Fabio Rovazzi feat. Gianni Morandi - Volare

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

Italy

Here are some great lyrics for learning Italian. The video clip is actually a song within a short, inane, comedy. Just about every Italian knows the name Gianni Morandi. He's a very famous and well-loved singer-songwriter and entertainer, and even starred in a TV series called Voglia di Volare (the desire to fly), so the song may very well be a thinly veiled reference to that show. The original song Volare is one of the most famous Italian pop songs of all time.
