Stefano Scandolara was an Italian poet, writer and lyricist. His repertoire was very wide.

He began writing poems and short stories for fun, but his real debut was as lyricist with Straniero sung by Michele at the Sanremo Festival in 1971. Then there was Il Viso Di Lei sung by I Giganti always at the Sanremo Festival in 1972. In the same year he wrote Domenica Sera for Mina, meanwhile wrote Canal Grande for Iva Zanicchi which was for a few years Festival of Venice's theme song. He also wrote La Tana Degli Artisti, a very suggestive piece by Ornella Vanoni. In 1977 his song Bella Mia performed by Daniel Sentacruz participated at the Festivalbar.

The great love for his hometown led him to write Scampoli Di Bologna, an entire album in "Bolognese dialect performed by a dialectal fine reciter Mario Medici, also called MariƩn. Between a poems and another found TELENORD, becoming its director and one of the DJs. But because of this so strong passion for free radio stations to which he devoted all his time, he did not have more time for his poetry.
