The great P.J. attended Western Military Academy,Alton,Illinois in 1956 & part of 1957.
   The motto of this great place was in Latin: "Mens Sana in Corpore Sano".
   Translated into English that means: "A sound mind in a sound body".
  This Academy opened way back in 1879 but unfortunately closed in 1971.

Remember P.J. singing so wonderfully well in the San Remo Song Festival in Italy in January,1966?
  "Per Questo Voglio Te" translates into English as "I Want You Because Of This".

The other song he did was "Quando Tornera". This translates from Italian to English as "When Will He Be Back".
   Both were beautiful songs & P.J.'s Italian was excellent.When he came back to England he said that he would get both songs translated into English & he would then record both.But sadly this never happened but happily both of the songs sung by P.J. in Italian were released on a single in 1966 in Italy only.
   I'm not sure whether these two Italian songs have ever been officially released in England on a vinyl or CD disc but I have a 20 track Proby CD called "Rarities-Vol.4" & both the Italian versions by P.J. are on this great disc. It's not a legal release so it's very hard to find.

Hi Ron, both of these great Italian songs have been officially released in the UK on CDs.
'Per Questo' was on 'Rough Velvet' and 'Quando Tornera' on 'The EMI Years'.
I am sure you have both of these in your collection.
