"Insieme: 1992" (English translation: "Together: 1992") was the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1990, in Zagreb, Yugoslavia, performed in Italian by Toto Cutugno for Italy, the country's second victory in the Contest.

Eurovision[edit]

Cutugno sang about bringing the disparate nations of Europe together. The "1992" of the title refers to the year in which the European Union was scheduled to begin operation, thus bringing the hope of the lyric to fruition. Cutugno sang the song with a backing group of five singers from Slovenia, the group Pepel In Kri, who represented Yugoslavia in 1975.

The song was performed nineteenth on the night (following Sweden's Edin-Ådahl with Som en vind and preceding Austria's Simone with Keine Mauern mehr). At the close of voting, it had received 149 points, placing 1st in a field of 22.
