A little-known first solo album appeared in 1972, simply titled with his real name Antonio Torquati; this was a ten-track instrumental moog and keyboards album including cover versions of 60's hits, like Oh! Happy day or Aquarius.
A second one, Gli occhi di un bambino came out on RCA in 1973 and went totally unnoticed at the time, being discovered by many after the recent Akarma reissue. Described by some dealers as a good example of symphonic prog, the album is in fact heavily orchestrated and mainly falls into the pop field, but it contains some classical and light progressive elements.
Torquati has totally disappeared as a solo artist after a commercial single in 1977, Tenero al cioccolato (with which he won the Disco Mare contest), but he kept collaborating with many popular artists and still has a recording studio in Rome.
His return to a record release was in 2007 with a new CD entitled Vita, amore e musica.
