AbstractThe Italian emerging bands chase success on the footprint of popular artists by playing rhythmic danceable and happy songs. Our finding comes out from a deep study of the Italian music scene and how the new generation ofmusicians relate with the tradition of their country. By analyzing Spotify data we investigated the peculiarity of regional mu- sic and we placed emerging bands within the musical movements defined by already successful artists. The approach proposed and the results ob- tained are a first attempt to outline some rules suggesting how to reach the success in the musical Italian scene.
