Patrizio Buanne (born 20 September 1978) is an Italian baritone. He is currently signed with Next Plateau Records, a division of Universal Music.
Buanne was born in Naples, and moved to Vienna with his family when he was five years old. He began performing in public at the age of eleven, and after winning several talent competitions as a youth, performed for Pope John Paul II and a crowd of 85,000 in Poland in 1997. This performance enabled him to sign his first record contract.
Buanne's debut album, The Italian, was released in 2005. It is composed of eleven tracks of traditional Italian songs. The Italian reached #10 on the Pop chart in the United Kingdom, and also charted in Australia, where it was certified as double Platinum.
Universal has announced that Buanne will perform on a national tour of Australia in May of 2006. In April 2006, Buanne agreed to having his portrait created by portrait painter Roger P. Thomas, to raise up to £50,000 for charity.
Buanne also recorded the football anthem "Stand Up! (Champions Theme)" that was played at the conclusion of all matches at the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany. The song is an orchestral remix of the original Village People song "Go West" made popular by the British duo Pet Shop Boys.
