Carlo Lombardo dei Baroni Lombardo di San Chirico (Naples, 28 November 1869 – Milan, 19 December 1959) known also under the composer-pseudonyms Léon Bard, Leo Bard, Leblanc and M. Fernandez, was an Italian operetta impresario, comedian, librettist, publisher and "composer" of pasticcio productions of other composers' music. He is regarded in Italy as the father of the late 19th and early 20th Century revival in Italian operetta.
Lombardo was responsible, in a somewhat debatable manner, for getting Pietro Mascagni to write the operetta Sì. His brother was the conductor and composer Costantino Lombardo. His publishing house, Lombardo Editore, continues to publish sheet music for operettas.
