    ProgressiveRock :
    English Progressive acts were a huge hit in Italy by the early 70’s, so it was only a matter of time before the Italian groups steered their beat tradition to more Progressive pastures and produced their own unique twist on the genre. At the forefront of this were the unlikely named Premiata Forneria Marconi, or "Award Winning Marconi Bakery". Originally the beat/psychedelic group Quelli, they had some relative success in Italy covering English groups and as session men. But by the end of 1970, drummer Franz Di Cioccio, guitarist Franco Mussida, bassist Giorgio Piazza and keyboardist Flavio Premoli had formed PFM, named after the shop above their rehearsal space. Multi-instrumentalist Mauro Pagani joined shortly after, adding flute and violin. Their early shows were often in support of UK groups (Yes, Deep Purple) and their set included King Crimson and Jethro Tull covers. Their first album, Storia Di Un Minuto, is a brilliant statement. Mussida wrote the music, Pagani the lyrics, while the whole band arranged. Although some English influence (notably King Crimson) is apparent, the album is uniquely Italian and PFM. The opener, "Impressioni di Settembre" displays detail and gentleness quite unlike their British contemporaries. The tarantella of "E’ Festa!" (We like to call it "circus Prog") is both lively and loopy, a testament to both their virtuosity and humor. The compositions on the second side combine many styles, but the spirited performance keep the album as fresh as it is unique, in particular on the dramatic "Grazie Davvero". Although the album is sung in Italian, the language has a lyrical feel, rendering it more familiar rather than foreign. Progressive rock turned out to be a significant movement in Italy over the next few years - PFM’s debut was the first Italian rock album to top the Italian charts. Droves of Italian men cranked up their instruments and formed bands, however, few, Italian, British or otherwise - would surpass the excellence of PFM.
