Are(A)zione is the fourth album of the Jazz fusion band Area, and it was their first live album. It was recorded during their 1975 tour in Milano, Napoli, Rimini and Reggio Emilia was released later the same year. While side One of the album concentrates on live versions of studio classics, side two contains the title-track, a lengthy instrumental, which contains also the drum pattern of the song "Giro, Giro, Tondo" which appeared in the next studio album Maledetti (Maudits), and a live version of "L'internazionale", the Socialist anthem, which was released in a studio version as a single in 1974. The track timings listed on the back cover are slightly incorrect, here is reported the actual running time for every track.
