Dolcenera is Sicilian, born in '77, his real name is Emanuela, he resumed his nickname from a popular song by De André 'Dolcenera', which immediately gave her a great popularity.
Dolcenera is smart, she's a good singer, pianist, a good, friendly, has a great desire to do, and adapts well to any situation in which the show is, despite this we do not think she is a great singer, unfortunately for her, in Italy there are singers and song writers far more valuable to her, or, at least, to us like the most.
And 'one of the participants of the Festival of Sanremo 2012
Ps: Dolcenera borns in Galatina, Puglia, not in Sicily, sorry...
