Emilio Pericoli was an Italian pop singer, guitarist and pianist, popular in the early 1960's. In his youth, he was briefly engaged as a vocalist in a dance band. He also harboured aspirations to become a dramatic actor and appeared on stage with Isa Barzizza's company in the love story "Valentina". He also appeared in a few small film roles, but this did not lead to a full-time acting career. Instead, in 1959, Pericoli was signed by Ricordi Records for a compilation of classic Italian/Neapolitan songs, including "Anema e core". Read more...
