Italian singer-songwriter, composer and producer.
Minghi started his career in the mid-1960s participating in a large number of musical contests, making his professional debut in 1966 with the single "Alla fine," with lyrics by Mogol.
The disappointing commercial results of the song and military service took him away from the music industry for several years. Following a new single in 1971, he released his first eponymous album in 1971, with the uncredited collaboration of Francesco De Gregori. Minghi started collaborating as a composer with several artists, such as Vianella and Ricchi e Poveri. In the mid-1970s he was briefly a member of the musical ensemble Pandemonium, with whom he recorded his song "L'immenso", which got several international covers and was his first real success. Leaving the group, he released a new album in 1980 (Minghi) and started working as a producer. In 1983 he debuted at the Sanremo Music Festival with the song "1950", with lyrics by poet Gaio Chiocchio, which was eliminated from the competition but resulted in critical success, becoming a classic of his musical repertoire. His subsequent albums earned him an increased following, particularly in 1990 thanks to "Vattene amore", a duet with Mietta, a singer he produced; the song ranked third at the Sanremo Music Festival and topped the Italian hit parade for several weeks.
Minghi has written songs for Andrea Bocelli, Mietta, Mia Martini, Anna Oxa, Marcella Bella, Gianni Morandi and Rossana Casale among others, and composed several musical scores for films and television series, notably Fantaghirò (aka Cave of the Golden Rose).
