Romantica, Dallara-Rascel

Composed by Renato Rascel (music) and Dino Verde (lyrics), the song won the 1960 Sanremo Festival in the interpretations of two different singers Rascel (melodic and "whispered"), and Tony Dallara (powerful and "shouted").
Many other language versions of the song were made: by Dalida in French, a British version by Jane Morgan, an Estonian version of the Quartet Male of Radio Estonia and even one in Japanese.

Renato Rascel (a.k.a. Renato Ranucci, Torino 27 april 1912 – Roma, 2 January 1991), was a famous actor, comesian and songwriter. Tony Dallara (a.k.a. Antonio Lardera, Campobasso 30 January 1936), became famous in 1957 with the song "Come prima" that had been rejected from the Sanremo Festival, but sold 300,000 records and introduced the new american-style shouter-singer.

Bambina bella
sono l'ultimo poeta
che si ispira ad una stella
bambina mia
sono l'ultimo inguaribile
malato di poesia
e voglio bene a te
perché sei come me
Romantica
My beautiful girl
I am the last poet
that is inspired by a star
My darling girl
I am the last incurable
sick of poetry
and I love you
because you're like me
Romantic
 
Tu sei romantica, tu sei romantica
Amarti è un po' rivivere
Nella semplicità, nell'irrealtà di un'altra età
Tu sei romantica, amica delle nuvole
Che cercano lassù un po' di sol come fai tu
You are romantic, you are romantic
Loving you is a bit living again
In the simplicity, in the unreality of another age
You are romantic, a friend to clouds
that are looking up there for a little sun like you
 
Tu sei la musica che ispira l'anima
Sei tu il mio angolo di paradiso, per me
You are the music that inspires the soul
You are my piece of heaven, for me
 
Ed io che accanto a te, son ritornato a vivere
A te racconterò, affiderò i sogni miei
Perché romantica, perché romantica,
perché romantica tu sei
And next to you, I am living again
I will tell you, I will entrust you my dreams
because romantic, because romantic,
because romantic - you are
