Not too many books and other sources of information on Italian prog, especially for non-Italian language readers.

ESSAYS AND STUDIES

MUSIC IN THE CITIES

one in French:

 

and a Japanese one, containing black & white pictures of all the records described, but difficult to understand for non-Japanese readers.
Please notice that my own ItalianProg book (see the top of this page) is also available in Japanese.
