LUCIANO TAJOLI

Biographie

Luciano Tajoli (17 April 1920, Milan – 3 August 1996, Merate) – Italian singer and actor.

Luciano Tajoli participated several times (1961, 1962, 1963, 1970) in the Sanremo Music Festival, winning in 1961 with the song Al di là. It is estimated that he sold over 45 million records.

Luciano Tajoli came from a poor family and was a self-taught singer. He trained as an apprentice in tailor, barber and cobbler’s shops. Due to the polio disease that struck him in childhood, Luciano always leaned during his performances, e.g., against a chair or piano. His limping was accommodated into the screenplays of his film appearances.
