Fast and lively

The Italian word "Allegro" means "fast", brisk", and "cheerful", and is usually played at a tempo of 120 to 156 beats per minute.

In music history, the word "Allegro" appeared in a music treatise that published in Venice in 1535. The musician, Silvestro Ganassi Dal Fontego, used the word to describe a vibrato with a cheerful feeling as a playing style.
