Lucio Dalla

Lucio Dalla, born March 4, 1943, was one of the most innovative and versatile authors of the Italian musical landscape.  His death of a heart attack in Montreux (Switzerland), March 1, 2012, a few days after his 69th birthday, has shocked at least three generations who grew up with his songs always ironic and at the same time full of profound poetry and humanity.
