The Piccolo Coro dell'Antoniano (English: Little Choir of Antoniano) is an Italian children's choir from Bologna.


The choir was created by Mariele Ventre in 1963 in Antoniano Institute to sing together with little kids at the Zecchino d'Oro festival, opened only five years earlier. In the very beginning there were only several kids in the choir but it changed very fast and the choir became very big (up to about 80 children at some time).

In 1995, after Ventre's death the choir was taken by Sabrina Simoni and changed its name to Piccolo Coro "Mariele Ventre" dell' Antoniano.

The children sing lots of very different songs: children songs, classical songs, classic of pop songs, movie songs, etc.

Since November 22, 2003, they are Italian Good Will Ambassadors.
