Franceso Balilla Pratella (February 1, 1880 - May 17, 1955) was an Italian composer and musicologist.

Life and work

Franceso Balilla Pratella studied at the Pesaro conservatory where he was a pupil of Mascagni. He signed the Futurist Manifesto in 1911 and composed a number of modernist works for voice as well as for orchestra and chamber ensemble. He is the author of the "Manifesto of Futurist Musicians". He is largely known, however, for his dedication to collecting the folk music of his native region of Italy, Romagna.
