Just recently borrowed "Rome Adventure" from the library. Absolutely horrible plot, acting, dialogue and directing. In spite of that I enjoyed it immensely, then went to Rome.
Another movie song that brings an Italian fix..... the music from "lady and a Tramp" while the two "lovers" eat spaghetti outside the italian restaurant.

I just realized that way up above I misspelled the name of my beloved Carlo Bergonzi. Shame on me and my lousy typing.

I had Andrea Bocelli on the CD player tonight -- he took me right back (we listened to "Romanza" as we drove down the Amalfi Coast 2 years ago).

San Remo CDs (from the Italian song festival). I just got San Remo 2004 with various artists from Amazon. It was $25, but very different from the usual stuff. I also vote for Opera. If you don't already own any, try The #1 Opera Album as a good sampler.

Andrea Bocelli-Romanza...that's his best I think...I just LOVE that CD. I did get his Ave Marias and play it a lot during the Christmas season..very beautiful.

Dog_Mother, I just read this thread again for the first time since I posted and saw your request to me for CD Titles.

I am so sorry that I had not returned to this thread until today and consequently did not see your post until right now.

I can't today but of course I will be happy to give you titles. In fact my daughter & SIL have even newer ones that I will get names of for you and anyone else that is interested.

Again my apologies, I sure wasn't ignoring you. Take care.

Dominic Chianese, of Soprano's fame, has a recent CD called "Ungrateful Heart". The CD includes Italian standard love songs as well as songs about the loss of love, kind of like Italian blues.

Andrea Bocelli. His singing is from his heart: So, pure and so honest. Everytime I listen to one of his songs it is like the very first time I heard it, and I never tire of his music.

Andrea Bocelli and Luciano Pavrotti - I listen to them daily in my car, driving back and forth to work.

Ligabue "Giro d'Italia" (3 c.d. set). In particular, Piccola Stella Senza Cielo which was a hit and all over the music channels when we were there last (November of 2003). A beautiful song and lovely accompanying scenes of Venice on the video.

"Souvenir de Florence" by Tchaikhovsky. It takes a Russian to really "get" Italy.
