Song of the week

For someone who didn't watch it I seem to be writing an awful lot about Sanremo this year. My favourite song this week is the one that won Sanremo Giovani. There's a category in the festival for giovani - or young - singers. I knew who some of them were, such as Andrea Nardinocchi and Il Cile, but others were unknown names to me. This year's winner was 26 year old Antonio Maggio, who first found success thanks to 2008's edition of X Factor where he was part of Aram Quartet, a band he and his friends put together. In 2010 the band split, and this year Andrea entered Sanremo in the Giovani category. His winning song was Mi servirebbe sapere.
