Ferdinando "Fred" Buscaglione
Birth: Nov. 23, 1921
Turin
Provincia di Torino
Piemonte, Italy
Death: Feb. 3, 1960
Rome
Provincia di Roma
Lazio, Italy

Singer. Born in Turin, Italy, he developed a strong passion for music since his childhood. In his teens he could usually be found playing violin and double bass in the city's clubs. After World War II he joined the Allied Radio Orchestra in Cagliari, Sardinia, where he started playing American-style music such as swing. By the end of the war he had created his own singing persona, styled like a "Clark Gable moustached "girls 'n whisky" damned club singer". In the 1950s, coupled with Leo Chiosso, he produced his most famous and remember songs, such as "Che bambola", "Teresa non sparare", "Eri piccola cosė", "Guarda che luna" and "Whisky facile". By the end of that decade he had become one of the most famous business personalities, appearing on television shows and advertisements, as well as in ten movies. He tragically died in a car accident in Rome as his Ford Thunderbird crashed into a truck. His grave is still often visited by fans, who leave as tributes cigarettes and whisky bottles. (bio by: Luca Cottone)
