Bufalo Bill is an album of Italian singer-songwriter Francesco De Gregori. It was released in 1976 by RCA Italia. The title is an intentional misspelling of Buffalo Bill's name: buffalo is often rendered in Italian as "bufalo", although specifically defining a different animal in that language.
The cover is a portrait by American artist Gil Elvgren, from a 1948 magazine.
The album include some of the most popular De Gregori songs, including the title track (a ballad about a disillusioned Buffalo Bill and about contradictions of the American myth, partially inspired by the Sam Peckinpah film The Ballad of Cable Hogue), the romantic "Atlantide" and the desperate anthem "Santa Lucia".
