Blanco (Blanco): Biography of the artist

Blanco is an Italian singer, rap artist, and lyricist. Blanco loves to shock the audience with daring antics. In 2022 he and the singer Alessandro Mahmoud will represent Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest. By the way, the artists are doubly lucky, because this year the musical event will be held in Turin, Italy.


Childhood and youth of Riccardo Fabbriconi

The artist's date of birth is February 10, 2003. He was born in the Italian commune of Calvagese della Riviera, located in the province of Brescia in Lombardy.

Riccardo Fabbriconi (the real name of the rap artist) in one of his interviews said that he “exactly” refers to the place where he spent his childhood.

The biggest disadvantage of the commune, in his opinion, was the constraint of people. According to the artist, to express his opinion in Calvagese della Riviera was something transcendental.

In the Fabbriconi house, music was respected and loved. The works of Lucio Battisti, Lucio Dalla and Pino Daniele were often heard in their house. Even Riccardo with the head of the family loved to listen to pop songs that were played on the radio. As he grew older, the young man opted for the youth genre. Rap - "settled" in his heart.

As it happens with almost every second rap artist, Riccardo was driven to “great art” by emotional experiences. He composed the first track for his girlfriend. Soon he forgot about the object of his adoration, but he could no longer leave the music.

It should be noted that in addition to music, Riccardo went in for sports. He was on several football teams. By the way, he played football at a professional level.

Fabbriconi achieved good results in a team sport, so when he announced to the coach about his decision to “quit” football and go into music, he could not believe it.
