La mia citta is the song for Italy at Eurovision 2014

La Mia Città (My City) is the title of the song that Emma will perform on behalf of Italy at the Final of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest the next 10th of May in Copenhagen, Denmark.

This year RAI, the Italian broadcaster, decided in an internal selection that the act that should sing for them in Copenhagen is the successful female artist Emma, who feels very proud of the task assigned to her of representing Italy.

Italy has only finished inside the Top 10 of the Eurovision Song Contest since their return to the competition in 2011: 2nd with Raphael Gualazzi's Madness Of Love, Nina Zilli placed 9th in Baku with L'Amore E Femmina and Marco Mengoni was 7th last year with L'Essenziale.
Emma Marrone, born in Florence in 1984, started singing as a child. She recalls listening to Mina or Take That, whithout having any particular idols. It wasn't until 2010 that she made her breakthrough in the talent show Amici, which she won, and since then her career can be summarize in hit after hit achieving several gold, platinum and multiplatinum discs for the sales of her music and other accolades of the Italian music industry.

In 2013 she released her third album Schiena, which was the 5th biggest selling album of the year and the top selling by a female artist. Besides Italy Emma is also popular in Switzerland.

Even though she hasn't been chosen from the list of artists participating in the 2014 Sanremo Festival, coincidentally, Emma came second in Sanremo in 2011 in a collaboration with the band Modà and the song Arriverà. She won the festival on her own the following year with Non È L'Inferno.

I like Italian songs and this is not as good as the last year's Italy Eurovision song. In ant case this is not bad at all!!
