Notes: ~ From the Mario Lanza film 'The Seven Hills of Rome', this lovely song was written by actor Renato Rascel, who played Mario's cousin in the film. The American words were penned by Carl Sigman, writer of Perry's theme, 'Dream Along with Me'. Perry, the Italian chorus, and the large string orchestra, featuring two mandolins for Italian flavour, make this a recording to remember. It's a performance as Italian as the seven hills of that ancient city.
