Salvatore Minichini (b. 1884; Salerno, Italy - d. 1977; New York, New York) was an American bandmaster and composer. As conductor of the Italian Royal Marine Band, he made several recordings of Italian marches and operatic transcriptions between 1923 and 1929. He also composed twenty two marches for band, including I Zingari ("The Gypsies"), Chimes of America, and New Frontier. The Salvatore Minichini music collection consists of Minichini’s extensive collection of manuscript scores and Italian band music. The collection contains 9,447 items and spans the years 1874 to 1973.
