Maurizio Arcieri (Milan, 30 April 1945) formerly leader of The New Dada, a 60s Italian Beat Music band, and current member of Krisma, was a successful singer in the 70s.

He is married with Christina Moser.

Career[edit]

1967
In the spring The New Dada support The Beatles in their Milan concert. The group eventually split. Some members of The New Dada follow Maurizio as supporting group.
"Ballerina" and "Il comizio" are released.

1968/1970
Maurizio participates at the "Disco per l'Estate" Festival with "Cinque Minuti e poi..."; the song is one of the greatest hits of the year and the leit-motiv of "Quelli belli siamo noi" ("We Are the Beautiful Ones"), a "musicarello" (musical comedy movie) in which Maurizio acts and sings some of his hits.
The movie features - among others - Carlo Dapporto, Carlo delle Piane, Isabella Biagini, Ric e Gian and a young Loredana Bertè.
Maurizio is invited as a guest in the most important TV shows of the time. Some videos of those appearances are now available.
The album "Maurizio - 1970" is released.

1971/1975
The albums "Maurizio - 1975" (a collection of Maurizio's cool seventies singles), and "Trasparenze" (a progressive experiment) are released.

Maurizio is then chosen as the Italian narrator for the pan-European album Peter and the Wolf, a Polydor project that involves Brian Eno, Phil Collins, Alvin Lee, Manfred Mann and many others.
