On 6 October 1945, Ivan Graziani was born, “the rock guitar of Italian auteur music”, as he was nicknamed. Singer-songwriter impossible to classify and always far from the musical “fashions” of the moment, in his songs he told the Italian province with irony, while with his guitar he carried out experiments and virtuosity, the first in Italy to combine songwriting and rock. Born in Teramo, Graziani became passionate about art and music from an early age, starting to play the guitar as a self-taught. He wins various local competitions and then starts playing with groups: while still a minor he is enlisted by Nino Dale to play in his orchestra and also travels to Tunisia to perform in holiday villages.
