Italian singer/songwriter Antonello Venditti is known for his passion for Rome, his native city, mentioned in many of his compositions.
Inspired by classical music, the singer made his debut in 1972 with an album recorded along with Francesco de Gregori on Theorius Campus, followed by 1973's L'Orso Bruno and Le Cose Della Vita. Venditti's breakthrough came in 1975 with the release of Lilly, getting its title track on the top of the most important local charts. The artist's composing skills were proven while working along with Lucio Dalla on the soundtrack for the movie Signore e Signori, Buonanotte. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
