ROMINA POWER and AL BANO – “FELICITA” FOR TWO

Romina Power and Al Bano sang many love songs. Love is a song for two. If she is happy, then the melody will be lively and cheerful. But it’s worth jealousy or insecurity to sneak into the souls of singers, how falsity is heard in music, and the text does not add up to poetry, and the once beautiful sounds of the sensational hit are becoming quieter …

American Beauty
She is a young beauty from Hollywood with the imperious surname Power (which means “power”, “power”). Her parents are not from ordinary inhabitants: father Tyrone is an Italian emigrant, an actor popular in 1930-40, and her mother is also an actress – Linda Christian, who dreamed of making a modeling career. It is easy to predict what fate was preparing for the rich girl Romina. At the age of 14, she shone on the screens, starring in several very candid films, and also recorded a solo album. Then the girl realized that she wanted to do music. Her mother, who dreamed of seeing her daughter as a brilliant actress, completely disagreed with this choice. She pinned hopes on Romina related to the realization of her own cherished, but not fulfilled, desire for a stellar career.

In the future, the daughter will continue to upset Linda, because obstinacy is a trait adopted from her father. Duet Romina Power and Al Bano

So, the rebel went to Italy in 1967. Then she was sixteen. The local press, fascinated by the beauty of a foreigner, only wrote about Romin. Her father’s historic homeland literally fell at the girl’s feet. The invitation to star in the film directed by Al Grimaldi Nel sole was not slow. There, at the site, she first saw Him …

Fate did not reward this man with a rich or influential family. No. He was lucky only with talent. Father during World War II was in Albania and gave his son the name Albano (which means “Albanian”), in memory of past events. The only “legacy” of Carrizi in several years will bear fruit and give the boy fame.

Persistence in Italian
In the meantime, the guy suffered all the difficulties and hardships in his path only because of his great love of music. When he turned 12, he composed his first song, and at 16 he realized that you need to move on and if you are reaching for a dream, it’s best to substitute a stepladder or, in the case of Romina Power and Al Banona, an extreme case, leave your home for Milan. But in the big city of happiness, everything was not visible, only work: a waiter, a cook, a worker on a conveyor belt.

In 1965, at a competition organized by Adriano Celentano, a singer appeared with a beautiful voice – Al Bano. Shy of his name, the debutant divided it into two parts, making it a pseudonym. The newcomer was received with a bang!

From now on, he held luck by the tail as tightly as he could! Fees, fame, many songs and music – the famous Al Bano is a welcome guest at any holiday and the highest paid host of events. And his song Nel sole inspires one director to make a film in which, of course, they also invite the main inspiration to the main role …

Romina Power and Al Bano – two in the sun
They had the main roles: a sixteen-year-old beauty and twenty-four-year-old musician wise by experience. Together they looked like a very duet of Romina Power and Al Banostranno, but every curious person noticed a spark slipping between the couple. Over time, a real flame of passion flared up. They appeared everywhere together. Al Bano reminded Romina of a father whom she had lost too early. Therefore, every word not shining with the beauty of a man was perceived by her with awe. He considered her the best woman in the world to match him, and therefore made an offer to follow the same path through life. She felt protected with him and agreed. Moreover, brought up on freedom, Romina was ready to accept the strict rules of the Italian Catholic family life.

 

“Who is it? Is this your Italian lover? ”Linda asked her daughter when she brought her fiancé to America to meet her, not hiding her contempt for the house that was on the doorstep. the duet of Romina Power and Al BanoStarshe for eight years, an ugly bespectacled man, without the necessary condition to support her beautiful daughter, did not like Mrs. Power at all. She was against their marriage, but she knew perfectly well that it was not possible to stop or ban anything to Romina. Therefore, on July 26, 1970, lovers went down the aisle, giving ill-wishers another reason to say a word. Probably all of Italy made bets, betting on how much the young family would last. Romina and Al Bano even here wiped their noses – they lived in marriage for more than 30 years.

“For me he is everything! – once said Romina. “My husband, workmate, ally, brother, and even, in some cases, my father, whom I lost too early.” We both have our own characters, and it would be foolish to hide what happens to argue, and sometimes even swear a lot. But even if we are angry with each other, then again the duet of Romina Power and Al Banomiris. We love and respect each other. ”
