Between 1940 and 1941 begin to sing in the shows for the Armed Forces and in 1942 it receives a letter of the Eiar that invites it to participate to the competition for new voices. Well, Nilla Pizzi to the term of the selections turns out before on diecimila concurrent. When master Angelini, to the age deus the former machina of the Italian song, listens to it does not lend much attention to its voice. To discover it he is master Carl Zeme who inserts it in the own orchestra.
Little after Nilla begins to transmit from the microphones of the Eiar toing make one's debut with the brano Small house between the roses. Pleasant voice, motivetti allegros, without barocchismi: in 1944 the long and fortunate record adventure begins its. The debut in knows it of recording 20 February: with to Tawny Rattani, then with Goddess Garbaccio. It is the period of Dawn of the life, Will come, Those mazzolin of flowers, Tulipano of gold.
To unexpected the stop: the singer comes removed from the microphones of the Eiar because, according to the regimen, its modern voice risks to make the game of the enemy. Nilla Pizzi returns to the ribalta in 1946 with in pocket a record contract that the alloy in exclusive right for two years to the Voice of the master, and in the heart a feeling of love for master Angelini. In 1946, protested from the Cetra - it lands to you then, to the end of 1947 - it adopts also of the pseudonyms (Carmen Isa, Isa Laces, Conchita Velez, Ilda Tulli). Alternating romantici reasons to rumbe, conghe and samba, it becomes most popular with one long series of successes: Papà Oh, the ways en roses, Cocoricò, sad Me corazon, After you, Is too much late, Not aspect nobody.
In 1951 the boom. The Festival di Sanremo is born and she, protagonist of the manifestation with Achille Togliani, the pair Fasano and the Angelini orchestra, nine songs introduce you. It wins with Thanks of the fior - song that sells 35 mila copies - and it is classified also to according to place with the moon the silver garment. Its voice is by now warm, soft, pure, rich of one extraordinary pathos natural, deprives of trillanti accents.
Still in coast the following year: seven songs, the first one, the second and the third party place, respective with Flies dove, Poppies and geese and a woman prays. A record: Dove flies - the return of Trieste to Italy accompanies - ago the turn of the world, Poppies and geese come translate in forty languages and adopted from the Communist Party for The Manifest of the electoral campaign of that year. Nilla Pizzi passes to the history like the Queen of the song. In the same year the Festival of Naples is born that it regularly gains with Desire ' and sun, placing itself also to the third party place with Mergellina.
To the apex of the popolarità it records disc tens that become as many successes: Magdalena Maria, Deceit, Malasierra, Tradimento (where she lend the voice to Silvana Pampanini in the film Process to the city), Sad Sunday, All is possible. Then the numerous ones duetti with Gino Latilla that begins to make rubble in its heart and provokes the jealousy of master Angelini. In 1953 the first disappointment: to the Festival di Sanremo the brano Bell-ringer reveals a flop. Endured, but, I redeem: with other recordings - If in my heart you will read, Neapolitan Mandolino, Eternally - and with a film, we find ourselves in gallery, in which Nilla young Sofia Loren recites next to one.
Travolta also from sentimentali problems - hit dal tried suicide of Gino abandoned Latilla and from Angelini al Festival di Sanremo del 1954 - decides to leave all: record house, RAI, the master and the young person pugliese singer. Scritturata from the Rca, becomes leanest, makes blond woman, but it continues to collect consents. Also oltreoceano: in 1995 - after to have turned the film passionate Song - part for the America in ship, then in 1957 in Russia. In 1958 the great return: to the Festival di Sanremo, with the brano Ivy, it is classified to according to place (first is Domenico Modugno with In the painted blue of blue).
In the same year it gains the edition of Canzonissima. The year after is third to the Festival of Naples with Vieneme ' nzuonno and to the Festival di Sanremo it is introduced with three songs: Ours refrain, Always with you and It adores to me with which it gains the Prize of the Critic. The last participation in coast in 1960: the Guilty brano public square to the quarter place. But with the revolution operated from Modugno, the advent of the urlatori and the phenomenon beat, in Italy of years Sixty not is more place for she.
Nilla Pizzi takes the way of the exile: it opens an elegant one night for miliardari to Acapulco, supper with personages like Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis jr.. In Italy - it participates also to the first edition of the Cantagiro with a world for we and of the Disc for the summer with We get tan entirety - the cinema prefers. Before the three moschettieri, then the cinematographic reduction of the mandragola of Machiavelli, with Totò and Rosanna Schiaffino and Melodrammore (1978). It collects still other successes - in the 1970 Written for me, in 1972 With much nostalgia - but in its reign ripresenta in 1981 when Gianni Ravera remembers of she and is only invited it to introduce the Festival di Sanremo beside Claudius Cecchetto and Walloon Eleonora.
