Once again two almost completely different bands with the same name, Florence band I Califfi included in their first line-up the future Area and Electric Frankenstein guitarist Tofani and Campo di Marte drummer Marcovecchio and were a very popular band in the 60's, before disbanding at the turn of the 70's. They released an album on RiFi and no less than eleven singles.
The band was reformed in 1972 by bass player Franco Boldrini, the only member from the original line-up, for a new recording deal with Fonit Cetra, that only produced an LP.
Fiore di metallo is a good prog album, based on organ and moog sounds, even if the lyrics are a bit naive and too close to the typical italian beat themes. Some interesting keyboard passages, as in the instrumental Varius or the opening track Nel mio passato, make this album well worth listening.
