentano would have been an Italian heart throb in his day.
Not only was he a singer, but he was also a famous dancer, influenced by Elvis Presley.

Celentano appeared in many films and still works as a musician today.
After the jump you will find a video of the Italian national football team, the Azzurri, in a professional karaoke act (hats off to Totti!) as they sing “Azzurro”.
Also a translation in English of the Italian song and see our previous post for Celentano’s “baci” song.
