Jimmy Fontana in Modica, 2011

This 1971 song was another big hit for Jimmy Fontana, who died on Wednesday. Jimmy wrote the music with Italo "Lilli" Greco and the words with Franco Migliacci. The song was sung at the 1971 Sanremo Festival by both the Ricchi e Poveri and José Feliciano and was awarded second place. Feliciano went on to record the song in Italian, Spanish and English. This song about having to leave the place where you were born still resonates with many Italians today and continues to be loved.
