Mini Bio (1)

In her native town, Genova, she attended the Foreign Languages High School. But as early as at the age of 15 she started winning Beauty Contests: first Miss Seaside, then Miss Liguria. In 1986 Sabrina starts her career as a show-girl, in the TV program "Premiatissima" with Johnny Dorelli. Later on she took part in the Channel 5 show "Grand Hotel": it was on that occasion that she met DJ and producer Claudio Cecchetto. The same year Cecchetto produces for her "Sexy Girl", Sabrina's first hit in the Italian and German charts. Between 1987 and 1988 the Artist takes part as a singer in the "Sandra & Raimondo TV Show": during the Summer her first album is released, with the simple title "Sabrina". With "BOYS" (recently remixed for the international markets) Sabrina tops all European, South-American and Australian charts. In Spain she is considered a true sex-symbol for her sunny and mediterranean beauty. In England she is produced by Stock Aitken and Waterman for the single "All of me". In 1990 next to Raffaella Carrà, Sabrina is back on TV in the show "Ricomincio da 2" on RAI 2 Channel. In 1991 Sabrina takes part in Sanremo Festival, in a duet with Jo Squillo with the song "Siamo Donne", later included in the album "Over the Pop" and, after a new successful international tour, she gets back to Channel 5 to compére the show "Bellezze sulla neve" ("Beauties on the snow"). A long period of work in a recording studio bring Sabrina to a radical artistic change. In Summer '94 a new artistic career is started: with a production team headed by Monti-Portaluri and Zafret, is released the mix "Rockaville" , which again gets a good success not only in Italy. The collaboration carries on with the mix "Angel Boy" which sees the participation of famous English rapper Neal A.D. In Summer '95 the single CD "Fatta e rifatta" is released, an ironic song that was much talked about by the press and media. In October '95 her first rock album, completely in Italian language, is released. The title is "Maschio dove sei" ("Male, where are you"), and is produced by Massimo Riva, with the collaboration of Vasco Rossi. Sabrina's sudden change to rock is well accepted, and the album gets released in several European countries.
