Claudio Lolli (March 28, 1950[1] – August 17, 2018)[2] was an Italian singer-songwriter, poet, writer and secondary school teacher.

Biography[edit]

Lolli was introduced by Francesco Guccini to EMI Italiana, who produced his first LPs from 1972 to 1976. His albums are themed around political issues and ideas, for example, the album Un uomo in crisi follows the events of Antonio Gramsci's life.

Some of his better known songs are "Ho visto anche degli zingari felici", "Aspettando Godot", "Michel", "Quando la morte avrà", "Quanto amore", "Borghesia".

He started his career as a writer in the early 1980s and wrote five novels in twenty years. Lolli started writing his first novel, Antipatici antipodi, in 1972, and it was published in 1997.
