A song for Maria
Derived from the Hebrew Myriam, the name Maria is by far one of the most widespread in the world, and this is undoubtedly due to the fact of being the name of Christ’s mother. Present in practically all languages and cultures (albeit with the appropriate variations), the name Maria also takes the lead in many Italian songs, from the origins of modern popular music to present day, and some of the songs on this playlist with Maria in their titles have been big hits in the past, and as a result have also had many versions performed by various singers. Carlo Buti and Crivel, Emilio Livi and Giacomo Rondinella are just some of the Italian artists who created a song around the name Maria. The comedians Vanni and Romigioli also sang and recited a typical song around the name of Maria, as well as the Casadei Orchestra with its Trio Vocale, which dedicated a classic waltz to Maria for a twirl on the dance floor.
