La Bottega Dell Arte


In the mid-70's, two brothers and three long-time buddies got together and released some fine symphonic prog albums in the purest Italian melodic tradition.

In the mid-70's, two brothers and three long-time buddies got together and released some fine symphonic prog albums in the purest Italian melodic tradition. The band consisted of brothers Piero Calabrese on keyboards and vocals and Massimo Calabrese on bass, acoustic guitar and vocals; they were joined by friends Fernando Ciucci on lead vocals and guitars, Romano Musumarra on guitars, flute, keyboards and vocals, and Alberto Bartoli on drums and vocals. Their albums are characterized by luscious memorable melodies, impressive vocal harmonies and plenty of swirling keyboards that give their material a rich, full-bodied symphonic sound. Their first two albums, "La Bottega Dell'arte" (1975) and especially the 1977 "Dentro" (considered the most progressive of the lot), were quite well received both at home and in many parts of the world, from Scandinavian countries to South America, Korea and Japan. Their third release, "L'Avventura" (1979), however, signalled a bit of a let-down and by their fourth, "Forza 4" (1984), their hearts simply weren't in it as they had lost the services of their all-time lead singer Fernando Ciucci and were all slowly going their separate ways.

Perhaps for old times' sake, they did finish the album but it not as homogenous and somehow lacks the warmth and cohesiveness of the other three. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
