Autostop - Patty Pravo

Patty Pravo was born on April 9, 1948 in Venice, Italy as Nicoletta Strambelli. She studied at the conservatory institute of Benedetto Marcello. At the age of fifteen, she left home to live in London and then Rome where she began her career singing in the Piper Club. In 1966 she made her first single, 'Ragazzo triste' ('Sad Boy'), an Italian version of the song 'But you're mine' by Sonny & Cher.

In 1970 Patty hosted her own programme called 'Bravo Pravo', broadcast on French television, and in 1978 appeared in the highly controversial Italian TV show, Stryx, where she wore provocative clothing which attracted much attention. 'Autostop' was released in 1979 and reached number 13 in the Italian chart.
