History of Disco Music

On December 1, 2019, the book La storia della Disco Music, by Andrea Angeli Bufalini and Giovanni Savastano, Hoepli editions, was presented at the XXVI edition of Music Day, Rome record fair.

The volume explores the evolution of this hugely successful musical genre from its R&B, soul and funk origins to today’s dance and techno derivations. One of the chapters is dedicated to the italo-disco, the birth and development of which are traced by the words of some of its prominent figures. Producers Paolo Micioni, Pietro Micioni and Claudio Casalini, composer Claudio Simonetti and singer Ryan Paris joined the authors during the meeting, which was moderated by Angelo Martini.
