Artist: Mina
Author: De Filippi/Franco Migliacci
Label: Italdisc
Year: 1959

Italian for Moontan. It's the story of a girl who wants to turn white by the moonlight instead of tanned by the sun. Tipically Migliacci, who also wrote Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu, where a man paints his hands and face blue and flies away in the bright blue yonder.
Mina was the most popular Italian female singer of the whole twentieth century (while she keeps on going in the 21st). She was the first local shoutster, nicknamed 'La Urlatrice'.
