Italy's long awaited return to Eurovision last year got a follow up in Baku.
Nina Zilli (Maria Chiara Fraschetta) represented the country on its 2nd Eurovision this century.
San Remo song Per Sempre written by Roberto Casalina and Nina Zilli was to be the Eurovision song for Italy, but in a surprise move L'Amore E Femmina was announced as the ESC entry.
L'Amore E Femmina is the title track of Nina Zilli's latest album (see below). The song is written by Nina Zilli, Christian Rabb, Kristoffer Sjokvist, Frida Molander and Charlie Mason.

For Eurovision a biligual version in English and Italian is recorded. Listen and watch here.

In 2010 Nina Zilli participated in the junior section of the Sanremo contest with L’Uomo Che Amava Le Donne which can be found on her second album Sempre Lontano. She won the critics Mia Martini award and the press award in the Nuova Generazione section.
All the songs from her debut mini-album Nina Zilli (2009) are also included on the second album.

Sanremo 2012
Last year the Eurovision entry was the winner from the giovani section now called SanremoSocial.
The Sanremo junior selection in 2012 is won by Alessandro Casillo with the song E'Vero (Che Si Sai), but he isn't eligible to go to Eurovision because he's too young.

On the final night of the Sanremo 2012 contest the Eurovision entry for Baku was announced by Azerbaijans winners Ell and Nikki.
The 'big' 2012 Sanremo contest was won by Emma with Non E' l'Inferno.
Other contestants familiar to Eurovision fans were Matia Bazar (Eurovision 1979) Loredana Berté (Mia Martini's sister) and Italian legend Lucio Dalla.

Sanremo Compilations
There are two Sanremo 2012 CDs this year. (So far) only the 10 track CD San Remo 2012 (Universal Strategic) has the Nina Zilli song (and it's also the only one with the winner by Emma and the Matia Bazar song.)
The 16 track album Super San Remo 2012 (Columbia) does not include the Zilli track.

You can listen to the eight SanremoSocial songs through Sanremosocial's facebook.
