Alberto Fortis (2007)

Biography

Italian musician and songwriter, who released his first album "Alberto Fortis" in 1979. The composer of both music and lyrics, he has also directed the video clips of three of his songs.

His first album includes a famous song "Milano e Vincenzo". In Italy it's well known as "Vincenzo, io t'ammazzerò" ("Vincent, I'm going to kill you"), from the first words in the song, where Fortis is angry with Vincenzo Micocci, his first producer.

His discography includes recordings from official collections and live recordings with a dozen discs made in Italy and abroad (Los Angeles, New York and London).

In the late eighties and early nineties Fortis wrote poetry which was published in two books, Tributo giapponese (1988) and Dentro il giardino (1994), both edited by Giovanni Tranchida.

Much in vogue in the eighties, Fortis has recently experienced a lull in his career; however, he returned to prominence in 2006 with his participation in the third edition of the reality show Music Farm, hosted by Simona Ventura (a show similar to the Hit Me, Baby, One More Time format) on Rai Due.
