After some germinal formations the Opra Mediterranea project finds stability in the first months of 2010. They collaborate with the saxophonist Omar Daini and win the victory of the contest for emerging bands "Band in the night" held at The Alchemist club in Empoli.
The following year they are among the artists chosen to represent the territory of Empoli in the compilation of the Labella record company, recording their version of Lucio Battisti's "gardens of March".
Immediately afterwards they embark on a tour called "Cover show", where they reinterpret pieces of Italian music rearranged in a prog rock style.
The live project reaches its peak in 2012, when they hold a small series of concerts in Basilicata, appearing also on some press organs.
In 2015 they take part in national contests like "Suona Diverso" (Emilia Romagna) and "European social sound" (Umbria) reaching the final stages.
In 2016 they become part of the Campus Della Musica project in Florence.
In 2017, with the same project, the Yes We Campus vol. 1, a collection of 12 pieces by emerging artists from the national territory, edited and supervised by the professionals of the Music Campus and distributed by Universal Music.
In 2018 they won the award for best emerging band, awarded during the FIM in Milan.
On 13 September Isole was released, produced by Opra Mediterranea and Roberto Gasparini
