"Maledetta Primavera" (pronounced [maleˈdetta primaˈvɛːra]; Italian for "Damned Springtime") is a song written by Paolo Cassella and Gaetano Savio and performed by Italian singer Loretta Goggi in 1981, at the 31st edition of Festival di San Remo. The song didn't win the Festival, making it only to the second place, however, it became a hit in Italy, and later covers became a hit in several other languages around the world.
