Giuseppe Manente (1867–1941) was an Ital­ian com­pos­er, orches­tra con­duc­tor and trum­peter. Manente received his first musi­cal edu­ca­tion from Father Libo­rio, direc­tor of the Civic Band of Sor­ren­to and the Gan­glione­si Band of Music. At the lat­ter band he became a trum­peter and then stud­ied instru­men­tal prac­tice with Domeni­co Gat­ti and har­mo­ny, coun­ter­point and com­po­si­tion with G. Guar­ro and Camil­lo De Nardis at the Con­ser­va­to­ry of St. Peter at Majel­la in Naples. He also stud­ied at the Roy­al Con­ser­va­to­ry of Madrid with Emilio Ser­ra­no and lat­er at the Nation­al Acad­e­my of San­ta Cecil­ia in Rome with Cesare De Santis.

In 1889 Manente won the com­pe­ti­tion spon­sored by the Capo­mu­si­ca’s 60th Infantry Reg­i­ment in Novara, where he par­tic­i­pat­ed in con­certs at the Tori­no Nation­al Exhi­bi­tion in 1900. In 1902 he direct­ed the orches­tra of the Roy­al Palace in Turin in a con­cert of his own com­po­si­tions, in the pres­ence of King Vit­to­rio Emanuele III and the roy­al fam­i­ly. In 1905 he became Capo­mu­si­ca of the band of the 3rd Infantry Reg­i­ment in Pis­toia. He also direct­ed the 43rd Infantry Reg­i­ment. In 1910, at the request of the Min­istry of Defense, he com­posed the Musi­cal Frag­ments for the Use of the Line Infantry Reg­i­ment Gym­nas­tics. Also at the request of the min­istry he was appoint­ed Capo­mu­si­ca band of the 2nd Reg­i­ment of Gra­natieri in Rome in 1911, with which in 1918 he held a series of con­certs in New York. In the same year, with the band, he was also in Paris, Lon­don and Brus­sels, attend­ing the cel­e­bra­tions of the end of World War I.

In 1921 he was called to Egypt by King Fouad I to direct the band of the Roy­al Guards, a post he held until 1924, the year in which he won the post of direc­tor of the new­ly formed Guardia di Finan­za Band, which debuted under his lead­er­ship on 25 April 1925, with a con­cert at Piaz­za Colon­na in Rome.

In addi­tion to mil­i­tary groups, he was also direc­tor of civic bands, includ­ing those of Luc­ca, Pes­cia and Mon­te­ca­ti­ni Terme. He was artis­tic direc­tor of Adol­fo Lap­ini’s edi­tions in Flo­rence and a crit­ic for music mag­a­zines such as Il Plet­tro of Milan, Man­dolin­ist Life of Bologna and L’Es­tu­di­anti­na of Paris.

He com­posed and tran­scribed more than 800 works for band, includ­ing mil­i­tary march­es, sym­phon­ic, funer­al and reli­gious works, char­ac­ter­is­tic pieces, sym­phonies etc. He com­posed the music for an act The Regat­ta and the operetta The Swan Par­adise. He was also the com­pos­er of cham­ber music, vocal music, songs for voice and man­dolin, and more than a hun­dred com­po­si­tions for string and pinch instru­ments (much in vogue at the time). His com­po­si­tions for piano orches­tra are still very much per­formed in Japan.
