"Per Lucia" (English translation: "For Lucia") was the Italian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1983, performed in Italian by Riccardo Fogli.

The song is a ballad, with Fogli singing about the lengths he wants to go to in order to impress Lucia, his lover. He claims at one point, for example, that he wants to make a feast for the entire country.

The song was performed fifth on the night (following Sweden's Carola Häggkvist with Främling and preceding Turkey's Çetin Alp & The Short Waves with Opera). At the close of voting, it had received 41 points, placing 11th in a field of 20.

It was succeeded as Italian representative at the 1984 Contest by Alice & Battiato with "I treni di Tozeur".

Fogli has recorded also an English-language version of the song, titled "For Lucia", which was released as a promo single.[1]

Swedish dansband Wizex covered the song on the 1983 album Julie as "Här är sången" with lyrics in Swedish by Monica Forsberg.[2]

There are two Finnish-language cover versions of the song. "Kirje sulle", written by Raul Reiman and recorded by Katri Helena and "Vielä kerran kaikki muuttuu", written by Turkka Mali and recorded by Jonna Tervomaa.[3]
