YES. It exists, and a lot of it is very good. This bead is dedicated to the emergent indie/alt/pop music scene in Italy mostly, though not exclusively, since 1990. While many musical genres are expressed in Italy, the best are those that avoid drippy sentimentality while maintaining the national flavor.

What are some of the characteristics of Italian Rock? It’s more warm than cool, more acoustic than electric, decidedly romantic, melodic, and poetic revealing an unabashed appreciation of beauty, and a sonic texture recalling film scores. Some of Italy’s cinematic style also seeps into the videos which can range from sophisticated to silly. Italians are good musicians [often due to classical training], snappy dressers, and possess a useful sense of the absurd. I’m aware che ho bevuto il Kool-aid, but given the number of French beads (and those of other countries, cities and states) I decided it was time I ‘represent.’
