Italian singer, actor and television personality.
Pappalardo started his career in 1971 with the song "Una donna". He obtained his first success in 1972 with the R'n'B single "E' ancora giorno", written like some of his other songs of the time by the duo Lucio Battisti-Mogol, which ranked second in the Italian hit parade. After some other minor hits, such as the songs "Segui lui" and "Come bambini", Pappalardo had his major success in 1979 with the ballad "Ricominciamo". In the mid-eighties, following the commercial failure of the two albums Immersione and Oh! Era ora he focused on his acting career, usually playing tough men and villains.
In 2003 Pappalardo had a significant personal success as a contestant of the reality show L'Isola dei Famosi (the Italian version of Celebrity Survivor). In 2004 he took part at the Sanremo Music Festival with the song "Nessun consiglio."
