"Non andare più lontano" ("Don't go far away anymore") was the Italian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1967, performed in Italian by Claudio Villa.

The song is a ballad, sung from the perspective of a man telling his lover to be careful about the world around her. He attempts to tell her that people are not entirely good, despite what she believes. Reference is made to "your countryside", implying that the lover is from a rural area and unused to the ways of the city.

The song was performed sixteenth on the night, following Yugoslavia's Lado Leskovar with "Vse rože sveta" and preceding Ireland's Sean Dunphy with "If I Could Choose". At the close of voting, it had received 4 points, placing it 11th in a field of 17.

It was succeeded as Italian representative at the 1968 Contest by Sergio Endrigo with "Marianne".
