Fiaba formed in 1991 in Siracusa (Sicily) by Bruno Rubino who is the band's drummer and author of the music and lyrics
Fabia describes themselves as follows:
"It is impossible to define the sound of FIABA: their music is unique. Even if they sing in Italian, they are far from every other Italian musical phenomenon.
Their music, cutting and expressive, uses celtic-medieval sounds, geeting close to folk-mediterranean melodies. It supports well the intense and meaningful lyrics. Through metaphors and allegories, the fairytale (this is the meaning of the word Fiaba!) becomes the background to display reflections about never otu of fashion topics, while the music itself creates a fairytale-like feeling."
