Interesting story, this singer actually wouldn't say he was from Polignano a Mare because it was like saying he was from stickville, nowhere...but he became quite famous and the area gained a lot from him. Look up his song "Volare"... you'll be singing it on the way home it's so catchy. The view from this statue is pretty stunning as... More

while we were in polignano after lunch and after window shopping, we scrolled the street to piazza Domineco Modugno where the statue is erected. On a beautiful day, it is a point of attraction where tourists and locals pose next to the statue for a picture. Next to the ocean, I imagine the breeze and a full moon at night.... More

I grew up listening Domenico Modugno. All my childhood came to my mind. And it is in a beautiful waterfront square.

The statue of this revered singer is located right outside our B&B, and is a popular meeting place and photo op for both tourists and locals. He sang Volare, and indeed seems to be flying in the coastal breeze.

Lost of communal singing is allowed. One of Eurovision's heroes but more importantly one of Italy's folk heroes, culturally, socially and politically.
