The group formed in 1969, with the name Sagittari and with a beat repertoire.[1] The group changed his name after the entrance of Ivano Fossati that replaced the Sagittari singer Riccardo Anselmi, in the late 1970.[2][3]

Since their first single "Canto di Osanna" (1971), presented at the Festival di Musica d'Avanguardia e di Nuove Tendenze, the group gained an immediate success.[1] In 1972 Delirium entered the Sanremo Music Festival with the song "Jesahel", reaching sixth place in the competition and peaking number one on the Italian hit parade.[2][4] After the new single "Haum" that Delirium presented at Un disco per l'estate Fossati left the group to start a solo career.[1][2] After two more albums the group disbanded in mid-1970s, until a reunion in early 2000s.[1][2]
