Domenico Modugno (9 January 1928 – 6 August 1994) was an Italian singer, songwriter, actor, guitarist, and later in life, a member of the Italian Parliament. He is known for his 1958 international hit song “Nel blu dipinto di blu”, for which he received Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. He is considered the first Italian cantautore. In 1962, Modugno won the Sanremo Music Festival a third time with “Addio…, addio….” Four years later, he again represented Italy at Eurovision with “Dio, come ti amo.” Sergio Franchi recorded it in Italian (titled “Oh How Much I Love You (Dio, come ti amo!)) on his 1967 RCA Victor album, From Sergio-with Love. Jack Jones recorded it in English for his 1967 album, Our Song, under the title “Oh How Much I Love You.” From 1986, he worked for the rights of disabled people, and in June 1987, he was elected congressman for Turin in Italian Parliament, in the ranks of the Radical Party, a liberal-social political group. In the past he had supported the campaigns of the Italian Socialist Party and one for divorce, in addition to criticizing the human rights’ violation by the regime of Augusto Pinochet, that cost him a denial of entry in Chile, where he had been scheduled to hold a concert. In this last stage of his life, instead, he was very active in social issues, fighting against inhuman conditions of patients in the Agrigento psychiatric hospital.
