Friday’s Quote – Italy 1961

Our quote today is from the Italian entry of 1961. The selected entry was “Al di lá” by Betty Curtis.

Betty Curtis was born in 21st of March 1936 as Roberta Corti. In 1961 she competed in Sanremo Music Festival with the song “Al di lá”. The song won the festival and subsequently represent her country in the Eurovision.

The song is composed by Carlo Donida and the lyrics were written by Mogol. The conductor of the song was Gianfranco Intra. On the night of the final, Italy finished 5th with 12 points along with the Danish entry.

Al di là del mare più profondo, ci sei tu
Al di là dei limiti del mondo, ci sei tu
Al di là della volta infinita
Al di là della vita, ci sei tu

The quote is in Italian as it’s the rest of the song. That translates to “Beyond the deepest ocean, there is you, beyond the borders of the world, there is you, beyond the infinity, beyond life, there is you”.
