"Cielo e terra" (Heaven and earth) was the Swiss entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 1960, composed by Mario Robbiani and performed in Italian by Anita Traversi.

On the night of the contest the song was performed 9th, following Monaco's François Deguelt with "Ce soir-là" and preceding the Netherlands' Rudi Carrell with "Wat een geluk". At the close of the voting the song had received 5 points, placing 8th in a field of 13.

It was succeeded as Swiss representative at the 1961 contest by Franca Di Rienzo with "Nous aurons demain". Anita would later come back to the contest in 1964, unfortunately, ending up with nul points.
