From the Sanremo Song Festival of 2011 to the very first one, in 1951.  That year the winning song, Grazie dei Fiori, was sung by an elegant lady called Nilla Pizzi, who died last Saturday at the age of 91.  In 1952 Nilla Pizzi won the contest again, with Vola Colomba and also took second and third place, with the songs Papeveri e Papere and Una Donna Prega respectively.

Nilla Pizzi never stopped working and was preparing a new album of previously unreleased songs at the time of her death.

Adionilla Negrini Pizzi, 16.4.1919 - 12.3.2011.

Loved the music. I am, however, officially at War with Pigeons and reckon the only good one is in a pie.

Don't get me started about their effect on stonework.
