Edoardo Vianello (born 24 June 1938) is an Italian singer, composer and actor. He's considered one of the most popular Italian singers of the Sixties.[1] SIAE estimated a sale of over 50 million records worldwide.[2]

Born in Rome, Vianello started his career in 1956.[3] He obtained his first successes in 1961, with Il capello and Pinne fucile ed occhiali,[3] that ranked 2 in the Italian Hit Parade.[4] Later he obtained several more great successes (including Guarda come dondolo, Abbronzatissima and O mio signore which charted 1 and I Watussi which charted 3)[4] until the second half of 60's.[3] After a less successful period, he re-launched his career in the 70's founding the duo Vianella with his wife Wilma Goich.[3] The main hit of the period was Semo gente de borgata, which ranked 7 in Hit Parade.[4] In late 70's he reprised his solo career.
