Notturno Concertante is an Italian neo-progressive rock band established in 1984. It has since released five albums, and collaborated in several other projects, most notably with Tony Pagliuca (from Italian progressive band Le Orme) and Italian novelist and humorist Stefano Benni. Some of their compositions have also been used as soundtracks for Italian television shows.


The band was founded by Lucio Lazzaruolo (keyboards and guitar) and Raffaele Villanova (guitar) with Michele Iacoviello (percussions), Giancarmine Tammaro (vocals), and Enzo Matarazzo (flute). Their style includes influences from Van der Graaf Generator, Genesis, and other progressive rock bands from the 1970s, as well as folk music.
