Da non perdere:
Andrea Bocelli, now 65 years old, was born in La Sterza, a fraction of Lajatico, in the province of Pisa, on September 22, 1958. His parents were farmers involved in the marketing of agricultural equipment. He was born visually impaired due to glaucoma and lost his sight completely at the age of 12, as he himself has recounted, due to a ball hitting his head during a soccer game. At the boarding school, he learned Braille and after finishing high school, he enrolled and obtained a law degree. However, his true passion was singing and music in general. He became a student of the tenor Franco Corelli and thanks to him, he started performing in various piano bars.
His career began in 1992 quite by chance when he was tasked with developing a song for Pavarotti during an audition. It was the Emilian talent who made the young Andrea sing, and shortly after, he signed his first record contract with Sugar. In 1994, he participated and won the Sanremo Music Festival in the “Nuove Proposte” category, gradually becoming more and more famous and appreciated both as a tenor and a pop singer. One of his most famous and iconic songs is “Con te partirò,” which received double platinum certification at the time. He quickly became famous overseas as well and was honored with a star on the famous Walk of Fame, making him one of the few Italian personalities to receive this recognition.
In 2011, he founded the Andrea Bocelli Foundation, a non-profit organization created to address poverty and inequality through intervention programs. The foundation aims to provide support and opportunities for those in need.
Andrea Bocelli has been married twice. His first wife was Enrica Cenzarotti, with whom he has two sons, Amos and Matteo, born in 1995 and 1997, respectively. He later separated from Enrica and married Veronica Berti. In 2012, Veronica gave birth to their daughter, Virginia. The couple tied the knot in 2014.
In addition to his successful music career, Andrea Bocelli is known for his philanthropy and humanitarian efforts. Through his foundation, he has been able to make a positive impact on the lives of many people, particularly those facing poverty and inequality. His dedication to helping others is admirable and has earned him respect and admiration from fans all over the world.
Overall, Andrea Bocelli’s journey from a visually impaired child to a world-renowned tenor and philanthropist is truly inspiring. His talent, determination, and passion for music have propelled him to great heights in his career, and his commitment to making a difference in the world through his foundation is commendable. As he celebrates 30 years in the music industry, it is evident that Andrea Bocelli’s legacy will continue to inspire generations to come.
