Diodato

Diodato made his musical debut in 2013 with the song 'E Forse Sono Pazzo' on Le Narcisse Records/Goodfellas. The following year, he took part in the 64th Sanremo Festival in the Newcomer category with the song 'Babilonia', where he came in second place.


Diodato signed with Carosello Records in 2016 and, in January 2017, he released the album Cosa Siamo Diventati, followed by a tour. That same year, he participated in #EveryChildisMyChild - Live for Syria, a project in Vulci organized Italian artists to support the construction of a school in Syria.

The single Cretino Che Sei marked a stylistic turning point in Diodato's career. In December 2017 he won the Critic's Choice at the 68th Sanremo Festival with Roy Paci and the song Adesso. He was again back on the Ariston stage as a guest of Ghemon in 2019 performing Rose Viola with the Calibro 35. He then inaugurated a new phase of his musical career with the songs Il Mercante, Non Ti Amo Più and Che Vita Meravigliosa, which became the soundtrack to Ferzan Ozpetek's new movie La Dea Fortuna.

Diodato won the 70th Sanremo Festival with the song Fai Rumore, a song that has now topped the Italian charts. On Monday 24 February, the Mayor and the Council of Taranto conferred the Civic Merit award to Diodato for paying homage to his city with his Eurovision entry.

Lyrics of Fai Rumore

Sai che cosa penso?
Che non dovrei pensare
Che se poi penso sono un animale
E se ti penso tu sei un'anima
Ma forse è questo temporale
Che mi porta da te
E lo so, non dovrei farmi trovare
Senza un ombrello anche se
Ho capito che
Per quanto io fugga
Torno sempre a te

Che fai rumore qui
E non lo so se mi fa bene
Se il tuo rumore mi conviene
Ma fai rumore, sì
Che non lo posso sopportare
Questo silenzio innaturale
Tra me e te

E me ne vado in giro senza parlare
Senza un posto a cui arrivare
Consumo le mie scarpe
E forse le mie scarpe
Sanno bene dove andare
(Che mi ritrovo negli stessi posti)
(Proprio quei posti che dovevo evitare)
(E faccio finta di non ricordare)
(E faccio finta di dimenticare)
Ma capisco che
Per quanto io fugga
Torno sempre a te

Che fai rumore qui
E non lo so se mi fa bene
Se il tuo rumore mi conviene
Ma fai rumore, sì
Che non lo posso sopportare
Questo silenzio innaturale tra me e te

Ma fai rumore, sì
Che non lo posso sopportare
Questo silenzio innaturale
E non ne voglio fare a meno oramai
Di quel bellissimo rumore che fai
Do you know what I think?
That I shouldn’t think
‘Cause when I think, I’m an animal
And If I think of you, you’re a soul
But maybe is this storm
which brings me to you
And I know, I shouldn’t be around
Without a shield even if
but I got that
As much as I run away
I always come back to you

‘Cause you make noise here
And I don’t know if it does me good
If your noise suits me
But you make noise, yeah
And I cannot bear it
This unnatural silence
Between me and you

And I wander around without talking
Without a place to reach
I wear out my shoes
And maybe my shoes
Know well where to go
(‘Cause I find myself in the same places)
(Those places I had to avoid)
(And I pretend not to remember)
(And I pretend to forget)
But I got that
As much as I run away
I always come back to you

‘Cause you make noise here
And I don’t know if it does me good
If your noise suits me
But you make noise, yeah
And I cannot bear it
This unnatural silence
Between me and you

But you make noise, yeah
That I cannot bear it
This unnatural silence
And I don’t wanna do without it anymore
That beautiful noise that you make
