Zero Assoluto is an Italian pop rock duo comprising Thomas de Gasperi and Matteo Maffucci. They met each other when they were teenagers and became BFFs. They released their début song, "Ultimo capodanno " back in 1999. During the summer of 2005, they entered the Italian Top 40 chart with "Semplicemente ", which reached #2. The success of this song allowed them to participate in the 56th Sanremo Music Festival. They also worked together on Italian national radio network RTL 102.5 and Matteo is also an author (five books so far). Dudes are back this week in Sanremo for the third time with their new single, "Di me e di te " ('About me and about you') written in collaboration with Antonio Filippelli and Luca Vicini, dealing with the need for dialogue in a relationship. "Ci siamo persi in una strada tra follia e vita " meaning 'We got lost on the road between madness and life'. After "L'amore comune " (here), the first taste of their upcoming sixth album due out in March, this second love song comes with an accompanying video handsomely directed by Gaetano Morbioli in a fabulous baroque castle near Verona called Villa Arvedi.
