The life of the young Loretti spun in a kaleidoscope. Tours followed one after the other, the plates came out in millions of copies. They were sold in the USSR. Robertino singer Robertino Loretti dreamed of visiting this country, far and mysterious for him. However, he did not know that in the USSR it was not customary for artists to pay as much as all over the world.The main income from any concerts received by the state. Nevertheless, the Soviet leadership wanted very much to arrange a Robertino concert in Moscow, because his popularity here was great. One of the Komsomol leaders went to Italy. But Robertino’s impresario, bearing in mind that performing in the USSR was financially unprofitable, did not allow the singer to meet with the Soviet representative.
There was a difficult situation. Tour Robertino was looking forward to the whole Soviet Union. And the public would hardly be satisfied with any explanations whatsoever. We had to do something. The resourceful official came up with the myth that the boy had lost his voice.
It was a fiction. Robertino’s voice did not lose, but the complex process of restructuring the voice did not pass without a trace. During a voice mutation, one of the Danish music singer Robertino Lorettiprofessors said that the boy needed to wait with performances for at least 4-5 months to make a tenor out of his voice. But entrepreneur Robertino did not want to heed this advice. And again began touring in different countries.
Soon Robertino really got sick, as everyone claimed, and seriously. In Austria, on the set of the film “Kavalina Ross”, he caught a very cold. Treatment was necessary. In Rome, a boy was given an injection and carelessly polluted with a needle. A tumor was formed, it captured the right thigh and was already approaching the spine. Little Italian was threatened with paralysis. Robertino’s life was saved by one of the best professors of Rome. Everything ended well. And, having recovered completely, the singer returned to work in Copenhagen.
Robertino, but not the same
The whole world was looking forward to returning to the stage of the singer and speculated on what his “new” voice would be. Singer Robertino Loretti Loretti with honor out of a difficult situation. His new voice was not a lyrical soft tenor, as might be expected, but rather a dramatic tenor. Speeches resumed. And in 1964, Loretti entered the top five strongest performers at the Italian song festival in San Remo with the song “Little Kiss”. He played both new and old songs that the audience loved. Among them are the hits of the fifties “Jamaica” and “Return to Sorrento”. They sounded new, but unfortunately less interesting than before. The glory that the boy Robertino had, the adult Roberto was no longer …
In 1973, Loretti decides to change his occupation. There were several reasons why he left the stage. First, singer Robertino Lorettipevets tired of the life of a guest performer. I wanted to live another life. Secondly, styles began to change on the stage. New musical styles were coming into fashion. They were not close to Roberto. For the rest of his life he remained a fan of traditional Italian songs.
Having finished with solo performances, Loretti engaged in producer activities. This did not bring him much income, but did not ruin him. For 10 years he was engaged in commerce. However, in 1982 he returned to touring activities, because at night he dreamed of concerts and applause.
The way back to Olympus is incredibly thorny. Getting back is always more difficult than going. But Loretti passed this road with dignity. He is one of the few singers in the world who never uses a phonogram. For nearly ten years, Loretti’s voice rested, the singer Robertino Loretti and it went to his advantage. In the eighties, the singer gained a second youth. He began to record and opera arias, and Neapolitan songs, and pop hits. And in 1989, an old dream came true. He went on tour in the Soviet Union. It was then that the myth of the loss of voice was finally dispelled.
The Loretti family lives in a huge house with a garden. The singer owns a nightclub, a bar and a restaurant, in which he often sings himself. In Rome, he has a stable where he rears thoroughbred horses and trains them for racing. Robertino’s other hobby is cooking. He loves cooking dinners for family and guests.
The first wife of the singer died, leaving him two children, and the second his wife’s name is Maura, she is 15 years younger than Roberto. They had a son Lorenzo – an exact copy of his father, from whom he inherited a beautiful voice. He is predicted star future. But Loretti Sr. is not enthusiastic about such a prospect, because behind the tinsel of applause and enthusiasm of the fans there is hard work. Not everyone can do it. Loretti wants his son to get serious singer Robertino Loretti first. This can be understood, since Roberto himself failed to do this because of a series of endless tours.
About himself, Loretti says that he is a big liar. And while always sly smiles. He is an earnest catholic.
