Pier Francesco Renga, known as Francesco Renga (Udine, June 12, 1968), is an Italian singer-songwriter.

Born in Udine father of Sardinian origin  and the mother of Sicilian origin and raised in Brescia, enter the contest between Brescia band called "Deskomusic". Renga has only sixteen but already a great stage presence; his group is called Modus Vivendi, founded just a year before with some friends. At the same competition also he joined a group destined to mark the biography of Renga, the then unknown Precious Time, become later Timoria. Among the young Lombard band and singer he was born budding artistic understanding that allows Francis to join the training. The following year, not only the band won the second edition of the competition, but changed the name to Fear, will be the environment in which Renga will have the opportunity to develop their artistic talents for the next thirteen years.

The band released the first official album Colors exploding, in 1990, in which already stands out the Renga vocal talent. Much loved by young people, Fear trend and are now in a short span of time are to tread the boards of various countries across Europe, also launched by the participation among the young of the Sanremo Festival 1991, which won the Critics Award (set up for the occasion) with the song the man who laughs, and which will then be included in their second album, Rhythm and pain. Follow stories for a living in 1992, when the group of sound moves towards more hard rock sound, and Journey without wind, a concept album considered the masterpiece of the group and one of the most important Italian rock records of all time.

In the same period, there's also the first major commercial success, thanks to the gold disc obtained from their next job, in 2020 SpeedBall, who manages to sell more than 40,000 copies in 1995. In 1997, shortly after the release of Eta Beta, begin to be born of internal disagreements between Renga and guitarist Omar Pedrini, which follows the separation of the singer from the group. Renga therefore salutes, towards the end of 1998, with the collection Fear Timeless (Ten Years), in which it appears for the last time as the voice of the group in some unpublished.

Towards the second half of 1999, after the abandonment of the singer Pelý by Litfiba, Renga (his outgoing time from Fear) is considered by many as his possible replacement in the group. To appease the increasingly insistent rumors thinks the same Renga, stating in an interview that he had never had any kind of contact in this regard and that "after divorce from Fear of everything I want except be part of a group" .In the same interview also reveals plans to enter the studio on June 21 next year (at the Hollywood garage Arezzo) to begin recording his solo debut, for which he has already written all the material. Finally begins his solo career.

Its comeback takes place as a soloist in 2000 with the release of the album of the same name Francesco Renga. An album that, to hear the words of the Renga, not yet revealed fully the potential of Brescia songwriter. The disc was produced by Fabrizio Barbacci already manufacturer of Negrita and album Heart of Gianna Nannini, while different music are composed in collaboration with guitarist Max Cottafavi, former ClanDestino and thus alongside Ligabue in his first three albums, and later starred in the tour ElleSette 2007.

Renga is imposed solo a year later following the participation in the Sanremo Festival in 2001 among the young with Tell me song written by Umberto Iervolino and produced and arranged by the latter, which earned him the Critics Prize. Tracks, the final breakthrough album, released in 2002 simultaneously with its first participation in Sanremo as a big, with traces of you. Then after two years off public Renga in 2004 his third album of unreleased Rooms with a view and it includes some individuals who have had some success. There they will be published in February 2004 and included in the compilation of Festivalbar 2004 Wonderful (the moon) published in October of that year.
