Characterized by remarkable vocal skills evident in the harmonization of the songs and texts often humorous but always in good taste, they have been one of the most long-lived Italian musical groups. They were often anticipators in Italy of fashions and musical genres, such as Rock and roll: already in 1956 the Quartetto Cetra recorded in Italian a version of Rock Around the Clock, with the text written by Tata Giacobetti, entitled [i]L'Orologio matto[/i]. In addition, with programs such as [i]Biblioteca di Studio Uno[/i] (with the famous literary and mocking parodies) and [i]Non cantare, spara[/i] have entered the history of Italian television.
