Umberto Antonio Tozzi is an Italian pop and rock singer and composer. His biggest international hits are: “Claridad”, “Gloria” and “Ti Amo”. Tozzi was born on 4 March 1952 in Turin, Italy. In 1968, at the age of 16, Umberto Tozzi joined ‘Off Sound’, one of the many groups that performed in small venues around Turin. In Milan, he met Adriano Pappalardo, with whom he formed a 13-piece band and began a large-scale Italian tour. In 1974 Tozzi had his first success as a songwriter, with the song “Un corpo, un’anima”, co-written with Damiano Dattoli and performed by Wess and Dori Ghezzi. It appeared on Canzonissima, an Italian music programme running from 1956 to 1974. In 1976, he released his first album, Donna Amante mia, which contained the single “Io camminerò”, which was sung with great success by Fausto Leali. In 1977, “Ti amo”, one of Tozzi’s most famous songs, was released. It stayed at number one on the Italian song charts for seven months, and went on to become an international success throughout continental Europe. It also achieved decent success in the Americas and Australia, primarily in nightclubs. The single was awarded a gold record award in Australia, despite the fact that it only made number 25 on the charts there in late 1979. In 1978 he released Tu, another hit in Italy, and held an Australian tour, which was organized by the Italo-Australian promoter Duane Zigliotto and concluded at the Sydney’s Opera House with two full house concerts.Read Full Biography Wikipedia
