Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 23, 1943
Cremona
Lombardia, Italy
Death: May 29, 1965
Cremona
Lombardia, Italy

He was an Italian singer and guitar player, quite famous in the sixties because he was Mina's younger brother (Anna Maria Mazzini, quite famous in Italy as a pop singer). He left his commercial school at the end of the fifties to start singing with a band named "I solitari" ("The Loners"), the same group that launched his sister some time before. He was succesful and became very popular singing in a night club named "Principe di Piemonte", in Viareggio, Tuscany for at least two years. Then, his sister decide to introduce him officially to the public during the bicycle sporting event called "Sei giorni ciclistica milanese" in Milan in 1962, but it turned into a flop because the microphones didn't work and the public began to hiss. Alfredo lost heart and decided to leave his career. He got a job in his father's factory but he wasn't very lucky because it went bankrupt some time later, in 1964. In the meantime, in 1963, he left his hometown to serve in the army and had just come back when he had the car accident. When he was back home, he had decided to begin his career as a singer once again, getting back to his old friends in the band "I Solitari" and was already singing with them and playing his guitar, just as he did before. That night he was just coming home from a dancing party with a friend of his at three and a half in the morning when, along the "Codogno-Cremona" highway, near the built-up area of Roggione, he lost control of his car, maybe because of the slippery road, as it was raining. The car, a Volkswagen gift from his sister went off the road, crashed through a fence of a garden, near a house along the road, and bumped against a tree. Unfortunately, the collision threw Alfredo out of his seat and the car fell back on his body. His friend, shocked but alive, called for help and the first car that was passing by was the one of his band friends that were coming home too. They tried to remove the car while waiting for the amulance, but it was all in vain. Alfredo died on his way to the hospital in consequence of the staving in of his chest. He got his nickname, "Geronimo", because of his particular Roman nose. He had just cut a record and the song, "Quando dovrai partire", came out after his death.
