It seems that Italy's X Factor is quite successful at finding new talent. Our featured artist today, Sicilian singer-songwriter Giovanni Caccamo, was a participant on the fourth edition of the show.
"Ritornerò da te," his first single from his debut album Qui per te, was released in February and presented at Sanremo this year, where he won the Newcomer's category.
