Going to Gliwice: Meet Marta Viola from Italy

Posted

With her song ‘La Voce Della Terra', Marta Viola will represent Italy. This is 'Going to Gliwice', our feature counting down to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 on Sunday 24 November in Gliwice-Silesia, Poland.

Marta is very excited about performing on the Junior Eurovision stage: "It will be amazing to perform in front of so many people across the continent." Once she arrives in Poland, she is most excited about making new friends with other nationalities and the opportunity to grow as an artist.

Marta's song, La Voce Della Terra, was written by Emilio di Stefano and Fabrizio Palaferri and composed by Marco Iardella and Franco Fasano.

About Marta

Marta Viola is 10 years old and lives near Turin, Italy. She loves music, singing and dancing, passions she inherited from her parents. Marta will sing the song, 'La Voce Della Terra', a song about coming together to save the earth. "My song is about our planet, our shared home, whose voice can be found in every little and big thing around us. It is about the fragility of life and our duty to protect it."
