Ale is the eighth studio album by Italian singer Alexia released in 2008.

The album was released in Italy on CD on 27 June 2008 and for digital download the next day. A version which included the song Biancaneve was released in Europe on 24 July 2009.

Contents

Two singles were released from the album; Grande Coraggio which had two videos filmed, one of which contained clips of Alexia in the studio recording the album and at the album photoshoot which was used to promote both album and single. Guardarti Dentro was the second single and as it was just a one track digital release which did not differ from the album, no separate download track was issued. Initially 'Estate' was planned to be the first single from the album. [2]
