Occasionally he was also the author, with 35 songs submitted on his behalf. Throughout his career he has sold over 45 million records worldwide.

For the fiery temper was nicknamed The little king during an episode of the Red and Black show, conducted by Corrado.

Trastevere Via della Lungara (the street where the Roman prison of Regina Coeli), very dear soul folk of the city (in the fifties lived in via Angelo Tittoni, also in Trastevere), then, as soon as finances allow him , he bought an apartment in Monteverde Nuovo, via Folco Portinari.

The first singing contest in which it participates, overcame it with Chitarratella song, a great success of Carlo Buti, Claudio followed. It is the same Claudius, who has repeatedly stated that Buti was his idol. The "little king" in his career he has recorded many songs that are part of butiano repertoire.

Un amore cosė grande - Claudio Villa
Un amore cosė grande - Claudio Villa



"Un amore cosė grande" is an old song of the repertoire of Italian music and was written by Guido Maria Ferilli for music and Antonella May for text in 1976. The song was born at the request of the teacher said Mariano who edited the ' arrangement for the first version or the one engraved by Mario del Monaco is in a lp of 1976 in a 45 the same year with "Dicitencello vuje", another great classic. Del Monaco, excluding small experiences in pop music, was primarily a content and the above song was then written precisely for this type of artist. Over the years, the song has been taken over by larger industry players such as Luciano Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli. But the song, since the global success, has been the subject of numerous Italian and foreign cover and one of the most surprising and, surely, the most exciting was that proposed by Claudio Villa during the Sanremo Festival in 1984, of course, out of the race. The great vocal skills of Villa gave to that song a popular size giving it a new light in the world of pop music. Naturally, however, the interpretation of that song, with those shades, it is not for everyone especially if you do not belong to the category of the tenors. Villa are not predominantly a tenor, he had those shades and again wanted to try their hand at this performance with great results. His performance, to date, is that perhaps it remains in the collective memory for both the artist's popularity for both the beauty of the song. Claudio Villa, true Trastevere, was one of the leading interpreters of Italian music from the '60s until his whole life that he died in 1987 due to a heart attack. His connubbio with music also accompanied him on the day of death, which occurred just during the '87 Sanremo Festival and the same stage of the Ariston Pippo Baudo, conductor of that edition, announced live death causing a general commotion in both audience behind the scenes. Villa was a character not always easy, aware of his great talent appeared sometimes cocky and arrogant, but was loved by everyone even by his rival-friends of the time for its authenticity and for what he knew to transmit with a microphone in his hands. Returning to the track, more recently, has been taken either by the daughter of Claudius, Manuela Villa in 2000 by Francesco Renga in 2009. A success, then, that you will never see the end but always find new interpreters ready to give life to this masterpiece .
