Homero Manzi

Homero Nicolas Manzioni Prestera, better known as Homero Manzi was an Argentine Tango lyricist, author of various famous tangos.

He was born November first of 1907 in Anatuya (province of Santiago del Estero), Argentina. He was interested in literature and tango since he was young. After a brief incursion in journalism, Manzi worked as a literature and Castilian professor but for political reasons (in addition to his membership in the Union Civica Radical) he was expelled of his professorship and decided to dedicate himself to the arts.

In 1940 Manzi started what would be a long collaboration with Ulyses Petit de Murat, writing the screenplay for Con el dedo en el gatillo ("Finger on the trigger") (1940) and later Fortin alto ("High Fort") (1940).
