AllMusic Review by

Viva Italia is a budget-priced collection that packages hits from three well-known Italian-language pop artists. Disc one is the best of Al Bano & Romina Power; the second music from the trio Ricchi e Proveri; and the final disc features selections from crooner Adriano Celentano. It's not a particularly consistent collection, as Celentano's vocal pop crooner style is out of step with the broad, ABBA-like sounds of the other artists. But nevertheless, the competitive price for such a large amount of music is a definite selling point.
