On 27 February 1993, the song was announced the winner of the competition in the newcomers' section, receiving 7464 votes. The single reached the first position on the Italian Singles Chart, and later became an Italian standard. Following the success obtained in Italy, in late 1993 the single was released in the rest of Europe, reaching the top 5 in France and topping the Dutch Top 40 Singles Chart and the Belgian Singles Chart. In 1994 Pausini released a Spanish language version of the song, titled "La soledad" and included in her first Spanish language album, Laura Pausini. An English language version of the song, adapted by Tim Rice and titled "La solitudine (Loneliness)" was recorded by Laura Pausini and released as a single on 19 June 1995 to promote her self-titled compilation album. The song was re-recorded as a slower, more dramatic ballad with live instrumentation for her 2001 compilation album The Best of Laura Pausini: E ritorno da te. The same arrangement was used for the new version of the Spanish counterpart of the song, included in Lo mejor de Laura Pausini: Volveré junto a ti.
