Her first single "Ragazzo triste", released in 1966, was the first pop song aired on Vatican Radio. In 2011 she participated - for the eighth time - in the Italian song contest, the San Remo Music Festival.
She became famous still very young as "the Piper girl", from the name of a fashion music club in Rome where she used to sing in the '60 years. She has experimented every kind of music over the 40 years of her career, from early pop songs to electronic, chinese music and rock; her masterpiece is the record "Oltre l'Eden...", published in 1989 and reprinted on CD again in 2006.
