Picture of Carlo Zampighi as Almaviva

Carlo Zampighi was born in Galeata (Forlì) in 1927 and died there on January 29th, 1997. Zampighi had a rather short career, but he was one of the most appreciated lirico-leggero tenors of the 50s. He was a pupil of Lamberto Bergamini. His singing was oriented by an elegant "Schipa style", to which Zampighi added a touch of youthful freshness. In my opinion, his 33 rpm LP of duets with Margherita Carosio, under Nino Sonzogno, is one of the best Italian records of the 50s.
