Italian musician and singer-songwriter, famous for his satirical songs and oblique yet incisive political commentary. He is remembered for his rough voice, the biting irony of his songs and social protest hidden behind seemingly light lyrics. While he avoided taking any sides politically and refused to be labelled, his songs are full of astute political commentary. A much-loved national hero, he died in mysterious circumstances in a tragic and untimely car accident on 2 June 1981 at the age of thirty. His songs, however, are still widely sung and played, and he is still a hugely popular and influential figure.
