RIP Vincenzo ‘Enzo’ Restucci


Italian drummer and percussionist Vincenzo ‘Enzo’ Restucci died in Rome on December 5, 2021. He was 80. Restucci was born in Naples on March 19, 1941 and graduated from the Conservatory of L’Aquila. He worked with such notable orchestras as Dizzy Gillespie and Benny Goodman. He became the drummer for the Rai orchestra and was heard on countless television broadcasts. In much demand he worked with Ennio Morricone, and Sergio Endrigo and Claudio Baglioni among others. He worked in eight consecutive editions of the San Remo Festival from 1993-2000. Later he became a teacher at the Perugis Conservatory. He worked on two Euro-westerns: “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” 1966 and “My Name is Nobody” – 1973 that we know of but probably many more.
