The Francesco Lanza Tradition

A pupil of Clementi, Francesco Lanza is regarded as the father of the Neapolitan school of piano, which encompassed many generations of Italian pianists. Among the important figures of this tradition are Michelangelo Ruso and Franceso Simonetti, whose students were Beniamino Cesi and Giovanni Maria Anfossi respectively, two of the main pillars of the Italian school.
