Retro Sunday: Italy 1984

Every Sunday we give you some of our favorite old entries to cheer you up a little extra and make you miss the glorious old days. Today we bring you a classic from the country we miss the most in Eurovision.

Dear Italy, please come back, return to the ESC stage! No other country can manage to win the Eurovision Song Contest with a love song for EU, or sing about trains in Tunisia with passion like this. And when the three matrons dressed in the same colors as the Italian flag, towards the end belts out a passage from Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” in German (!), we almost start crying, it’s so poetic, so beautiful and so Italian!
