Italian singer-songwriter and composer, born blind.
Baldi began playing the guitar as an autodidact while he was at the Reggio Emilia College for the Blind. He debuted in 1986, entering the Sanremo Music Festival with "La nave va", a song he composed and arranged, ranking second in the "Newcomers" section. He later won the Newcomers section of the Festival in 1992, in a duet with Francesca Alotta, with the song "Non amarmi", which later became an international hit with the title "No Me Ames". In 1994 Baldi won again the Sanremo Festival, this time in its "Big Artists" section, with the song "Passerà"; the song was covered by the group Il Divo in their debut album. In 1994, Baldi also released an autobiographical book, Il sole dentro, written in collaboration with Marcello Lazzerini. Outside of his musical career, Baldi is also a massophysiotherapist.
