In our archives we found this conversation with Giancarlo Bigazzi, one of the most important lyricists and composers of Italian pop music of all time. It was recorded in February 1984, when his song "Gloria" by Umberto Tozzi was on the Hit Parade around the world, including Australia.

It is difficult to find an Italian who has not listened to at least one of the songs written or composed by Giancarlo Bigazzi.

We find his signature in the most famous and best-selling songs by Riccardo Del Turco, Caterina Caselli, Massimo Ranieri, Mario Tessuto, Gigliola Cinquetti, I Camaleonti, Ornella Vanoni, Gianni Nazzaro, Marcella, Loretta Goggi, Il Giardino dei Semplici, Gianni Bella, Mina, Adriano Celentano, Umberto Tozzi (with whom he achieved global fame), to name a few.

He also composed the music track for the 1992 Oscar winning movie Mediterraneo. 

Giancarlo Bigazzi was our guest on the program Authors and their songs which aired on February 13, 1984. He passed away exactly nine years ago, on 19 January 2012 in Camaiore, Italy.
