Luciano Tajoli participated several times (1961, 1962, 1963, and 1970) in the Sanremo Music Festival, winning in 1961 with the song Al di là.[1] It is estimated that he sold over 45 million records.

Personal life

Tajoli was born in Milan, came from a poor family and was a self-taught singer. He trained as an apprentice in tailor, barber and cobbler's shops. Due to polio in his childhood, Luciano always leaned during his performances, e.g., against a chair or piano. His limping was accommodated into the screenplays of his film appearances. He died, aged 76, in Merate.
