Melissa & Ranya will represent Italy at Junior Eurovision in Nice
Broadcaster Rai’s adventure at Junior Eurovision is about to kick off once again, as their participants Melissa and Ranya reveal their song 'Un Mondo Giusto' (English translation: 'A Fair World').

Un Mondo Giusto was written by Marco Iardella and Franco Fasano, who is also the artistic director of the track. The song, published by Edizioni Fucsia, Insani Logoritmi, and Universal Music Italy, marks the beginning of Rai Kids' collaboration with Virgin Music LAS/Universal Music Italy, which oversaw the production. 

Melissa Agliottone is 13 years old, born in Civitanova Marche (Macerata), and raised in Sant'Elpidio a Mare. She fell in love with music at the age of 8, initially learning to play the piano and subsequently developing a passion for singing. 

Melissa also plays the drums and has recently started writing the lyrics for her songs, and her ambitions don’t stop there: ‘In the future, I hope to perform on the Eurovision Song Contest stage,’ says the winner of Italy’s The Voice Kids (2023)

Ranya Moufidi is also 13 years old, and she resides in Ciserano (Bergamo). Born in Italy to Moroccan parents, Ranya is proficient in five languages (Italian, Spanish, French, Arabic, and English). 

She has nurtured her love for singing and acting from a very young age and hopes to pursue a career in the world of music in the future. She, too, surprised the The Voice Kids audience with her innate talent, vivacity, and carefree spirit. 

Last year Italy sent Chanel Dilecta with the song Bla Bla Bla.
