Gaetano "Nino" d'Angelo (born June 21, 1957) is an Italian singer. He was born in San Pietro a Patierno, a suburb of Naples. Nino had a very difficult childhood, and to help his family's poor financial condition he left the school and started working at a very young age.
Thanks to Alberto Lupo he was able to enter the good world but only after enormous sacrifices: his first album, "A Storia Mia" (Neapolitan for "My Story") was published using personal and family funds. The album was a hit almost immediately, especially in Sicily where he quickly became one of the most acclaimed singers. He married at an early age: in 1979 he married Annamaria with whom he would have two sons: Antonio and Vincenzo. He also started acting in "sceneggiate" (a typical Neapolitan theatrical form), becoming a very popular representative of the genre. After a while he also started a cinematographic career, with his first movie "Celebrità".
