Vincenzo Jannacci (b. June 3, 1935 in Milan), more commonly known as Enzo Jannacci ( or ), is an Italian singer-songwriter, actor and stand-up comedian. He is regarded as one of the most important artists in the post-war Italian music scene.
Jannacci is widely considered as a master of musical art and cabaret, and in the course of his career has collaborated with many famous Italian musicians, performing artists, journalists, television personalities and comedians. He has written around thirty albums and soundtracks, some of which have since come to be seen as milestones in the history of Italian popular music. In the second half of the 1990s he was considered to be finished as an artist, but in recent years he has managed to appeal to a new audience and has won awards and recognition for his latest recorded works.
He is also regarded as one of the founders of Italian rock and roll music, along with Adriano Celentano, Luigi Tenco and Giorgio Gaber, with whom he collaborated for over forty years.
