Named Piero Bruno Hugo Fontana, he became known as Hugo del Carril. He was, without a doubt, a multi-talented artist. In addition to being a singer, he was a writer, director and film actor. Al tango came because of his admiration for Carlos Gardel , with whom he was often compared for his strong tone of voice.
It is said that his first relationship with tango was established as a child when he learned by heart the theme “Carasucia”. It was sung by a housekeeper while sweeping the sidewalk of her endearing neighborhood of Flores.
