1987: Primo tango #nf (Nuove Proposte Division)

In 1993, Paola had a terrible car accident which influences her life up to this day. Nevertheless, Paola managed to record 17 albums that had a huge success in Italy. She also took part in plenty of Italian song contests such as Festivalbar or Il Cantagiro.
As the years went on, Paola had a lot hits in Italy. Apart from the Sanremo’s songs, she got a wider success with E mi arriva il mare (with Riccardo Cocciante), Sai che è un attimo, Mi chiamo Luka, Mani giunte, Io sono and Danza intorno al sole.
Paola is definitely one of the best Italian songwriters, touring all over Italy and taking part in many charity events.
The song for OSC 2017 is called Fatti bella per te and was written by Giulia Anania, Luca Chiaravalli, Davide Simonetta and by the artist herself.
