Antonello Venditti (born 8 March 1949) is an Italian singer-songwriter who became famous in the 1970s for the social themes of his songs.
Antonello Venditti was born in Rome, the son of Vincenzino Italo from Campolieto Molise, deputy-prefect in Rome.
He studied piano in his youth and made his debut in the music world in the early 1970s at the Folkstudio of Rome, together with singers like Francesco De Gregori and Giorgio Lo Cascio. In duo with the former he released in 1972 his first LP, Theorius Campus. The LP scored little success, but Venditti at least made himself noted for the strength of his vocal qualities and for his attention to social issues, evidenced by pieces like Sora Rosa which is sung in Roman dialect. Also in dialect was Roma Capoccia, a declaration of love for his city, which later became one of his most famous songs. Curiously, Venditti refused to sing it for several years, as he considered it not politically or socially "engaged" enough.

    Madredeus

    The flight distance between Basel and Lisbon is 1672 kilometres, but the distance between the Basel drums and Portuguese fado could be measured in light years. Fado, the music of lower Lisbon, is based on a feeling that the German language cannot even name. Since 1986, Madredeus have spearheaded the long tradition of fado and a woman’s voice was always at the centre, now it is the voice of Beatrix Nunes. The mastermind of the band, guitarist Pedro Ayres

    Magalhães, helps to ensure the future of fado with his compositions, which are not museum pieces, but rather a reflection of the realities of Lisbon in 2012. They perform some classic works as well as new songs at AVO SESSION.
