Antonio Diodato, born 30 August 1981, is an Italian singer/songwriter born in Aosta and has lived in Taranto and Rome. After making his first music in Stockholm, he came back to Italy where he has released 3 albums so far.
Diodato made his record debut in April 2013 with E forse sono pazzo (And maybe I’m crazy) which was met with critical acclaim. The following year, he participated in the 64th Edition of Sanremo Festival ‘Newcomers’ category with his song Babilonia, where he reached second place. In the same year, he also won the Italian 'Best Newcomer' award at the MTV Awards.
In 2016, Diodato signed a record deal with Carosello Records and released his next album Cosa siamo diventati. The album’s first single, Mi si scioglie la bocca, entered Spotify's VIRAL 50 less than 24 hours after its release.
The performer then participated again in Sanremo in 2018 with trumpet player Roy Paci and the song Adesso, reaching 8th place among the Big artists. The song received the praise of the judges and the public. Between this and his winning Sanremo return, Diodato made a cameo in the film Un’Avventura with Laura Chiatti and Michele Rondino, in which he reinterpreted a famous piece by Lucio Battisti.
Diodato returned to Sanremo for the third time in 2020, winning the contest with the song Fai Rumore. In addition, the song received the Mia Martini Critics Award, the Lucio Dalla Radio, TV and Web Press Room Award and the Lunezia Award for song lyrics.
Written and composed by Diodato, in collaboration with Edwyn Roberts, Fai Rumore quickly conquered the Italian streaming, download and radio charts. The song is released on his fourth album, Che vita meravigliosa.
