Arianna Del Giaccio, known professionally as Ariete, is an Italian singer-songwriter who gained initial recognition through her participation in the Italian talent show X Factor in 2019. After a series of independent releases, she signed a recording contract with Bomba Dischi, under which she released gold-certified debut EP, Spazio.
Ariete’s music career took off shortly after her stint on X Factor, with her first single “Quel bar” releasing in August 2019, followed by another single “01/12” in December of the same year. Producer Andrea Bomba noticed her talents and invited her to open for the Rock in Roma musical event. She then signed with Bomba Dischi and released her debut EP, Spazio, which was certified gold. Her second EP, 18 Anni, was also certified gold. Her work caught the attention of the mainstream audience when her single “Tatuaggi,” a collaboration with Italian music group Psicologi, went platinum. In 2022, Ariete released her first full-length album, Specchio, which debuted at number 4 on FIMI’s album chart and later earned a gold certification.
In 2021, Ariete lent her voice to songs by multiple artists including Alfa, Novelo, Tauro Boys, Bnkr44, and Rkomi. Particularly noteworthy is her platinum-earning collaboration with Rkomi on the song “Diecimilavoci.” Her collaboration with Algida for her double platinum single “L’ultima notte” also deserves a special mention, as it was used in a commercial for the brand.
Over the course of her career, Ariete has garnered a string of achievements. Her debut EP Spazio and her second EP, 18 Anni, both earned gold certifications. She’s enjoyed platinum success with singles such as “Tatuaggi” and “Diecimilavoci.” Her first studio album, Specchio, debuted at number 4 on FIMI’s album chart and has since been certified gold. Adding another feather to her cap, Ariete’s participation in the Sanremo Music Festival 2023 with her song “Mare di guai” was announced, marking another key moment in her career.
