Italian singer-songwriter Pino Masi (born 1946) has always followed the ?cantastorie? tradition. During the years 1966-1969 he took part in the students and workers riots and the birth of leftist movements such as Potere Operaio and Lotta Continua. He has always been in the front line when needed, and his songs became the soundtrack of the Italian protest during the sixties and the seventies. He has collaborated with artists such as Dario Fo and Pier Paolo Pasolini, and helped legendary Italian songwriter (and friend) Fabrizio De André with his first public concert. He has never taken back his origins, and nowadays he keeps singing for peace, for justice.... for a living.
