About the song Non mi avete fatto niente
Ermal Meta and Fabrizio Moro won the Sanremo music festival 2018 with the song Non mi avete fatto niente (You did nothing to me) and thus they were offered the chance to fly the nation’s flag in Lisbon. The songwriters are both the artists themselves, as well as Andrea Febo.
The song’s lyrics broach the sensitive social issue of the terrorist attacks that have taken place in Europe in recent years, whilst it was penned on the occasion of the attacks in Manchester last May, during Ariana Grande‘s concert.
