Rapper Zoda returns after three years with a new album entitled ‘Self-Portrait’ out today – Friday, July 8 – in all record stores and digital stores: 13 unreleased self-produced songs, which are predicted by the singles’ Inferno ‘and’ Pezzi Da 10 ‘. Zoda is also the author of the book ‘Life is not an adventure’ (Mondadori), which has just been published: a short autobiography, a self-portrait, a stream of thoughts, is an introspective journey where the author finally reveals himself for what he is. Daniele Sodano, alias Zoda, was born in 1996 in Trentino (Cavalese) and then lived the rest of her growth in the province of Latina. Depopulated online after only 14 years, conquered millions of people, became one of the leading exponents of video production on Youtube, realized various audiovisual projects, including a series on MTV and starred in the movie “Game Therapy” as the main character. At the age of 18, he stopped making videos to devote himself to writing poems, which later became songs, with which he manages to get his torments forth and those from the boys his age, creating a movement and motto called “YOLOWN” in the name of freedom, a battle cry to resist the adversity of life, whatever they may be, and subsequently become a clothing brand and therefore a brand in all respects. So he starts recording and releasing his first songs, which are already very mature. His first completely self-produced singles and music videos arrive, including “APORIA”, “EGO” and “NO / WAY”, but it is with “BALLA” that the world really notices him, a song released in September 2018 at a distance of almost 3 years of absence, where Daniele would take some time for himself during a rather dark period and then write what would become the pages of the new chapter of his life. He quickly reached the top of the charts of stores, Spotify and Youtube, and the first gold records arrived and released an EP “UFO”, his first project released in 2019. (red)


Simona Marchini has signed a contract with “Corpo estraneo” for Baldini + Castoldi. a life outside the box of a woman full of talent and imagination, always lived with courage, at the height of emotion and creativity: “Strange Body” is not “just” a biography, but an intense and enchanted monologue, recited for the reader as a kind of new and crucial play. With a passionate and disturbing narrative that is not afraid to meet serious and profound reflections, Simona Marchini – a beloved actress, as well as director, theater woman and opera lover – reveals her whole world and her historical family, by becoming naked in intense pages , characterized by an ironic and bittersweet style. Hers is a complex personality that she herself outlines for the reader by composing a portrait, sincere and authentic, with words that reveal the nostalgia for the past but above all the enthusiasm and desire to live the future as the main character. In the book, there is the story of all phases of the artist’s life, both from a private and professional point of view: first and foremost childhood, lived under the sign of the resistance movement in a communist and eccentric family; the early fascination with the world of entertainment and art, which she experienced from an early age, also by going to the Nuova Pesa Gallery, which her father opened in 1959, and which she will take care of herself; the great love stories, such as the marriage of Ciccio Cordova, the then captain of Roma, at the time when her father, Alvaro Marchini, was president of the club; the intense experience of motherhood, pain and loss; and then of course the landing in theater and television: The debut took place in 1979 with Romolo Siena in “A tutto gag” with the character of Iside Martufoni and then with Renzo Arbore in “Quelli della notte”, in 1985, for which he invented ” My Lady, se … “.
