Valzer per un Amore – I have discovered this song years ago, and every now and than I need to search for it again. Now I have compiled a post about this song to find it better next time.
The song has been written by Fabrizio de André who is one of the most important singers and composer of songs in Italy. You can find the most important information about Fabrizi de André in the Wikipedia.
The melody of this song is based on a composition by the Italian composer Gino Marinuzi – Valzer Campestre. This is a recording of the Valzer Campestre played by the Banda dell’Arma dei Carabinieri
Valzer Campestre, dalla Suite Siciliana di Gino Marinuzzi.
Qui è eseguito dalla Banda dell’Arma dei Carabinieri.
Una celebre versione è quella di Fabrizio De Andre nel disco Nuvole Barocche.

I have found many videos with versions by other artists. I have compiled the best videos in my playlist below. In this playlist you can also find several videos with the original Valzer Campestre by Gino Marinuzzi.
