Biography

Maria Iside Fiore was born in Carrara in 2004 and lives in Sarzana, Liguria, where she attends the musical section of the local junior high school. She plays clarinet and sings in the school choir.

When Maria Iside was four, she started dancing in the Danzabilmente group, which promotes the integration of disabilities through the dance. She is still an active member of the ensemble. In 2015 she started singing solo thanks to her teacher and the following year she took part in several talent shows and contests at a local and national level.

In 2016 she was a finalist of the junior section in the national contest Cantagiro. She also sang a cover of Anna Tatangelo’s Libera as part of a CD project raising awareness of violence against women. In 2017 she participated again in Cantagiro, qualifying for the Semi-Final and debuted as an actress in a production with the Marilontani theatre company. The song that Maria Iside Fiore will sing in Tbilisi is Scelgo (My Choice). It depicts a young girl’s dilemma about her future. Her choice is made: she will not bend to the fear of the unknown and the different: she will be open and freely express herself and her feelings.

Lyrics:

Italian

Scelgo di non aver paura

Di andare oltre, oltre queste mura

Scelgo di dare ali e vento

Ad ogni mio respiro ad ogni mio momento

 

Scelgo di non aver timori

Di non temere confini e colori

Scelgo di lanciare il mio sorriso

Oltre lo steccato fra terra e paradiso

 

Io vivo, io canto,

io sogno, io danzo

Io penso, io creo

in questa vita sì io ci spero.

 

Scelgo di non aver paura

Di prendere il mio cuore e di averne cura

Scelgo di crescere il coraggio

Passo dopo passo viaggio dopo viaggio

 

Scelgo di non aver timori

Di vivere ascoltando e di guardare fuori

Scelgo di lasciare il suolo,

prendere il respiro e librarmi in volo

 

Io vivo, io canto,

io rido, io piango

Io penso, io creo

in questa vita sì io ci spero

 

From what I choose today,

I will build my life

I keep my fears away and

I will open up my eyes

 

Amare è la risposta,

amare a dismisura

Perchè l’amore sempre

caccerà via la paura

 

I’m living, I’m singing,

I’m dreaming, I’m dancing,

I’m thinking, I’m caring

and I believe in life, I won’t be afraid.

I’m living, (Io vivo)

I’m singing, (Io canto)

I’m dreaming,(Io sogno)

I’m dancing,(io danzo)

 

Io penso, io creo

in questa vita sì io ci spero

Scelgo di dare ali e vento

Ad ogni mio respiro ad ogni mio momento

 

I will fly above the highest wall

To make a better day

I choose not to be afraid

English

I choose not to be afraid

to go beyond, beyond these walls

I choose to give wings and wind

To every breath, to every moment of mine

 

I choose not to be afraid

Not to fear borders and colours

I choose to throw my own smile

Beyond the fence between Heaven and Earth

 

I am living , I am singing ,

I am dreaming , I am dancing

I am thinking , I am caring ,

I have hopes in this life

 

I choose not to be afraid

To pick my heart and take care of it

I choose to grow the courage

Step by step , journey after journey

 

I choose not to be afraid

To live listening and to look outside,

I choose to leave the ground,

take a deep breath and fly high.

 

I am living , I am singing ,

I am dreaming , I am dancing

I am thinking , I am creating ,

I have hopes in this life

 

From what I choose today, I will build my life

 

I keep my fears away and I will open up my eyes

Love is the answer, love as much you can,

Because love will always kick the fear away

 

I’m living, I’m singing,

I’m dreaming, I’m dancing,

I’m thinking, I’m caring

and I believe in life, I won’t be afraid.

 

I’m living, (I live)

I’m dreaming, (I dream)

I’m dancing, (I dance)

 

I’m thinking, I’m creating

I have hopes in this in life

I choose to give wings and wind

To every breath, to every moment of mine

I will fly above the highest wall

To make a better day

I choose not to be afraid.
