Perry Como – Arrivederci Roma

Perry Como – Arrivederci Roma

“Arrivederci Roma” (English: “Goodbye, Rome”) is the title and refrain of a popular Italian song, composed by Renato Rascel, with lyrics by Pietro Garinei and Sandro Giovannini. It was published in 1955 as part of the soundtrack of the Italo-American musical film with the same title, released as Seven Hills of Rome in English. In the movie, the song is interpreted by the leading character, played by the American actor and singer Mario Lanza. Carl Sigman wrote the lyrics for the English language version of the movie.

Arrivederci which literally means “until we see each other again”, is a common Italian equivalent of “goodbye”. The original lyrics express the nostalgia of a Roman man for the dinners and short-lived love affairs he had with foreign tourists who came to Rome. It recalls the popular legend associated with the Trevi Fountain.

Aside from Perry Como this song was covered by a myriad of performers from Connie Francis, Sergio Franchi, Dean Martin, Jerry Vale, Vic Damone, Julius LaRosa, Nat King Cole and many others.
