Dino, stage name of Eugenio Zambelli (Verona, May 3, 1948), is an Italian singer.

The son of an official of the Institute of Fine Arts of Verona, with good intonation, takes part in the first competitions as still as a child singer often finds himself competing with his own age singer, Gigliola Cinquetti, which meets for the first time in 1959 participating in a show of operetta for children and that, two years later than first arriving at Pinocchietto golden singing the famous success of Mina's thousand blue bubbles.

It was during one of these performances in December 1961 he was noticed by Ennio Ottofaro, who invites him to join as lead vocalist in Kings.

In 1963 the Kings participate in the second edition of strangers Ariccia Festival (won the year before by Rita Pavone), coming in first place: Teddy Reno is impressed by the singer's voice, and therefore proposes to Eugenio a contract with the ARC with the name of Dino art, while the Kings they come in as a support group of the singer. Curiously, Dino is not a name imposed by the record company, but the family nickname that is given to the small Eugene because of its similarity with the boyfriend of her aunt, who died in a car accident, which was the name.

The success [edit | change wikitext]
The first 45 laps of Dino, We were friends / So as you are, is published in the spring of 1964: the song on side A is recorded edition of Cantagiro (in the young), in which the singer arrives in the first few stages, becoming soon be a teen idol (also for his good looks) and getting a good sales success (higher than that of the winning song, the desire of summer Paul Moscow).

It is called as a guest on several television shows, including The Dream show, presented by Mike Bongiorno, and the success of the disc is passed by the second, containing the A side a song written for him by Blanche Dubois and Sergio Bardotti, I Can See in the eye, which becomes one of the best known songs of the '60s (and later will also be re-recorded by Giorgio Gaber and Franco Battiato), and on the back of a cover of the Beatles should have known better, translated by Don Backy as Try understand.

With their third album, The Dance of the compass, takes a break with the Kings: the record company chooses fact the arrangement of Ennio Morricone and not the one, much more rock, the complex [1], and Dino, the choice set before imposed on him by other members of the group, adapts, while the Kings, at this point, refuse to accompany the singer to Cantagiro and abandon the ARC and are replaced by another group from Verona, the Misfits, changing the name in Rollicks and become the new complex of Dino.

Anyway Dancing Compass takes part in the Cantagiro, this time between the Big, achieving much success (on side B there is But there is a moment of the day, cover of You've lost That lovin 'feelin' the Righteous Brothers ); then publishes his first album, Dino, and also participates in various musicals: is the protagonist in The sixteen Luigi Petrini and Very High Pressure Enzo Trapani (with Gianni Morandi, Françoise Hardy, Lucio Dalla, Nino Taranto and Agnes Spaak) launching respectively You know, you know, you know (arranged by Bruno Canfora) and The ice guy (on even Morricone music). These two songs will give birth to her fourth single.

The first contact with the cinema was the case with the proposal of the director Luchino Visconti for a role in the movie Thousand Delights, then entrusted to Jean Sorel, the sixteen year old Dino refused to devote himself entirely to singing career.

The success continued in subsequent years, with a new participation in the Cantagiro in 1966 with Who better than me (written by Paul Anka, with the back begins the love, by Lucio Dalla), a Royal Flush of the same year with Little my small, and in 1967 with the Italian engraving of a song by Stevie Wonder, a place in the sun, which becomes the sun belongs to everyone and that is also sung by the same singer.

In 1968 he participated in the Sanremo Festival with My eyes, sung in tandem with Wilma Goich (this song will then be taken up by Tom Jones and become his workhorse with the title of Help Yourself); then a public cover in Italian of The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel, entitled Your image.
