Collage is an album by the Italian progressive rock band Le Orme. It was released in 1971. It is the first progressive-like album by the band, who had previously recorded only the beat-oriented Ad Gloriam of 1968.


The album begins with the instrumental "Collage", then continues with the sad song "Era inverno" ("It Was Winter"), a conversation between a man and a harlot. The third song, "Cemento armato" ("Reinforced Concrete"), is introduced by piano and describes the situation in the cities. "Sguardo verso il cielo" ("Glance Toward the Sky") was released as a single in 1971. "Evasione totale" is very near to experimental rock, as "Immagini" is near to psychedelic rock. "Morte di un fiore" ("Death of a Flower") concludes the album.
