All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
A Night in Italy might really have been more accurately titled One Night 40 Years Ago in Italy. The most recent track is from 1973, and most are from the 1950s and 1960s. On the relatively sedate and charming "'A Tazza 'e Caffe" 1956, Nicola Arigliano comes across something like an Italian fadisto with a mandolin; Ferruccio Tagliavini's "Non Ti Scordar di Me" features a gorgeous accompaniment conducted and, one suspects, arranged by the genius Ennio Morricone; and there's simply no arguing with the charms of Domenico Modugno's "Volare."

Sophia Loren does acquit herself quite nicely on "Che M'e 'Mparato a Ffa," though. This disc might make for some good, ironic fun at a hipster party.

    Wonderful for all lovers of Italian Music!

    This purchase was a gift item for my elderly parents. It helped bring back many fond memories for them, as well as offering a very entertaining collection of music for younger generations. All are impressed with the wide array of authentic music from the artists that made these impressive songs so wonderfully popular. A true, timeless classic for listening in private or at a party atmosphere.
