Nicola Di Bari, stage name of Michael Scommegna (Zapponeta, September 29, 1940), is an Italian singer-songwriter.

He won two consecutive Sanremo Festival, in 1971 and 1972 (it was the fourth to get this result after Nilla Pizzi, who won them in 1951 and 1952 Domenico Modugno and Johnny Dorelli, who won them in 1958 and 1959) and Canzonissima in 1971; It is also one of the most famous Italian singers abroad, particularly in Latin America.

Some of his songs have become evergreens of Italian music, to the point of being re-recorded in subsequent years by other artists such as guitar sounds slower, engraved by Mina album uiallalla, or The First Beautiful Thing, played by Malika Ayane for the soundtrack of the film.

In his songs he often finds himself the subject of emigration and the great feeling of attachment to the native land and rural life, with references to the campaign and its colors.

One of the songs he had written - Zapponeta - is dedicated to his native country; another of his well-known title is country.
In 1964 he participated in the Cantagiro with Love returns home, having some success; in the same period there is also room for a cover of Burt Bacharach, I tend arms (Reach Out for Me). The following year is presented at the Sanremo Festival with My Friends (paired with Gene Pitney) and Cantagiro'll cry.

Back at the Festival in 1966 also with you waiting for me, and back again Cantagiro Three thousand drums, and again, for the fourth consecutive time, in Sanremo in 1967 with Look behind you, paired with Gene Pitney.

In these years the Jolly know and become friends with Luigi Tenco, and years later to dedicate an entire LP of the singer-songwriter songs.

These early achievements make him a household name, so that at the end of 1967 he was put under contract by RCA, which does affect a number of covers: If you ever speak to me, Italian version of Smile written by Charlie Chaplin for Limelight ; The world is gray the world is blue, the Italian version of Eric Charden song, which will be cited years later by Franco Battiato in his famous Cuccurucucu, and Eternally, still from the film Limelight; But there is still a great statement, that you will have in the early years of the next decade.

On December 21, he married Agnes Girardello, who will dedicate a few years after the Agnese song.
