Melissa & Marco will represent Italy at the 2018 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Minsk with the song 'What Is Love'.
Melissa Di Pasca is 10 years old and lives in Alassio with her parents and younger brother. She is in her final year of primary school and is also part of a musical company called 'Riviera Musical', where she started taking classes when she was only 6 years old.
She loves to sing and dance, and has started taking piano lessons as well. But those aren’t her only hobbies: she also loves to read! Amongst her favorite books are Diary Of A Wimpy Kid and Geronimo Stilton.
Marco Boni was born in Avezzano in 2004 and is currently attending the first scientific high school. He started dancing at the age of 4, but discovered his love for singing at the age of 8.
More than just creative, he is driven as well: he would also like to become a dermatologist in the future. In 2015, Marco participated in an Italian television show called Ti Lascio Una Canzone and in 2017, he won a competition by broadcaster Rai, called Prodigi.
