Music and Lyrics: Italy in the Eyes of its Pop Singers

Daniele De Feo

Back to "Spring 2019" courses

Working at the crossroads of American influences and the tradition of political songs, Italian cantautori merge popular appeal and literary sophistication. For at least three generations, their songs have provided an engaged soundtrack to Italy’s turbulent social, political and cultural transformations in the post-WWII years. As lyrics on the page, as music to be listened to, and as performances recorded in video, Italian canzoni d’autore are part of Italian history and identity today.
