Al Bano & Romina 1982

820121 Al Bano & Romina

Italian duo Al Bano (hip with suit, senior bank clerk glasses and minor mafioso haircut) and Romina Power (daughter of US actor Tyrone Power) feature in an article in Bravo of 21 January 1982, talking about how their latest hit tells the story of how they found their love.

Their story has a sad ending: in 1994 their 24-year-old daughter Ylenia, whom you can see in the picture in the report, vanished. She was declared dead in 2013. The strain from that broke up their marriage. They divorced in 1999.

Here’s the song the article reports on.
