Francesco Gabbani won the 2016 Youth Edition of the Festival di Sanremo

Francesco Gabbani has won the 2016 edition of Youth at the Festival Di Sanremo , with the song "Amen". Born in Carrara in 1982, after the win, he stated: "As a child I approached the world of music  thanks to my father who was a musician and owner of a music store. When I was almost 14, I wrote the first songs and had my band, Trikobalto, through which I did the first two albums. This song is special to me because, behind the dancing rhythm and melody, there is the idea of stimulating a reflection regarding the way we live today, always waiting for the next miracle to happen."
