Armando Gallo



Who is Armando Gallo?

Armando Gallo is an Italian journalist and photographer.

Armando Gallo has been a photo journalist since 1967, when he accepted a challenge to interview The Beatles for the Italian magazine, "BIG". Inspired by this experience he left his career as an architectural designer to become London correspondent for the Italian rock weekly "CIAO 2001", covering the ever changing English pop scene.

His most high-profile work was a book about the band Genesis entitled The Evolution of a Rock Band originally published in 1978. This book is an extended history of the band's early days which has never been covered by any other biographical source.

The book was reprinted as I Know What I Like in 1980 with an update about the three years since the first printing. This book was never widely available. He also has written several books on Genesis founding member Peter Gabriel. Both sets of books are among the most widely sought memorabilia for fans of the group and Gabriel worldwide.

In 1982, with his brother Claudio, he formed Fratelli Gallo Editori in Italy, producing and publishing over 40 books and the monthly magazine PIX Photorock.
