"Era" (English translation: "It Was") was the Italian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1975, performed in Italian language by Wess & Dori Ghezzi.

The song is a ballad, with both singers describing how different they feel now that they are in a relationship - presumably with each other. They describe the experience as being very good fun.

The song was performed nineteenth on the night (following Sweden's Lars Berghagen with "Jennie, Jennie"). At the close of voting, it had received 115 points, placing 3rd in a field of 19.

It was succeeded as Italian representative at the 1976 Contest by Al Bano & Romina Power with "We'll Live It All Again".
