"Nessuno mi può giudicare" (English: "Nobody can judge me") is an Italian pop song written by Luciano Beretta, Miki Del Prete, Daniele Pace and Mario Panzeri. The song premiered at the sixteenth edition of the Sanremo Music Festival, with a double performance by Caterina Caselli and Gene Pitney, and placed at the second place.
The Caselli's version was a massive success, in spite of her being almost unknown at the time, and peaked at the first place on the Italian hit parade for several weeks. It is considered as the song which consecrated Caselli to fame. Caselli also recorded a French version ("Baisse un peu la radio") and a Spanish version ("Ninguno me puede juzgar") of the song. Gene Pitney's version was also a minor hit, peaking at the eight place on the Italian hit parade.
The lyrics, consisting of an confession of betrayal and of a following attempt at reconciliation, were seen as an anticipation of the moral revolution and feminist themes which exploded a few years later.
The song had been previously intended to be performed by Adriano Celentano, who also recorded a demo but eventually preferred to compete in the festival with the song "Il ragazzo della via Gluck".
The song was adapted into a musicarello film with the same name, directed by Ettore Maria Fizzarotti and starring Laura Efrikian and the same Caterina Caselli.
