883 (read eight eight three) were an Italian musical group founded and initially composed of Max Pezzali and Mauro Repetto and later by Pezzali and other musicians.

With the first two albums, They killed Spider-Man and Northern southwest east, the 883 stood out in the Italian pop scene for the youth and original texts become a resounding manifesto and an icon of Italian ninety years.

Although they are mainly classified as a group of pop music, their music career has also gone through other genres such as dance, rock, and, especially in the album debut, hip hop.

The history of the 883 starts to Pavia in the eighties, when the two companions of the scientific high school "Copernicus" Max Pezzali and Mauro Repetto started writing songs. The first opportunity to show their artistic talent comes in 1989, participating in the transmission 1-2-3 Jovanotti, conducted by the then emerging Lorenzo Cherubini, aka Jovanotti. The two call themselves "The Pop" (from the word game "Hip-Hop") and have a repertoire of songs in English (one of these entitled Live in the Music) from rap sounds. The project appeared to have produced no result.

The artistic encounter with Claudio Cecchetto proves decisive, and work on new songs in Italian, changing the name of the group from "Pop" to "883", inspired by the smaller displacement motorcycle Sportster Harley-Davidson, of which they are big fans. Pezzali and Repetto participating in the Castrocaro Festival in 1991, with the part I do not beat around the: Pezzali is the singer, Repetto, co-author of the songs, the stage was limited to dance. It outlines the style that for many years became the "trademark" of the group: direct texts primarily to young, rich and slang catchphrases of the boys, telling ordinary and everyday situations in which it is easy to identify.
