Tony Dallara, pseudonym of Antonio Lardera (Campobasso, 30 June 1936), is an Italian singer and TV personality.

He is the oldest living singer to have won the San Remo Festival as a soloist (1960 edition).

The 45 rpm is published in December 1957: in a short time As before it reaches the first place of the Italian hit-parade, remaining for many weeks and selling 300,000 copies, in the Netherlands for 5 weeks and in Flanders in Belgium. For the time it establishes a sales record and will become an "evergreen" of Italian music. In addition to the validity of the song and the musical base, the merit of success goes mainly to the technique and the vocal power of Dallara, for which the new term screamer is coined: it is detached from the Italian melodic tradition of the Villa, Tajoli, Togliani and rather connects to new US models. The song, in the English version, will enter the repertoire of the Platters, with Tony Williams in the main voice.

Called to perform military service (the CAR in Avellino together with a young pianist, Franco Bracardi), continues between the end of 1958 and 1959 to publish many 45 laps of success, as I'll tell you, Blue shiver, Do not leave, Ice boiling, Julia. Also in 1959 he made two films: August, my women, I do not know about Guido Malatesta, with Memmo Carotenuto and Raffaele Pisu, and the Juke-Box boys of Lucio Fulci, with Betty Curtis, Fred Buscaglione, Gianni Meccia and Adriano Celentano.

In 1960 he won the Sanremo Festival paired with Renato Rascel with Romantica. In the same year he shot two other films: Sanremo, the great challenge of Piero Vivarelli, with Teddy Reno, Domenico Modugno, Sergio Bruni, Joe Sentieri, Gino Santercole, Adriano Celentano, Renato Rascel and Odoardo Spadaro, and I Teddy Boys of Domenico's Song Paolella, with Delia Scala, Tiberio Murgia, Ave Ninchi, Teddy Reno and Mario Carotenuto. With the Romantica also won the 1960 edition of Canzonissima.

Romantica is its greatest success, it is translated into several languages, even in Japanese, and the French version is made famous by the interpretation of Dalida, who had already recorded the French version of Come prima.

In 1961 he recorded another famous performance: La novia (piece of music) which reached the first place in the charts for eight weeks in Italy and Flanders in Belgium and reached the eighth position in the Netherlands and took part again in the Sanremo festival in couple with Gino Paoli with A living man; in the same year he again won Canzonissima with Bambina, Bambina, which is his last great success.
