About: Marzia Gaggioli
Marzia Gaggioli is an Italian composer and singer-songwriter. She was born in Rome on the 8th of March 1985. Her love for music started when she was a child. At the age of six years, she already played the piano by ear and composed her own songs, but she didn't study music formally.

When she was 14, she became a "SIAE" member (Italian Copyright Society for Composers/Authors) after passing music exams and getting qualifications as a "music composer" and "lyrics author."

She loves composing different kinds of music:

Classical Music:
Sonatas, symphonies, concertos, minuets and rondos, nocturnes and serenades, marches, waltzes, and Sacred Music. Music plays in her head just like a CD, and all that she can do is run to the piano and try to reproduce the music and sounds she heard in her mind.

Modern Music:
She composes, arranges, plays, and sings her songs in more than 20 different languages and different styles: pop, rock, rap, hip-hop, dance music, jazz, and more.
She also composes movie soundtracks and folk music.

Musical Works:
Until now, she has composed more than 1300 pieces of music (between songs and classical) and recorded more than 40 albums.

Played Instruments:
Piano and keyboards, drum kit, violin, saxophone, and guitar.

Performances and Competitions:
In 2003, she took part in the "Castrocaro Competition" (one of the most popular competitions for singer-songwriters in her country) and made it through the semi-finals. She also took part in "minor music competitions" and during the same period, she performed as a singer and drummer in many nightclubs and discos in her city. She performed live and was a guest on many national and local TV transmissions, and her music is played on many radios and televisions all over the world. In 2009, she started working on the web, editing/producing her own music video clips.
In 2012, one of her songs written in Polish, "Jestem Tutaj," got more than 2.5 million views and became a big hit in Poland, reaching the top positions in the national music chart for several weeks, beating the singer Psy with his song "Gangnam Style."
In the same year, her song "Oggi Il Sole Non C'è" became the theme song of the TV show Italia Coast2coast on RaiDue.
In 2015, according to the plebiscite conducted by the Polish magazine Gazeta Wrocławska, she was the most anticipated star of the concert that should have been held at the municipal stadium in Wrocław. She received many votes, beating stars like Madonna, Beyoncé, Doda, and One Direction.
In January 2017, she took part in the selections for the Eurovision Song Contest to represent Poland with the song "Nie Poddam Się," but she couldn't go through the competition due to citizenship issues.

Marzia also has other passions: she loves drawing (comics with stories and characters created by her) and painting, shooting and editing videos, creating clothes and costumes, writing poems, and fantasy adventure stories.
