Pericoli had a top ten hit in the U.S. in 1962 with ‘Al Di La’.

Much of Pericoli’s success both in Italy and in the rest of the world can be attributed to the Sanremo Music Festival in Sanremo, Italy. His international hit Al Di La was a cover version of the 1961 festival winner as sung by Betty Curtis and Luciano Tajoli. It went to number 6 on the U.S. Hot 100 and 3 on the Adult Contemporary chart along with number 30 in the U.K.

The next year, he entered the festival with Tony Renis with the song Quando Quando Quando. While they didn’t win, his recording went on to become one of his best known. The song would go on to include a songwriting credit for Pat Boone for the English version which was later recorded by Englebert Humperdinck and Michael Buble.

In 1963, he and Renis entered again, finally winning the festival with Uno Per Tutte. He later went on to become a television actor.
