Bengala is the mirror of Lorenzo Fragola today, who took care of every single aspect of the album. A fully accepted "challenge" that led him to make important choices such as, for the first time, the general coordination of the entire project (from the writing of each piece to the choice of every sound aspect, up to the finalization of the work, even as a producer).

Among the collaborations present in Bengala, there are those with Mecna & MACE and with Gazzelle in SuperMartina, single from summer 2018.
