Santi Francesi win X-Factor

Piedmont duo victorious in contest that launched Maneskin

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 9 - Piedmont rock duo Santi Francesi won the 16th edition of the Italian X-Factor musical talent show on Thursday night.
    The act, who forged their name from their surnames - Alessandro De Santis and Mario Francese - beat out competition from the other three finalists, Palermo's Beatrice Quinta, Alba-born Linda Riverditi, and Milanese rock foursome Tropea.
    "We're just happy," said De Santis and Francese, who won a 300,000 euro recording deal with Sony Records, said "we're quite simply happy".
    Roman rockers Maneskin came second in the 11th edition of the competition in 2017 before finding global fame after winning the Sanremo Song Festival and Eurovision. (ANSA).
