Franco Marino has Neapolitan origins but he has always lived in Rome.
During his career he collaborated with great artists such as Mauro Malavasi, Andrea Bocelli, Lucio Dalla, Tony Esposito.
He began his artistic career as a singer in the group of Tony Esposito, participating in many tours in Italy and abroad (1990-1997), also related to important TV events: Rai Cantagiro, May 1th Rai Concert, 30th Television Directing Rai Award, Columbus Games, World Cup USA 1994.
His artistic career as author of lyrics and music begins with the latter two media events by writing the theme songs for two important Rai TV broadcasts related to them.
He writes several songs in the album "Tropic" by Tony Esposito (1997), in which collaborated also Gino Paoli and Joe Amoruso; collaborates in writing a lyric in the album "Hello" by Lucio Dalla (1999); writes a song for Andrea Bocelli in collaboration with Mauro Malavasi - titled "Domani" -, published first in the album "Andrea" (2004 ©Sugar Srl, Almud, Double Marpet - UK version) and in the two single cd versions "Dell'Amore Non Si Sa" and "Un nuovo giorno" (2004 ©Sugar Srl, Almud, Double Marpet - distributed worldwide), then on "Vivere Live in Tuscany", compilation of the great tenor (2008 ©Sugar Srl, Almud, Double Marpet - distributed worldwide).
The song by Andrea Bocelli was also sung by Petra Berger in the album "Here and Now" (2006).
With Mauro Malavasi and Leo Z he takes part in the project for Karine Carusi, Canadian soprano, by writing the lyrics of the song "L'Assenza" in the album "Bolero" (2006).
"L'Assenza" was also sung by tenor Alessandro Rinella with Celtic Woman in a video recently released on Youtube.
Today he still collaborates with Mauro Malavasi and has a vast repertoire of works of different genres, from pop-soul to the pop-classical project in Neapolitan language - titled "Il Pescatore Di Stelle" - which is inspired by the famous tradition of Neapolitan songs but has a strongly modern pop-soul vein in singing the passion of love and the stirrings of the soul. ?

E ce perdimmo ieri

L amore e senza tempo
