Incanto is the twelfth studio album by Classical Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, released on 4 November 2008 and coinciding with his 50th birthday. The album, a personal tribute to the musical traditions of his homeland, features mainly Neapolitan love songs from Bocelli's childhood.

The two disc set also contains Incanto: The Documentary, a bonus DVD containing exclusive documentary footage, including an interview with Bocelli filmed in Naples, alongside a music video showcasing the Italian city in the 1950s. The video features rare clips of notable figures enjoying the romance of Naples in its heyday such as Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Sophia Loren, John F. Kennedy, among others.

On 21 February 2009, on the Italian talk-show, Che tempo che fa, Bocelli received a four times Diamond disc for Incanto, for selling in excess of 1.5 million copies within 4 months of its release.[1] The album was also nominated for "album of the year" at the 2009 Classical BRIT Awards.

In Japan the album was released on 21 January 2009 as Santa Lucia: Miwaku no Italian Songs (サンタ・ルチア~魅惑のイタリアン・ソングス, Santa Ruchia: Meiwaku no Itarian Songusu, Santa Lucia: Fascinating Italian Songs) and featured two bonus tracks.[2]
