"Il Sole Nella Pioggia" is the eleventh studio album by Italian singer-songwriter Alice, released in 1989 on EMI Music.

The album whose title translates as "The Sun in the Rain" includes the single releases "Visioni" and "Il Sole Nella Pioggia" as well as popular tracks like "Tempo Senza Tempo", "Le Ragazze Di Osaka" and the Friulian "Anìn A Grîs". "Il Sole Nella Pioggia" features contributions from a number of international musicians who had previously collaborated with contemporary British artists in the alternative rock genre like Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush and David Sylvian: drummer Steve Jansen and keyboardist Richard Barbieri - both former members of the band Japan, trumpeter Jon Hassell, guitarist Dave Gregory, Turkish flutist Kudsi Erguner as well as Italian jazz trumpeter Paolo Fresu.

"Le Ragazze Di Osaka" ("The Girls From Osaka") was originally recorded by the composer Eugenio Finardi and included on his 1983 album "Dal Blu", Finardi had previously written the track "Laura Degli Specchi" ("Laura With The Mirrors") for Alice, included on her 1982 album "Azimut". The medieval French folk song and nursery rhyme "Orléans" (also known as "Le Carillon De Vendôme" or "Les Cloches De Vendôme") sung accapella was originally arranged by David Crosby of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and recorded on his 1971 debut album "If I Could Only Remember My Name". "Il Sole Nella Pioggia" closes with the English language track "Now and Forever", a duet with Peter Hammill of British progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator.

Five of the tracks were written by Italian composer and singer Juri Camisasca, who also wrote "Nomadi" on the 1986 album "Park Hotel".

The track "I Cieli Del Nord" was a re-recording of "Le Scogliere Di Dover", first released on the Japanese compilation "Kusamakura" in 1988.
