Dove si vola is the first studio Extended Play by Italian singer Marco Mengoni. The album peaked at number 9 in the Italian Albums Chart[1] and sold more than 70,000 copies in Italy,[2] receiving Platinum certification from the Federation of the Italian Music Industry.[3]

Background and release[edit]

In December 2009, Mengoni won the third series of the Italian talent show X-Factor. The 7-track EP was recorded during his experience at the singing contest, and it was released on 4 December 2009,[4] two days after he was announced winner of The X-Factor.[5][6]

Dove si vola includes the previously unreleased song with the same title, written by Bungaro and Saverio Grandi[7] and released as lead single. Mengoni sang it for the first time on 25 November 2009, during the semi-final live show of the talent show. The other tracks are "Lontanissimo da te", and 5 covers of popular Italian and international songs, chosen from the ones that his judge Morgan assigned him during the competition.[8]
