Fabrizio Dentice (also Fabricio, Fabritio) (Naples c. 1539 – Naples c. 1581) was an Italian composer and virtuoso lute and viol player.[1]

Fabrizio was the son of Luigi Dentice (c. 1510–1566) who served the powerful Sanseverino family and had a great reputation as a singer and lutenist.[2] Fabrizio was also uncle to the harpsichordist Scipione Dentice (1560-1635).
