As expected foreign artists dominates the singles countdown and italian artists dominates the albums one. It's great to see two veterans/icons with the best selling album of the year (their first other collaboration album was a smash back in 1998 and is still to this day one of the best selling albums EVER in Italy). Again, as usual albums released at the end of the year kinda "saves" the situation and end up very high on the year-end chart.

I forgot to mention...i big shout-out to zago and his AMAZING work estimating italian sales..this year too he got the top twenty 99% right. And even outside the top20 looking at his estimations up until week 52 of 2016 and comparing them with the official YEC of FIMI you only have to switch a few positions here and there (the more you go down on the chart the more album sales are close to each other)
...but in the end very good work
