Welcome to Swonderful.Net Conte Online, the first site exclusively dedicated to the Italian musician and composer Paolo Conte. Here below you'll find general information about the site and its aims including credits and acknowledgments and of course the ubiquitous disclaimer.

This site was established for the purpose of commentary and criticism of the works and output of the musician Paolo Conte. A further aim is bringing together and providing general information of use to all followers.

Exclusive articles and reviews will be added periodically but are intended as no more than a starting point and original submissions are encouraged. If you have anything at all to contribute, even just help in translating the site into your own language, don't hesitate to get in touch: contributors@swonderful.net

In order to remain viable and develop as a service to all Conte admirers, the site makes use of a limited amount of advertising and affiliation. These sponsors have been chosen, not just because they are likely to be of use or interest, but more importantly for their reliability and ability to deliver.

In the unlikely event that any should fall short of these expectations, please send an e-mail once to: log@swonderful.net. Although this site cannot be held responsible, the information will be compiled and acted upon to ensure that you can make use of any links from these pages with complete confidence.
