8 Curiosities About Måneskin That (perhaps) You Did Not Know

What does the name of the band mean? How did they meet? The guys from Måneskin have conquered, not only Europe, but the whole world with their music.

  On May 22, they were proclaimed champions of the Eurovision Song Contest at the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, and immediately their performance went down in the history of this event. And it is that the band led by Damiano David managed to conquer a continent with a rock and metal style in Zitti e buoni .

The name of Måneskin and its members are occupying the front pages of all the media. But although they have now come to light, the truth is that they have a history of years that has allowed them to develop that energy and ease on stage.

In LOS40 we have compiled some of the interesting facts and curiosities that you should know to fully immerse yourself in the Måneskin universe. Of course, once you enter, you do not leave. Attentive!

What does Måneskin mean?

The name is translated into Danish, and it means "moonlight". The truth is that Victoria, the bassist of the group, has Danish ancestry. She was one of the creators of the group.

 

How was Måneskin born?

We go back to 2015. Previously, Victoria De Angelis and Thomas Raggi, the guitarist, met in high school. They discovered their passion for music and in August 2015 they decided to give life to this group. According to Ticketone, Damiano David was subsequently joined and, after posting an ad on Facebook, they signed Ethan Torchio, who is in charge of drums.

When were its members born?

Damiano David is the oldest of the group. He was born in Rome on January 8, 1999. This is followed by Victoria de Angelis, also born in Rome, but on April 28, 2000. Year in which Ethan Torchio also came to the world. It was in the Italian capital on October 8. The youngest is Thomas Raggi, who was born in Rome on January 18, 2001.

His past on television

The San Remo Festival, which is in charge of electing the Italian representative for Eurovision, has not been the only television program that our protagonists have passed through. They also did it in 2017 when they participated in The X Factor (Italy). Their success was already beginning to conquer their country, as they were in second position and were sponsored by Manuel Agnelli.

His first big hit

His great musical success came precisely during his participation in this talent show. It was the Chosen EP , which includes his covers of songs like Beggin ' the The Four Seasons, Let's Get It Started by the Black Eyed Peas, Somebody Told Me by The Killers  You Need Me, I Don't Need You by Ed Sheeran. The EP received the double Latin record certificate.

They were opening act for ...

... Imagine Dragons! That's how it is. It all happened on September 6, 2018 when the American band set foot in Milan during their fall tour.

His latest album

His most recent project is entitled Teatro d'ira - Vol. I , which was released on March 19, 2021. It is made up of a total of eight songs in English and Italian. In his native country he has reached the first position. Måneskin is a phenomenon!

 

Your peculiar (and individual) curiosities

They confessed it to the AGI medium. Damiano's is to get a star on the Walk of Fame. For her part, Victoria wants to "make a living from this profession." Something that catches Thomas' attention is that he previously worked at the Hard Rock Café (his passion for guitars perhaps explains this). Ethan, for his part, considers himself a "fifty-year-old" in terms of his relationship with new technologies.

And you, have you already been conquered by Måneskin?
