BioThe 1966 founders of the band were Aldo Tagliapietra (voice, guitars), Nino Smeraldi (guitars), Claudio Galietti (chitarra e basso) and Marino Rebeschini (drums). After the single "Fiori e colori" (1967), Rebeschini left and was replaced by Michi dei Rossi. In 1968 they issued a second single, "Senti l'estate che torna". At the same time a new musician, Toni Pagliuca, joined the group. This line-up was responsible of the first LP, Ad gloriam (1968), a pop-psychedeilic work that scored little success. The following year Gallietti and Rebeschini left also, and Le Orme set what was to be considered their "classic" line-up, which issued their most renowned progressive LPs of the 1970s (Uomo di pezza, Felona e Sorona and Contrappunti). The last two works saw the collaboration of producer and piano player Gian Piero Reverberi. The group split up in the early 1980s, but reformed in 1986. In 1992 Pagliuca left the band, and was substituted by Michele Bon. Le Orme last three works (Il fiume, Elementi and L'infinito) show a return to classic progressive sound, and form somewhat a trilogy pivoting on the "becoming" of the human being. .. .......... ..........
