"Il ragazzo della via Gluck" is a famous Italian song by artist Adriano Celentano. The lyrics meaning "The boy from Gluck Street" were by Luciano Beretta and Miki Del Prete and music by Celentano himself. It was released in 1966 . It was arranged by Detto Mariano.
It became a favourite song in France when covered by Eddy Marnay with French lyrics as "La maison où j'ai grandi". Marnay translated the lyrics from Italian to French.

Looking back at the song in 2004, she said she felt an emotion of sadness at the time she heard the song for her mother (an accountant's assistant), who had raised Françoise and her younger sister alone. The lyrics in French were reflection of her life she admitted: "Quand je me tourne vers mes souvenirs/ je revois la maison ou j'ai grandi./ Il me revient des tas de choses..."
