Adriano Celentano is a world-renowned artist, who has millions of fans all over the world. They love the celebrity’s concerts, the tickets to which are often sold out. Meanwhile, there is one more artist, who looks exactly like the legend. He is Adolfo Sebastiani, the greatest impersonator of Celentano alive. He looks almost exactly like him, just a bit younger.
Adolfo doesn’t just look like Adriano or move like him. He also has an excellent voice. When Sebastiani sings, it nearly impossible to tell his and Celentano’s vocals apart. Only the most dedicated fans or people close to Adriano can figure out which one of the two artists is singing.
Before Adolfo Sebastiani became famous, he worked in one of the Italian banks. People on the streets often confused him with Adriano and asked for an autograph or a photo. With time, Adolfo’s artistic talent, musical skills, and love for singing helped the artist make a decision about a career change. Sebastiani quickly turned into a celebrity.
In 2002, he formed a project called Adolfo e la Band. Besides Adolfo, the lineup included several other musicians. In just a couple of months, the band became successful and earned popularity in Italy and beyond.
In the beginning, Adolfo’s act wasn’t as polished as he wanted it to be. He had to work on the image of Celentano, the songs he chose to sing, and the celebrity’s manners and body language. Sebastiani strived hard to copy the legend and perfected even the smallest details. With time, Adolfo was becoming closer and closer to Adriano. Eventually, he even managed to copy Celentano’s temper, which was the Italian singer’s calling card.
Adolfo Sebastiani worked on the tone of his voice, his habits, body language, and much more. It took him long months to become an ideal copy of the legendary singer and actor. Adolfo and his team rehearsed every day and gave regular concerts to hone their skills. Soon they became true experts at what they did. Today, it’s hard to tell Adolfo and Adriano apart, especially when the former is performing on the stage.

Between 2003 and 2007, the artists gave numerous concerts and sharpened their skills even further.
Not too many fans know that back in 2002 Sebastiani met Celentano for the first time. The famous singer offered the impersonator a job. Adolfo had certain responsibilities, which had to do with interacting with the fans and media to help the artist rest and relax.
