Maurizio Arcieri (30 April 1942 – 29 January 2015) formerly leader of The New Dada, a 1960s Italian beat music band, and a member of Krisma, was a successful singer in the 1970s

In the spring of 1967 The New Dada supported The Beatles in their Milan concert. The group eventually split. Some members of The New Dada follow Maurizio as supporting group. "Ballerina" and "Il comizio" were released.

Maurizio participated at the "Disco per l'Estate" Festival with "Cinque Minuti e poi..."; the song is one of the greatest hits of the year and the leit-motiv of "Quelli belli siamo noi" ("We Are the Beautiful Ones"), a "musicarello" (musical comedy movie) in which Maurizio acts and sings some of his hits. The movie features - among others - Carlo Dapporto, Carlo delle Piane, Isabella Biagini, Ric e Gian and a young Loredana Bertè. Maurizio was invited as a guest in the most important TV shows of the time. Some videos of those appearances are now available. The album "Maurizio - 1970" is released.

The albums "Maurizio - 1975" (a collection of Maurizio's cool seventies singles), and "Trasparenze" (a progressive experiment) were released.

Maurizio was then chosen as the Italian narrator for the pan-European album Peter and the Wolf, a Polydor project that involves Brian Eno, Phil Collins, Alvin Lee, Manfred Mann and many others.

Arcieri died on 29 January 2015, in Varese, Italy, aged 72
