not only guitar

After starting out with an interest in instrumental rock music I cultivated a passion for acoustic folk (new age) and jazz guitar music. After the self-produced "Rivelazioni" CD in 1999 I started my live experiences, in my homeland, with a repertoire mostly of original compositions for solo guitar.
I played flute and clarinet as a guest with a world-music band, I collaborated for Sangit (a middle-eastern inspired music show) and a medieval music combo.
In the following "Incauto sperimentatore" album I developed compositions for standard and fretless guitar (a custom-made model), with the help of a few guests. Later on these two CDs, after a little re-touching, have been published on the Ethnoworld label.
With the group Ivänjpsy Orchest we proposed traditional inspired instrumental songs, alternating guitar and clarinet in ensamble with trombone, accordion, double bass and percussion.
For a brief period I have experimented with a band with a repertoire of 1940s/50s arranged in " house-lounge " style as well as jamming with funky-style musicians.
I have played guitar and clarinet with street art and dance theater groups and I have participated in contests for music applied to images and guitar solo.
"Onirico" is my third album.

In 2018 I've got a bachelor's degree in composition at Nino Rota Conservatory of music studying under the guidance of maestro Riccardo Panfili. For this final exam, I wrote a piece for a large orchestra and an essay about the aesthetics of Ferruccio Busoni and Hans Werner Henze. In December 2018 I've got honourable mention by the Noosa ISAM solo piano international composition competition.
In 2019 I started a master degree in composition at Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory of music in Torino, studying under the guidance of maestro Pino Elos, and won a scholarship from De Sono Associazione per la musica.
In July 2020 I was finalist at Carlo Sanvitale chamber music international composition competition.
