BiographyStrambelli studied at the conservatory institute of Benedetto Marcello and was acquainted with American poet Ezra Pound and with Angelo Roncalli (Pope John XXIII). At the age of fifteen she left home to live in London and then Rome, where she began her career singing in the Piper Club. In 1966 she made her first single, "Ragazzo triste" ("Sad Boy"), the Italian version of the song "But You're Mine" by Sonny & Cher. It was the first pop song broadcast on Vatican Radio.Pravo followed that by recording numerous songs, the most popular being "Qui e là" ("Here and There"), "Se perdo te" ("If I Lose You", 1967, written by English songwriter Paul Korda), "La bambola" ("The Doll", 1968), "Sentimento" ("Feeling", 1968), "Il paradiso" ("Heaven", 1969, written by Lucio Battisti), "La solitudine" ("The Loneliness", with Robert Charlebois), "Pazza idea" ("Crazy Idea", 1973) and "Pensiero stupendo" ("Stupendous Thought", 1978).
