A touch of Italy in X-Factor Israel Maurizio Scaglioni, born 32 years ago in Casalmaggiore (Cremona, Italy), has gained the chance to participate in the final of X-Factor Israel thanks to a passionate interpretation of Purple Rain, piece of the famous Prince. Street musician Scaglioni left Casalmaggiore when he was 20 armed with a guitar and the desire to bring his music to the streets of the Old Continent. In Brussels he fell in love with Liri, an Israeli girl who gave birth to their first son some months later and for whom he moved to Israel. His first appearance, four months ago, convinced the strict judges of the format. Shiri Maimon, Ivri Lider, Rami Fortis and Moshe Peretz appreciated the soul-blues voice of the singer that performed Cat Stevens’ “Wild World”, the song that opened him the doors of the talent show. Even though he has already become a big name, to the point of being stopped in the street by fans, he said that he doesn’t want to get a big head: “I don’t want to to sell myself short to the music industry - he said- this is a great opportunity to make my music known and really demonstrate what I'm worth''.
Tonight he will fight to get a place in the team of Shiri Maimon (over 25) who seems to have a musical interest for Maurizio's way to sing since his first performance
