Italian Song Challenge Day 6: Marco Mengoni

Marco Megnoni’s mesmerising falsetto voice exploded onto the Italian pop scene in 2009 after he won the third edition of X Factor Italy.

Since then he has sold over 2,8 million albums.

He has participated twice in the Italian San Remo song contest, winning the competition on his second turn in 2013 with his song L’essenziale.


His music is marked by constant experimentation and ranges from beautiful love songs, ballads, catchy pop to incredibly infectious dance.


Voglio (I want) is a youthful expression of what a young lover wants, part party anthem part love song.

It is yet another piece of the Italian ‘tormentone’ genre.


Songs that you will hear everywhere and that will immediately stick in your head for days and will be forever sung out loud at karaoke or played by local DJ’s.
