Måneskin was officially founded in 2016, although some members of the group were already known during high school.

Their sound is characterized by a combination of the music influences: a mix of rock ’n’ roll, rap/hip hop, reggae, funky and pop, all held together by lead vocalist Damiano’s soulful voice.

They started their musical career as buskers by playing in the streets of Rome, until in 2017 they entered the 11th season of the Italian version of the talent show “X Factor”. As a result, the 2nd place and the first serious concert tour, in which, despite still a young age and little experience, presented themselves very convincingly.

A little before then, in March 2018 the single Morirò da Re (three-times platinum) was released, followed by Torna a Casa (five-times platinum). These tracks paved the way for the new LP album “Il Ballo Della Vita” entirely written by Måneskin, which was released on October 26, 2018. The record made its debut at #1 on the FIMI/Gfk chart with four singles earning a spot on the Top Ten and, less than two hours after its release, it peaked to #1 on iTunes, cracking, just a day after its release, theSpotify TOP 50 with all its songs and hitting 1 million streams in less than 24h.

In total, the band gave more than 70 sold-out concerts in 2019.
