Giovanni D'Anzi was an Italian songwriter.
D'Anzi was born in Milan. In 1935 he wrote music and lyrics of "O mia bela Madonina" ("My beautiful little Madonna"), a song dedicated to his hometown which soon became very popular and a sort of unofficial city anthem.
Between the 1930s and 1950s Giovanni D'Anzi and Alfredo Bracchi formed a very prolific pair of songwriters. They worked for radio, cinema and theater productions.
