Songs that didn't make it to Sanremo
This song had an even more controversial background. Sinigallia was announced as a competitor and, as such, allowed to take part in the main competition. His first song (as singers proposed two songs in the 2014 edition of the Festival), Una rigenerazione, was excluded by expectators. He stayed in Sanremo until the organization found out this song had already been performed live, which is against the rules.
Tony Maiello, who wrote this song, was going to submit this song sometime around 2011 (he won the Newcomers section in 2010), but he didn't. He later gave the song to Laura Pausini, who recorded and included it in her 2015 album Simili (in Hispanophone markets, Similares).
This song was ready at the time of Tiziano's first album, 2001's Rosso relativo, but wasn't included in the final roster because his record company didn't know if it would sell. If it didn't, they would submit this song for Sanremo 2002. If the song had been included in the album, it couldn't have been submitted because it was already known.
