3. VELVET Undergraund

the late '60s and early 70s, while in GB were already 'famous Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath in the U.S. and the MC5, and Velvet Undergraund Grand Funk R., in Italy were the most popular Claudio Villa, Rita Pavone and Orietta Berti ( sic!).

proto metal songs do not even passed on the radio. However, many of our musicians felt the need to step outside the canons of "Italian-style melody."
complex is formed very transgressive, but famous' for the cover of American and British bands: ex. Nomads; Equipe 84, Ravens; New Dada, etc. ..

is created, however, a genuine Italian progressive rock genre, very much appreciated also abroad (Sweden, Japan, Holland, Germany) by some groups such as ballet BRONZE, Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM), the tracks and the downside.

I would point out the latter group, the flip side, formed by three talented jazz musicians Romans, who in 1971 had an extraordinary success in northern Europe with the single "Sodom and Gomorrah."
Go to listen to the song on YOU TUBE. It 'an instrumental piece at all dated, which could be repeated today with success.
