Italian singer born in Terni, Italy.



Lucilla is from the central Italian region of Umbria, and during the 70's and 80's of the 20th century is considered one of the most known players in the folk revival along with [a=Giovanna Marini]. Lucilla has devoted her studies to Italian, especially Umbrian, and has worked on the bases of this influence in many different projects through-out her musical career in addition to being a writer and researcher of folk music. She has consistently earned her place in the Mediterranean music scene, proving her stylistic versatility amongst her contemporaries which include [a=Carlo Rizzo], [a=Juán José Mosalini] and [a=Gianluigi Trovesi].



She began singing at the age of 15 with a pop group formed together with friends, only becoming interested in folk music a little later on, when she worked alongside researcher Valentino Paparelli, an expert on the musical traditions of Umbria, and in particular the area of Valnerina.

In 1977, [a=Giovanna Marini] impressed by her voice, asked her to be part of her ensemble, [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Quartetto+Vocale+Giovanna+Marini]Quartetto Vocale[/url] which reached popularity both at home and abroad in the space of a few years. With [url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Quartetto+Vocale+Giovanna+Marini]Quartetto Vocale[/url], Lucilla performed in some of the most important theatres of Europe. Singing the original and complex music of [a=Giovanna Marini] helped Lucilla develop an impressive technique and refined musical sensitivity.



From 1986 onwards she sang in some of the works of [a=Roberto De Simone], whom inspired Neapolitan movements such as the Nuova Compagnia di Canto Popolare with the examples being: Stabat Mater and Carmina Vivianee from 1987 in addition to Mistero e Processo di Giovanna D’Arco and Requiem per Pier Paolo Pasolini from 1990.

During this period she also worked with several jazz musicians and composers with whom she made some interesting recordings with, appearing on [a=Paolo Damiani]'s Anninnia and [a=Giancarlo Schiaffini]'s Per Devozione.



In 1987 she completed a long tour of France as part of the company Tango, Memoria di Buenos Aires, which saw the participation of some of the most important Argentinian musicians. In this period she also set up her own recital of Italian songs of the 60's, Un sogno così, where she interpreted a series of important tracks from those years by [a=Domenico Modugno] and [a=Paolo Pietrangeli] in addition to others.



During the early 90's, she begins her career as a soloist but does not neglect her collaborations with other musicians which include [a=Ambrogio Sparagna] once again, in addition to many other artists such as [a=Claude Barthélémy], [a=Carlo Rizzo], [a=Philippe Eidel] and [a= Michael Riessler].

In addition to being the leader of the ensemble Trio Rouge which include [a=Vincent Courtois] and [a=Michel Godard], Lucilla belongs to the French baroque group [a=L'Arpeggiata] which was founded in 2000 and directed by [a=Christina Pluhar].
