Invited to the 2016 Books & Music Festival

Colapesce, whose real name is Lorenzo Urciullo, was born in Syracuse (Sicily) in 1983 and started playing music before he could even speak. At the age of 15, he understood that music would be his life. From then on, the typical teenager of the 90's spending his time between tricked out scooters and afternoons at the café is over. He collaborated with several bands before creating Albanopower with whom he produced the album Maria's Day, sung in English. At the same time, he begins to write songs in Italian under the pseudonym of Colapesce. A 1st EP omonym is released in 2010, then an album - Un meraviglioso declino - in 2012 which, in a very short time becomes a classic of the new Italian song.

In February 2015 his new album Egomostro was released. The daily newspaper Le Monde dedicated a dithyrambic article to him, calling Colapesce "the future of Italy, the only heir of Lucio Dalla and Franco Battiato", icons of Italian song of the finest tradition.


He will be present:

Sat April 16 / 12pm - Villa le Cercle - Italy in Deauville Program
Inauguration & Concert by Colapesce
Followed by a cocktail open to all!
The 13th edition starts at the Villa Le Cercle, the new headquarters of the Festival. The readers of the media library will designate their favorite literary 2016 just before the concert of the young Italian "pop" singer Colapesce. Literary, brilliant, he seduces Italy. Le Monde says he is "the future of Italy", nothing less!
