Italy's comeback at the Eurovision Song Contest last year in Düsseldorf was very much celebrated as they came close to winning when Raphael Gualazzi and Madness Of Love placed 2nd, only behind Azerbaijan.
This year Italy bring us Nina Zilli, a unique singer who comes from Piacenza in the North of Italy, and who defines herself as a music lover, with a special affection for the 60s and 70s.
Nina Zilli participated in the 2012 Sanremo Festival with the song Per Sempre which served for her to be chosen as the Italian performer for the Eurovision Song Contest.
Now the management of Nina and Italian Television RAI confirm that in Baku she will perform Per Sempre (Forever) in a Eurovision edit and partially translated into English. Right now they are working in this new version which we'll be able to offer to you very soon.
The song, included in her new album L'Amore È Femina (Love Is Female), is written by Roberto Casalino and Nina Zilli herself. Here you can check out the original Italian version:
