Famous Italian singer Robertino Loretti, 56, visits Russia again. He will have a concert in the city of Penza, October 10>
The legendary Italian singer visited Russia for the first time rather late, in 1989, which destroyed the myth that he had lost his voice.
Loretti himself explained the long break with the factor of aging, when boys’ voices break in the awkward age, and that it had taken him a long time to recover after an accident while skiing. Robertino Loretti sang his “Small Kiss” at the age of seventeen in San Remo.
Currently, the singer performs successful tours in Europe, Japan, the USA, and Russia, where people still can listen to his famous “O, sole mio!", “ Torna a Surriento,” and “Jamaica." His voice has nothing in common with the voice the singer had in his youth, but it resembles a dramatic baritone. By the way, the Italian singer is a frequent guest in Russia, as he likes the warm welcome of the Russian people. Moreover, Loretti is on friendly terms with Russian singers Muslim Magomayev, Tamara Sinyavskaya, and Joseph Kobzon. Robertino Loretti lives in Rome, close to Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni; he owns a club, a bar, and a restauran, and he also breeds horses. The legendary singer has two children from his first marriage and one son from the second. Larisa Suetenko PRAVDA.Ru

The choice of the city of Helsinki is not incidental as the capital of Finland had hosted US-Soviet negotiations on the limitation of nuclear stockpiles in 1969
