Zero Assoluto is an Italian pop / R&B duo comprising Thomas De Gasperi (b. Rome, June 24, 1977) and Matteo Maffucci (b. Rome, May 28, 1978). They met each other when they were teenagers and became best friends.

History

Their first single, "Ultimo capodanno" was released in 1999. "Scendi", containing "Mezz'ora" and "Minimalismi", followed in 2004.

During the summer of 2005 they entered the Italian Top 40 chart with "Semplicemente", which reached the number two. The success of this song allowed them to participate at the Sanremo Music Festival where the group performed "Svegliarsi la mattina" in the "Band" category - the single eventually reached the top spot on the Italian Top 40 chart. Additional hit success followed with the song "Sei parte di me", which also reached number 1.

Matteo Maffucci also works as a DJ for the national radio network RTL 102.5. Together with band mate De Gasperi he hosts "Suite 102.5" and has hosted RTL 102.5 Television 3° piano-internoB.

Also to Maffucci's credit are the books "Ore a Caso" and "Ultimo Stadio" and his third book, "Spielberg ti odio" on the market from 10 January 2007. As well as collaborations with the magazines Tutto, Rockstar and GQ.

In 2006 Zero Assoluto was featured on a version of the Nelly Furtado song "All Good Things (Come to an End)" released on the Italian version of the album "Loose".

The band again entered the Sanremo Festival in 2007, where they placed ninth with "Appena prima di partire". Nelly Furtado performed at the event as a guest star. Their second album "Appena prima di partire" was released during the festival and reached platinum status on April 15.

On May 7 the international version of "Appena prima di partire", featuring Nelly Furtado, was released in all italian radio stations. Their last single, "Meglio così", was released on May 25.

During the summer of 2007 they performed their "Zero Assoluto Live" with more than forty concerts all around Italy.

From October 15, 2007, Zero Assoluto have been presenting "Vale tutto", the first quiz-show on MTV Italia.

On October 16 they released their DVD "Zero Assoluto Extra", including all their videoclips (excepting "Come voglio" and "Ultimo capodanno"), backstage, films not used in the videoclips, lives from their tours, interviews, pictures and the "Appena prima di partire" video featuring Nelly Furtado.

Three songs from "Appena prima di partire", including "Quello che mi davi tu", have been put in the soundtrack of "Scusa ma ti chiamo amore", from the homonymous book by Federico Moccia. In the film there is a scene made during their 2007 live tour.
