Signora Bovary is an album of Italian singer-songwriter Francesco Guccini. It was released in 1987 by EMI.

The album[edit]

"Signora Bovary" is a poetic variation of Gustave Flaubert's novel Madame Bovary. "Culodritto" is dedicated to Guccini's daughter, Teresa, who was 9 at the time. "Van Loon" is about Guccini's father, who was a reader of the books of the 1930s science writer Hendrik Willem van Loon. The long suite "Keaton" was co-written by Claudio Lolli, who had found difficulties in releasing it: as Guccini liked it, he published in his new album after minor modification. The last stanzas deals with the American actor Buster Keaton.
