Gigliola Cinquetti was born in Verona. At the age of 16 she won the Sanremo Music Festival in 1964 singing “Non Ho L’Et” (”I’m not old enough”), with music composed by Nicola Salerno and lyrics by Mario Panzeri. Her victory enabled her to represent Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest 1964 with the same song, and she went on to claim her country’s first ever victory in the event. This became an international success, even entering UK Top 75, traditionally a no-go area for Italian material. In 1966, she recorded “Dio, come ti amo” (”God, How I Love You”), which became another world-wide hit.

The Lambretta was a line of motor scooters originally manufactured in Milan, Italy, by Innocenti but also manufactured, under license by Societe Industrielle de Troyes” (S.I.T.) in France, NSU in Germany, Serveta in Spain, API in India, Pasco in Brazil, Auteca in Colombia, and Siambretta in Argentina. In 1972, the Indian government bought the Milanese factory and the rights to the Lambretta name, creating Scooters India Limited, or SIL. Today, the Innocenti brand name rights are owned by Fiat, whereas the Lambretta, and Lambro, brand names are owned by SIL and are licensed to many companies who want association with the iconic brand, including: Taiwanese manufactured scooters; Indian light vehicle engines; British fashion clothing; and Chinese produced watches.
