In 1953 the critic Arrigo Polillo from the pages of the magazine Musica Jazz expressed himself thus towards the "pianist" Piero Angela, who later became a well-known journalist and television broadcaster - "Angela is undoubtedly a classy pianist, certainly one of the best I've heard in Italy. Her style is modern, dry, vigorous, and her compact phrasing is supported by a robust swing ”.

The journalist and writer Adriano Mazzoletti in his book "L'Italia del Jazz" (Stefano Mastruzzi Editore) writes - "Piero Angela was the most extraordinary non-professional musician in the history of Italian jazz”.
