Lucio Battisti (5 March 1943 – 9 September 1998) was an Italian singer and composer. He is considered to be one of the best-known and most
influential musicians and authors in Italian pop/rock music history. Battisti started his career in 1966 and from 1969 to 1994 he released 18
albums in his home country. A significant part of his production was translated into Spanish (various albums) and English (one album). He was
renowned to be an extremely reserved artist: during his successful career he performed only a small number of live concerts, and in the early
1980s he announced he would limit himself to his studio albums, completely disappearing from the Italian public scene.
