In March 2007, Simone won the 57th edition of the Sanremo music festival. His song "Ti regalerò una rosa"[1] won due to extremely high marks received from the festival staff (96/100) and popular vote. The lyrics to the song are taken from papers he found that were written by a man who was in a mental hospital for most of his life. It is a sad tale of the man's struggle with being away from the woman he loves and being exiled for being mentally ill. The song has so far reached number 3 on the official Italian charts and number 1 one the official downloads chart going to become Christicchi's most successful song to date in the country.
