Niccolò Fabi

The Idea

“I think everything springs from curiosity. Observing reality is of course a good starting point to tell a story. Then, you have to be good at conveying it, making others get it, sharing it.”

With his words and his music, Niccolò Fabi paints reality. He shares his human and artistic experiences and, as a result, creates a sense of solidarity in his listeners. He is a poet who writes in an elegant, natural and polished style as he walks through the corners of life. He is also a man who took up the challenge of the African continent and put his own ego to the test, rethinking the importance of our origins.


Niccolò Fabi took his first steps on Rome’s music scene in the early Nineties. In 1997, his song ‘Capelli’ won the Critics’ Award as a Young Talent at the Sanremo Festival. He launched his debut album, ‘Il giardiniere’ in the same year. Also at the Sanremo Festival, in 1998, he sang ‘Lasciarsi un giorno a Roma’, which he would then include in his second album, ‘Niccolò Fabi’. In 2000, his third album ‘Sereno ad Ovest’, supported by the single ‘Se fossi Marco’, opened the way to a collection of his most famous songs, sung in Spanish. ‘La cura del tempo’ in 2003, contained such songs as ‘È non è’, where he took a distance from pop melodies. 2006 was the year of ‘Novo Mesto’ which he recorded in the Slovenian city of the same name. Ten years after his debut, he launched his first collection ‘Dischi volanti 1996-2006’. In 2007, he filmed the documentary ‘Live in Sudan’ about his trip and charity concert in the African country. In the same year, Niccolò began ‘Violenza 124’, a project with other artists, such as the band Mokadelic, with whom he composed the soundtrack to Gabriele Salvatores’ film ‘Come dio comanda.’ This was followed by a new record ‘Solo un uomo’ in 2009. Also in 2009, in cooperation with the NGO Medici con l’Africa CUAMM, he filmed the documentary ‘Parole che fanno bene’, about their health projects in Uganda, which was shown in the universities of the cities he visited during his ‘Solo un uomo’ tour. On 30th August 2010, at Casale sul Treja, near Mazzano Romano, he organized ‘Parole di Lulù’, a birthday party for his daughter Olivia, who died of an acute form of meningitis. The day was originally planned as a small event but turned into a big concert, with over fifty musicians and twenty thousand people.

Niccolò held a twelve-hour concert and fundraising campaign for the NGO CUAMM, to build a paediatric ward in Chiulo, Angola. In November 2010, he published a single ‘Parole parole’ sung with Mina, the proceeds from which went to the Chiulo hospital. April, May and June 2011 were the months of his SoloTour, a new experience that brought Niccolò into Italy’s theatres on a one-man show. He spent 2012 composing “ECCO”, the seventh album in his career, as a follow-up to the single “Una buona idea”.In March 2013, following the political elections, he and his colleagues joined the "Restart the Future" project by signing a petition aimed at revising the anti-corruption law by amending the rule on political-mafia electoral exchange within the first hundred days of parliamentary life. Since February 2016 he has been teaching in the Song section of the Officina delle Arti Pier Paolo Pasolini, a higher education project of the Lazio Region in song, theatre and multimedia. On March 27, 2017, "Una somma di piccolo cose” became a certified gold disc. Still today his musical production remains of the highest level and in 2019 his eleventh album ‘Tradizione e Tradimento’ was released.
