Marco Masini (born September 18, 1964 in Florence), is an Italian singer-songwriter and musician.
Marco Masini was born in the city of Florence, in the region of Tuscany, on September 18, 1964. His mother, Anna Maria, sang and played piano, and was an elementary school teacher before she quit the profession to have a life at home with the family. His father, Giancarlo, worked as a representative of hair products.
When Marco was three years old he received a toy piano as a Christmas present. The little boy showed an instant interest in music and soon he began attending music classes.
During high school he created, along with friends, a music group called Errata Corrige. Meanwhile, his lack of interest in studying made him leave high school when he was 16, which caused problems within his family.
For a time, Masini worked with his father as a representative. In 1980 the family opened a bar in Florence. Sadly, the fights between Marco and his father increased, causing his mother worry and heartache. A few years later, her husband was forced to sell the bar after she was found to have cancer. Marco left to serve in the army (military aircraft in Florence), and only one day after his return on August 22, 1984, his mother died, to the deep sadness of Marco, who always regretted the fact that he could not be close to her in her last moments.
