Two Italian Eurovision representatives, Marco Mengoni (2013) and Francesca Michielin (2016), will join forces and collaborate together on a yet to be revealed project. Francesca says she has been working with Marco for almost a year now. “In August 2015 I started working with Marco Mengoni. We are building a nice project together, it would certainly be great if it will be known abroad. Good things need time, step by step, now my first thought is for the Eurovision”, she said.
The two artists have both won the talent show X Factor and are signed up with the record label Sony Music Italy. Furthermore, the two have the same manager. At the moment, it is unknown whether they will record a song or an album together. Francesca says Marco’s performance at Eurovision was her favourite of all time.
