Gianfranco ReverberiBorn: 1934, Genoa (Italy)
In 1972, Nicola Di Bari won the Sanremo Festival with ‘I giorni dell’arcobaleno’, a highly original song written by Di Bari himself in collaboration with co-composer and arranger Piero Pintucci and lyricist Dalmazio Masini. Pintucci conducted the Sanremo orchestra during the winning performance. Subsequently, Di Bari represented Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest in Edinburgh with the same song, which was slightly rearranged and conducted by Gianfranco Reverberi, who, at that time, was Di Bari’s producer. With ‘I giorni di arcobaleno’, Italy finished sixth among eighteen competing countries.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Gianfranco Reverberi will be published on this website
