More information about Mala Femmena 

Malafemmena is a song written by the Neapolitan actor Totò (Antonio de Curtis) in 1951. It has become one of the most popular Italian songs, a classic of the Canzone Napoletana genre, and has been recorded by many artists including the popular American Neopolitan singer Jimmy Roselli. (The “other Italian Singer” from Hoboken). We Love Jimmy Roselli.

Totò dedicated the song, which is in the Neapolitan dialect, to his wife, Diana Bandini, after they separated in 1950. It was first sung by Antonio Basurto, then by Mario Abbate before becoming a hit for Giacomo Rondinella.
