Who was Pippo Barzizza?

Giuseppe Pippo Barzizza was an Italian composer, arranger, conductor, and music director.

Giuseppe Barzizza, called Pippo, was born in Genova on 15 May 1902, and he died in Sanremo in 4 April 1994. Music director, composer, arranger, and musician, he became very famous in the 1930s and '40s, at the beginning with Blue Star Orchestra and then with Orchestra Cetra, thanks to whom he found its own character and line-up, to be considered "one of the best Italian big orchestras able to perform such a great jazz language." He composed many songs and film soundtracks as well. His treatise, Barzizza's method's considered a great instrumental study, was printed in 1952. His basics and exercises "are so clear that's it's enough to read this little book to overcome any doubts or exhitation!”. Title: ”The modern conduction into pop music”. It was meaningful also based on Franco Franchi's analysis, who said "Barzizza was among the first to be interested in jazz music and swing and he became for many years, together with his friend and rival Cinico Angelini, a great example for his fellows, both for his extraordinary compositions and his skills to find out new talents and songs, and for his attempt to give a modern mark to italian music".
