From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Alberto Fortis (Domodossola, 3 June 1955) is an Italian musician and songwriter.[1]

Fortis, who released his first album Alberto Fortis in 1979, is the composer of music and lyrics, and has directed the video clips of three of his songs.[1]

His discography includes recordings from official collections and live recordings with a dozen discs made in Italy and abroad (Los Angeles, New York and London).[1] Three of his albums have gone gold.

In the late eighties and early nineties Fortis wrote poetry which was published in two books, Tributo giapponese (1988) and Dentro il giardino (1994), both of which were edited by Giovanni Tranchida.[1][2]

Much in vogue in the eighties, Fortis has had a lull in his career, however, he returned to prominence in 2006 with the participation of the third edition of the reality show Music Farm hosted by Simona Ventura (a show similar to the Hit Me, Baby, One More Time format) on Rai Due.[3]
