Fabrizio Moro

Fabrizio Moro is an Italian vocalist and songwriter who rose to prominence after winning the Newcomers' section of the 'Sanremo Music Festival' in 2007. Born in Rome to Calabrian parents, Moro played guitar as a child and wrote his first song at age 15. Early performance experience included several years playing in a cover band on the pub and club circuit, performing songs by rock artists including U2, The Doors and Guns N' Roses. In 2000, Moro released his debut self-titled album and took part for the first time in the Sanremo Music Festival, competing in the Newcomers' section with his song 'Un Giorno Senza Fine' and placing 13th out of 18 performers. He was much more successful in his second attempt at the competition in 2007, winning both the Newcomers' section and the 'Mia Martini' Critic's Award in the same year for his anti-mafia song 'Pensa.' An album with the same title was also released that year, reaching number 15 on the Italian Album Charts. In 2008, Moro competed for the third time in the Sanremo Music Festival, this time in the Big Artists section. His song 'Eppure mi hai Cambiato la Vita' won third place in the competition and was the first single from his new album 'Domani' (2008). In 2009, Moro released the EP 'Barabba' and the following year Moro competed once again in the Sanremo Music Festival with the song 'Non è Una Canzone'. He failed to qualify for the final night but the song appeared on his 2010 album 'Ancora Barabba.' Moro returned to the festival in 2018, performing the song 'Non mi Avete Fatto Niente' with Ermal Meta. The duo won the Big Artists section of the competition and went on to represent Italy at the Eurovision song contest in 2018, placing third.
