Guccini was born in Modena.

As recalled by a verse of one of his songs, « it was fate that in three months » moved his family out of Modena because of World War II. Guccini spent his childhood and part of his youth at his grandparents’ place in a small village in the Apennine Mountains called Pàvana in the province of Pistoia, (Toscana). The memory of the years of his youth spent in the somewhat archaic society of the mountains of central Italy was to be ever-present in his songs and books.

He then moved back to his family in Modena and attended the local « istituto magistrale ». He worked for a couple of years as a reporter for a local newspaper, the Gazzetta di Modena. In 1960 the Guccinis moved to Bologna where Guccini studied at the local university. From 1965 to 1985 he taught Italian at Dickinson College (an American school) in Bologna.

He played in local bands such as The Hurricanes and Gatti and achieved success in the 1960s writing songs for an Italian band, Nomadi, also from Modena. Some of these successes include « Noi non ci saremo » (« We won’t be there ») and « Dio è morto » (« God is dead »). In the 1970s, Nomadi recorded two albums of Guccini’s songs as well as a live album, Album Concerto, featuring him. Guccini’s debut album was Folk beat n. 1 (1967).

Guccini has always said that his first two works, Folk beat n. 1 and Due anni dopo (« Two years later »), were essays or experiements, which is noticeable in the quite spare accompaniment to many of the songs on these albums.
