Nico Fidenco

Nico Fidenco (artistic name Domenico Colarossi; born January 24, 1933, in Rome) is an Italian singer who gained considerable popularity from 1960 onwards, after the release of the song What a sky (Italian: Su nel cielo, taken from the film of Francesco Maselli Silver Spoon Set).

Self-taught in music, Fidenco did a few cover versions of film title songs for the Italian market. With the song "Legata a un granello di sabbia", he was the first Italian singer to sell one million copies of a single.[1] This interest in cinema led him to be a prolific soundtrack composer, including scores for westerns and many Joe D'Amato films.[2]
