Que C'est Triste Venise
Que C'est Triste Venise (literal English translation: How Sad Venice Is) is a song written by Armenian-French artist Charles Aznavour and Françoise Dorin and sung by Aznavour about Venice. It was first recorded in French by Aznavour in 1964, and later in Spanish (Venecia Sin Ti), German (Venedig im Grau), English (How Sad Venice Can Be or Venice Blue cover of Bobby Darin), and most notably in 1971 in Italian (Com'è Triste Venezia).
Italian poet Giulia Niccolai dedicated her 'Como è trieste Venezia' love poem to Charles Aznavour (for his well-known song) and to Adriano Spatola.
In 1964 it received a Blason d'Or award as one of the top hits of the year.
