About Sugar Music

Sugar Music is the number-one independent music publisher and record producer in Italy and one of the most important in Europe. Run by Filippo Sugar, currently President of Italy’s Federation of Music Publishers FEM, it is a family business following the steps of founder Ladislao Sugar since 1932. Over the years the Sugar company has built up an impressive catalogue of modern classical works by distinguished composers such as Ennio Morricone, Luigi DallaPiccola, Luciano Berio, Goffredo Petrassi, Ivan Fedele among others, while continuing to invest in the creation of popular music with over ninety thousands copyrighted songs that often reach international fame like Time to say Goodbye, Gloria, More. Through the recent acquisition of the CAM catalogue, home to Grammy and Academy Awards winners Ennio Morricone, Riz Ortolani, Nino Rota, Luis Bacalov, Sugar is now a leading brand in movie soundtracks and film music internationally.

Aside publishing, Sugar renowned and extremely effective talent scouting abilities that were the founding pillars of Andrea Bocelli’s world-wide success since 1993, have continued to positively perform under deputy chairman Caterina Caselli Sugar.

Several times a winner of Italy’s Sanremo Festival with its tunes and artists, Sugar’s always-on approach to popular music as a venture that must appeal to international taste has managed to consistently promote the Italian tradition of popular and operatic melodies together with some of the most elegant fruits of contemporary popular music as represented by the growing European standing of artists such as Elisa, Negramaro, Malika Ayane, Raphael Gualazzi.

Behind the birth of a star, a great song, or a show always lays the patient work of many well-trai­ned, highly motivated and well directed professionals. The world-wide success of Andrea Bocelli, as well as the growing european standing of Elisa, Negramaro, Malika Ayane, Avion Travel, Raphael Gualazzi and many others before them, is but the most recent and exciting chapter in the history of a family of impresarios, publishers and record producers born almost eighty years ago with Ladislao Sugar.
