To call it unknowable is to say very little. The photo that we propose refers to the 17 years di Marco, when the great artist weighed 95 kilos. “I let off steam with music and food” he said in an interview.
The artist recalled those years of excess that made him unrecognizable compared to his current species. It’s really difficult to recognize the characteristics of the winner of the Sanremo Festival 2023. A story that obviously has its roots in Complaints and ailments in adolescence. Luckily, Marco Mengoni has resurfaced and today he joins the elite of Italian music.
