Palepoli is a progressive rock album released in 1973 by the Italian band Osanna, widely considered amongst the best in the Italian progressive rock genre.[2]

Palepolis was the name of the pre-Greek settlement of Naples, the city from which the band members originated. The album shows a wild mix of progressive and Neapolitan-Mediterranean influences. The lyrics, composed by vocalist Lino Vairetti, mix social themes with mythological and mystic ones.
