Andrea Bocelli had the best-selling album in the world in 2001 with Cieli Di Toscana, an affectionate tribute to the singer’s Tuscan’s roots. The romantic songs collected here all relate to that region of Italy, including one of Bocelli’s most popular songs, Mille Lune Mille Onde, made even more famous in a television commercial for a brand of pasta. This album would remain Bocelli’s top US album until 2009.

In Cieli di Toscana, tenor Andrea Bocelli pays tribute to his Tuscan heritage through performances of a number of romantic Italian-language songs, old and new, that relate to the Northern Italian region associated with high quality olive oil and unspoiled, pristine coastline. As such, Cieli di Toscana serves as a sort of Tuscan counterpart to Bocelli’s album of Neapolitan standards, Sentimento. While powerhouse producer Caterina Caselli Sugar’s arrangements are dated — they smack of the Europop sound of the 1980s — Bocelli’s voice has such a warm and loveable personality that it is impossible for him to rub the listener the wrong way. In these relatively simple songs, Bocelli draws on his operatic skills as a singer only very sparingly, applying vibrato to notes when he is in need of more power or a more secure sense of pitch. Most of Cieli di Toscana is done in a pure, “pop” voice that’s as clear and unpretentious as the olive oil produced by the region of which he is singing, and it is a joy to hear.
Cieli di Toscana (in English, Skies of Tuscany) was a sales blockbuster in the EU upon its release in 2001, moving millions of units in only a few weeks and occupying the top spot on charts worldwide. The album is not a natural fit for American audiences, but it got a boost nonetheless in the United States through the appearance of the song “Mille Lune Mille Onde” in the background of a television commercial. While the opulent booklet provides complete texts and English translations, it would’ve been nice to have a little background on the music itself — not present here. Of the popular albums that Bocelli has recorded, this one is probably the best so far, and certainly the one that is most accessible to American listeners. –AllMusic Review by Uncle Dave Lewis
