What are the best songs of the summer of 2021 in Italy? As in each and every year, there’s a list of hits for the summer that the whole country or even the whole world is listening to. For this year, we put a list together for the best songs of the summer 2021.
For the top hit, the Italian slang word is “tormentoni” loosely translated as ‘catchy tunes’. To my deepest surprise was this year, 2021! I ended up doing the impossible. I liked and bought ( from iTunes) a song where Orietta Berti is singing: MILLE. Maybe I am getting too old… When I was young my mom and grandmother were used to listen to Orietta Berti singing tunes like “Fin che la barca va “. If you asked me if I would ever buy a song with Orietta Berti my answer was never in a million years, well, I was wrong! Mille became the best Italian summer song 2021, which you can hear literally on every corner, anywhere in Italy. also look at the 2022 list: https://lifeinitaly.com/2022-italian-summer-songs/

As I have mentioned, one of the best summer songs of 2021 in Italy is definitely the Mille, by Fedez, Achille Lauro, and Orietta Berti.

Baby K is one of my favorite artists when it comes to summer songs. She’s getting out each year a great summer hit that becomes quickly popular all around Italy. The summer song of 2021 from Baby K and Boomdabash is Mohicani. She became famous a few years ago with songs like Roma-Bankok (with Giusy Ferreri), Killer (with Tiziano Ferro), and last song’s hit witha special guest in the clip being Chiara Ferragni, Baby K – Non mi basta piű. Her music is always cheerful and great for those hot summer days, so we who love Baby K, we’re expecting the new song of the summer every year from her.

6. Maneskin – I wanna be your slave
The Maneskin was the winner of the Sanremo Music Festival 2021. Right after the Italian song competition, Maneskin won Eurovision 2021 as well.
