Edoardo Bennato

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.

On the occasion of the 1990 FIFA World Cup, which were held in Italy, Edoardo sang the official song of the event: "Un'estate italiana" ("An Italian Summer") together with Gianna Nannini. ==Discography=
