Claudio Lolli (Bologna, March 28,[1] 1950) is an Italian singer-songwriter, poet, writer and secondary school teacher.


His first musical experiences started in the early 70s into the Osteria delle Dame of Bologna. Francesco Guccini introduced him into the music company EMI Italiana, who edited his first four LP from 1972 to 1976. The themes of his albums are incentered into political issues, as for example the album Un uomo in crisi he follows the events of Antonio Gramsci's life, but also in personal event of life, as the song "quando la morte avrà" (when the death will have). His main success are the songs "Ho visto anche degli zingari felici", "Aspettando Godot", "Michel", "Quando la morte avrà", "Quanto amore", "Borghesia", that are nowadays recognized as classic songs of Italian popular music of the 1970s.

He started his career as a writer in the early 1980s and he has written five novels in twenty years. Antipatici antipodi, his first work, that Lolli started writing in 1972, was published in 1997.
