DUE VITE (Epic Records Italy / Sony Music Italy) is the song with which Marco Mengoni won the 73rd edition of the Sanremo Festival, 10 years after his winning song L'essenziale.
Due vite is about relationships, focusing on the most intimate relationship, the one with yourself, which is built thanks to several experiences that we go through during our life. An invitation to face life honestly - without regrets and without thinking about who we should be - in order to accept mistakes as moments of growth. This song describes the need to face life while enjoying every moment of it, because each instant is part of our existence.
The song, written by Mengoni himself with Davide Petrella and Davide Simonetta, is a ballad with a non-classical structure, both from the instrumental point of view, and from the development and vocal arrangement, and it is also edited by Marco himself; the production of the song is by E.D.D. and Simonetta.
In a unique scenery of the majestic and deserted dunes of Piscinas at dusk, the video was born from an idea of Marco Mengoni and Roberto Ortu, the director of all the music videos that accompanied the Materia project. The "Due vite" video - created thanks to the autonomous region of Sardinia and the Sardinia Film Commission Foundation - reflects the solitary wandering of the songwriter on the sand surrounded by atmospheres that refer to the cinema of the 80s and the imagination of David Lynch.
