Italian ambassador of beauty and talent, to conquer the international scene of the show. The artistic portrait of Valeria Altobelli: singer, actress and presenter, famous among the audience of the small and big screen and in ascending fame also on the stages of Albanian television.
Valeria is originally from Sora, in the province of Frosinone. From a young age she is passionate about music and the performing arts and she dabbles between the piano and a career in theater. In 2004 she was elected Miss World Italy and she participates as a representative of the Bel Paese in the international final of the competition in China, in which she has the opportunity to duet with the soul star, Lionel Richie. It is her springboard that will take her to the stage all over the world. In Italy she goes to Rai and Mediaset, participating in the program as Tale e Quale Show.
A portentous singer, whose voice comes in multiple languages up to the nomination for the Oscars 2020 with the song “I’m standing with you”, written by the famous and award-winning author Diane Warren.
Valeria Altobelli took part in the 2021 edition of “Kenga Magjike ”, the largest music festival in the Balkans, broadcast on TV Klan. During her presentation Ardit Gjebrea, author and presenter of the event (the “Pippo Baudo” from the Balkans) recalled how committed she is also on a social level: Valeria is in fact the president of an association against violence against women. The female audience present in the theater embraced her with a standing ovation, in a truly moving atmosphere.
Valeria is praised by brilliant placements in the radio and record charts throughout Eastern Europe.The song with which she participates in the competition, entitled “Anima semplice”, saw her debut in prime time among the lights and scenes designed by Gaetano Castelli, a native set designer and friend of the artist, known for his Sanremo masterpieces. The looks were curated by Agnesa Vuthaj, formerly Miss Kosovo and Miss Albania, close to Valeria since the time of Miss World and her collaborator in the actions that her association has carried out in China, Philippines, United States, Kosovo and Italy.
For Valeria Altobelli, an important artistic path is confirmed that carries within itself the image of a new and passionate Italy.
