I have gathered some of the best italian bands releasing only one album in the 70's.
Also included are bands who released a second album in the 90's or later.
I know there are more bands!!

I'll have to vote for Museo Rosenbach. I like this kind of dark energy that flows in it. Semiramis is a great album too.

I haven't tried uit Maxophone yet, but I'm planning to.
Locanda Delle Fate made a great album IMHO

from the list-Locanda Della Fate

overall-Triade-La Storia di Sabazio -a very beautiful and exciting album in the vein of early ELP, Le Orme or Triumvirat

Sunscape and foglie di vetro released their albums in the 90's not in the 70's!!

I think my favrourite, at least of ones I know are listed in ProgArchives and spring to mind, is Elektriktus' Electronic Mind Waves.  From the list, it's hard to say.  I used to listen to a lot of Italian Prog (RPI), including most of those albums, but not for quite a few years. 

There are various non-one shot albums by Italian bands I still listen to frequently, such as ones by Area and Picchio dal Pozzo, and I listen to a lot of Italian soundtrack and library music by various composers.

Anyway, one that really did impress me and really helped get me into RPI in a big way in the first place was Museo Rosenbach's Zarathustra which I would have pegged to win this, and will get my vote.

Apoteosi for me, but from here I'll go with CAMPO DI MARTE

Uhhuuuhuhh - damn what a pickle!

Between Cervello, Semiramis, Buon Vecchio Charlie, Campo di Marte, Museo Rosenbach and Rocky's Filj - I think I'm going with Cervello. Fantastic album - and it proves that you certainly don't need keys to make a progressive outing work. It gives off some of the same vibes that one can find in the Danish bands Burnin Red Ivanhoe and Secret Oyster - much credited to Karsten Vogel's unique wind instruments.

There is some fantastic music up there on this list, and if anyone comes across this poll thinking: Man, I only know that Maxophone one, but it's pretty darn saucy! Then do yourself a favour and get some of the other albums featured here. The section is pretty wide spanning from symphonics to heavy prog whilst still being rooted in the RPI tradition. Not a bummer in sight.

If you already know this stuff - and love it to bits, then by all means: jump on board the Franco Battiato train! We're all quite insane on this chu chu ride, but it sure is some astonishing music...

Cervello vs. Semiramis for me.

 
Cervello wins. The saxophone at the end of track 2 did it for me. DAMN ITS SO FRIGGING GOOD!!!

MUSEO for me

J.E.T. - they had a good sense of melody. No wonder later they became big stars as Matia Bazar (with a little help of Antonella Ruggiero and Museo Rosenbach drummer). Wink

I would say : IL PAESE DEI BALOCCHI, because of its unique mystery.
