"Mamma Maria" is a song composed by Cristiano Minellono and Dario Farina and performed by the Europop group Ricchi e Poveri. The single was an international hit, which charted in Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Netherland and Belgium.

The song was later covered by several artists, including María Abradelo, James Last, Franz Lambert, Willy Sommers and Grupa 777. In 2006 the success of the song revamped in Italy as it was used for a series of Parmigiano-Reggiano commercials.[1][2]
