Legend hath it that lyricist Franco Migliacci fell into an alcohol-induced sleep and dreamed that he painted his hands and face blue and was carried up to the sky by the wind.

His composer friend Domenico Modugno wrote the tune that was called “Nel Blu Di Pinto Di Blu”, more popularly known by it’s chorus as “Volare”.
