The discography of Zucchero Fornaciari, an Italian rock blues singer-songwriter, consists of eleven studio albums, one soundtrack album, seven compilation albums, two live albums and more than sixty singles. In 1993, Zucchero Fornaciari has also released a studio album with the band Adelmo e i suoi Sorapis, also including Equipe 84's Maurizio Vandelli and Pooh's Dodi Battaglia.[1]

Zucchero's first two studio albums didn't reach commercial success and failed to chart in Italy, while 1986's Rispetto entered the Top 10 in his homecountry, where it sold more than 250,000 copies.[2] Its follow-up, titled Blue's, became the best-selling album in Italy of 1987,[3] while 1989's Oro incenso e birra was certified eight-times platinum in Italy.[4]

In 1991, Zucchero released his self-titled compilation, featuring the English-language version of some of his biggest hits, including the single "Senza una donna (Without a Woman)", a duet with Paul Young which charted in the Top 5 in the United Kingdom and reached the top spot in Norway and Sweden.

The album Spirito DiVino, released in 1995, has sold more than 2,500,000 copies worldwide[5] and was certified Platinum by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry for European sales exceeding 1,000,000 units.

As of 2011, Zucchero has released 8 Italian number-one studio albums, including his last effort Chocabeck, and 3 Italian number-one compilation albums, including 1998's The Best of Zucchero Sugar Fornaciari's Greatest Hits, which was certified triple platinum in Europe, and 2004's Zu & Co., which also topped the charts in Austria, Wallonia and Switzerland.
