Classic Italian Songs
From one of the most colorful lands, comes the music that talks of life, love, and more. Here's a list of the most famous music that comes from Italy, a place that celebrates it.
Italian music is truly unique, from a global standpoint. Historically speaking, Italy was one of the biggest centers of classical music from the 16th century. Ever since the days of Ottorino Respighi, Alfredo Casella, and Luciano Berio, the Italians have held pride in their national musical heritage. They managed to freely preserve the most vital components that defined any music as Italian, yet were experimental in nature, minimally combining musical elements from around Europe. One such artist was Ferruccio Busoni.

Italy is the land of love known for its rich cultural heritage and food. Italian songs have always been famous for their ethnicity and style. Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli, and Claudio Villa are some of the globally popular Italian singers. Italian opera and classical music have always been popular among music lovers.

The list of some of the greatest Italian performers includes names such as Louie Prima, Dean Martin, Connie Francis, and Mario Lanza. They've all enchanted us with their voices and their compositions throughout the ages, ensuring that Italy always plays a lead role in world music.
