Life and career[edit]

Born Adelmo Buonocore in Naples, he debuted at 20 years old with an auto-produced single "Sferisterio".[1] Put under contract by RCA, he released several albums with a style close to British new wave and synthpop music of the time.[1][2] The turning point of his career was his participation in the 1987 Sanremo Music Festival with the song "Rossana", which was his first real commercial success and marked a transition towards a more melodic and sophisticated style.[1][2][3] His biggest hit was the 1990 romantic ballad "Scrivimi", a song which was covered in twelve languages and which sond about 4 millions copies.[1]
