Edoardo Bennato (July 23, 1946) is an Italian singer-songwriter.
He was born in Naples and his early songs gave a clear picture of his town and its troubles. Among his best songs there are some regarding life in Naples and his own values. He says that, even if Naples is a poor town, nothing works, it is worth living there. His songs helped a whole generation in growing with new values and dreams.
Starting from 1980s, Bennato shifted to a more commercial and rock-influenced inspiration.
