If you like New Trolls and you want to know more about them try this link (very interesting but it's available only in Italian I fear)

My biggest Italian favourite is PFM, especially Storia di un Minuto and Stati di Immaginazione are fantastic. I'm finally starting to get into Per Un Amico, so I can recommend that too.

If you like classical arrangements try Osanna (Preludio, tema, variazioni, canzona) and Rovescio della medaglia, their last album Contaminazione is said to be very good (unfortunately I haven't heard it yet).
