The headliner of the Haapsalu Wine Music Festival on June 1 is Ricchi E Poveri. The association was formed in 1967 in Genoa, in the Italian province of Liguria. The band’s formula for success became a mixture of Italian melodic pop music and inspiration from better-known US bands. The ensemble won the Sanremo Music Festival in 1985 and performed at the Eurovision Song Contest. In the 1980s and 1990s, the musicians’ repertoire included the best-known Italian hits of that time, “Mamma Maria”, “Made in Italy” and “Se m’innamoro”.
