The Best of Paolo Conte - Students often ask us which Italian singers are worth listening to. Of course, there are dozens and dozens and dozens of Italian singers worth listening to but we do have some favourites, and one of them is Paolo Conte. Il signor Conte has been around for decades and has composed too many fantastic songs to list here. Fortunately, there is a compilation album, The Best of Paolo Conte, readily available on iTunes Australia, which features twenty one of his gems, from Via con me to Gelato al limon and Gli impermeabili. Buon ascolto!!! [itunes Australia, $16.99].
At Italia 500 we've been offering Italian courses, in Sydney, since 1995 and one of the most beautiful aspects of learning Italian is that it opens the door to a culture of unrivalled richness and diversity. In this blog we'll be sharing some of our favourite books, movies, places in Italy to visit, music, links to podcasts, information about local and international Italian themed events, and the odd "personal" view, in the hope that it will encourage you to delve further into a culture which continues to inspire us and millions of people all over the world.
