Italy’s Golden Voice. Clever copywriters called him ‘the Bing Crosby of Italy’.

Carlo Buti (1902-1963) is considered the first superstar of Italian popular music. He was blessed with vocal cords from which tears seemed to flow. As a milkman and later a goldsmith, he did his work singing.

Encouraged by friends, he took singing lessons. His beautiful tenor and soft sound brought him worldwide fame. He succeeded at Carnegie Hall, attracted 240,000 visitors in Buenos Aires and sold millions of records.

When rock ‘n’ roll emerged, he retired to a hillside and fell into oblivion – although his voice still briefly attracted attention on the soundtrack of Martin Scorsese’s boxing film ‘Raging Bull’.
