Thegiornalisti, currently the number one band in Italy, has encapsulated the summer vibe in their song “Riccione”. This song conquered the Italian airwaves over the months of July and August and was the number one played song catapulting it to the coveted top spot on the iTunes charts.

Riccione is about a summer spent in the town of the same name in the Province of Rimini and conjures up images of being free with not a worry in the world. Thegiornalisti have given birth to the new pop wave in Italy inspired by vintage soul. People love this style so much that their Album Completamente Sold Out that was released on the 21 October 2016 has reached Gold status.

The band was formed in 2009 and includes Tommaso Paradiso on lead vocals, Marco Primavera and Marco Antonio Musella.
