Mina 25 is an album by Italian singer Mina published in 1983,[1][2] as a double, album issued as "CD. 1" and "CD. 2 ". The album would peak at number 8 on the Italian music charts in 1983.[3]

The Album[edit]

This is the first of four vocal collaborations with the RAI Radiotelevisione Italiana for the 30 years of our history TV broadcast. The TV broadcast retraced the history of Italy with the help of songs of the time (all contained on disc 1 of Mina 25). The same pattern would be followed on Mina’s next three albums: Catene, Finalmente ho conosciuto il conte Dracula... and Si, buana.

The song Verde luna had already been included on the album Salomè and was re-recorded for this album.
