  Music of Italy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Italy did retain, however, a Romantic musical tradition in the early 20th century, exemplified by composers whose music was anchored in the previous century, including Arrigo Boito, Ruggiero Leoncavallo, Pietro Mascagni, Francesco Cilea, and Ottorino Respighi.
These traditions reflect Italy's geographic position in southern Europe and in the center of the Mediterranean Sea; Arabic, African, Celtic, Persian, Roma, and Slavic influences, as well as her rough geography and the historic dominance of small city states have all combined to allow notably diverse musical styles to coexist in close proximity.
Italy was at the forefront of the progressive rock movement of the 1970s, a style that primarily developed in Europe but also gained airplay and popularity elsewhere in the world.
