Born on October 28, 1963 in Cinecittà, Rome, Eros spends his childhood occasionally appearing in the mass scenes of some films and dreaming of a bright career as a singer, encouraged by his father Rodolfo who is a building painter but has also recorded some songs. After middle school, Ramazzotti asked to enter the Conservatory, but was rejected in the admission exam, so he enrolled in accounting. The school experience is short: he only has music in mind and is already retiring in the second year.
In 1981 he took part in the Voci Nuove di Castrocaro competition: he reached the final with "Rock 80", a song written by himself that allowed him to get his first recording contract with the young DDD label. Eros moves to Milan and lives right in the headquarters of the record company. In 1982 he released his first single entitled "To a friend", but he is still an immature talent, so he was joined by an expert musician: Renato Brioschi.
After only a year of work, success suddenly arrives: Eros triumphs among the "young proposals" of the 1984 Sanremo Festival with "Promised Land", written together with Renato Brioschi and Alberto Salerno (author of the text).
"Terra promessa" is published all over Europe, because his record companies have been working since the first record considering Ramazzotti an international artist: all his records will also be translated into Spanish. In 1985 Eros Ramazzotti returned to the Sanremo Festival and finished in sixth place with "An important story", a song contained in the debut album "Agitated Hearts". The single "An important story" sells a million copies in France alone and becomes a European hit.
In 1986 he released his second album entitled "New heroes" but above all he won the victory at the Sanremo Festival (third consecutive participation) with the song "now you". Third album in three years: in 1987 the cd "In Certain Moments" was released which contains the duet with Patsy Kensit in the song "The good light of the stars". Eros is the protagonist of a nine-month long tour with a boundless audience: over one million spectators. The cd "In Certain Moments" achieves exceptional results: over 3 million copies sold worldwide. The number of his fans grows further with the following mini-album "Musica è".
He is still one of the most loved Italian singers thanks to his numerous successes and his sublime talent: he will be on tour next year with the Battito Infinito World Tour which will see him perform in Italy and around the world.
