Madame: transparent and sensitive “Voce” of Gen Z

Little big woman with a splendid soul

By Alessandra Nava

Francesca Calearo, born under the sign of Capricorn in 2002, was born to make music and this 2021 represents a well-deserved consecration for her.

She came out as a pop-sensation with Sciccherie”, the 2018 single that revealed to the general public her hoarse and deep and touching voice, together with her original and intimate writing. She has continued to ring in prestigious successes and collaborations, from Marracash to Negramaro, from Elodie to Rkomi.

At the age of 19, Madame blossomed as an all-round artist thanks to Sanremo, the most popular and mist important Italian music festival. Her “Voce”, a song with an intimate côté and sweet and unsettling words, is a hymn of selflove, a caress that invites self-acceptance.

Despite the covers, like Rolling Stones Italia's, entirely dedicated to Sanremo, and who wanted Madame as a cover girl portrayed among the flowers of the Ligurian Riviera by Gabriele Micalizzi, or the designer outfits, Francesca still feels very young, very fragile, but also very aware and decisive.

In an interview with Noisey Italia she opens up for almost twenty minutes about her life, about the bullying she suffered during the school years, about the role of a cathartic storyteller she has sewn on her alter ego Madame and about her fluid sexuality.

Madame is the fresh and transparent face of Gen Z, young people who have a strong self-awareness, a delicate sensitivity, the desire to break down stereotypes and build a more fluid and non-judgmental reality.

Her messages also pass through fashion, ça va sans dire. The Dior looks she showed off on the Sanremo stage are an elaborate narrative by chapters of his personality and multifaceted gender identity. An androgynous Madame in a suit and tie, a Madame dressed in a sparkling suit that resembles armor, but decorated with a pattern that recalls the breasts and the womb, and finally a married and barefoot Madame, who reunites with herself in the final evening.
