Righeira is an Italo disco duo from Turin, Italy. The group was founded in 1981 by Stefano Rota and Stefano Righi. They became famous in continental Europe for their single "Vamos A La Playa" (Let's Go To The Beach), composed together with Carmelo and Michelangelo La Bionda[1] and released in 1983. The track reached #53 in the UK Singles Chart.[2]

A year later in 1984, it was followed up by the single "No Tengo Dinero" (I Don't Have Money). Both singles were successful in the charts. "L'estate Sta Finendo" (The Summer Is Over), was released in 1985 and became a number one hit in Italy, but failed to peak the charts in other countries.
