About Me

Guitarist, composer and arranger from Genoa.
At the age of 13, he begins to play the electric guitar, inspired by the English and American rock music of the Sixties. All this under the direction of the well-known guitarist from Genoa, Pier Niccolò (Bambi) Fossati.0C1A9231
After a first approach to the instrument, he becomes attached to the american Delta blues, the great black singers, later to the Chicago scene and finally to the British blues of the Sixties. He begins to develop his musical path in this direction.
After a few years, his interest in folk music intensifies and postpones for a long time the electric guitar. He dedicates himself to the acoustic guitar, to bluegrass, to country music and the different styles of the american guitar playing. He studies during several years with the Italian pioneer of Flatpicking Beppe Gambetta. Afterwards there are international workshops, live performances with some appreciation. This convinces him to begin a more severe and dense study, to revive also the electric guitar.
2006 he registers at the Accademia di Musica Moderna Lizard in Fiesole (Florence). There his musical vision increases and enters the world of fusion and jazz-rock. He studies the great masters of this genre, like Mike Stern and Scott Henderson.
2007 he visits the  Siena jazz festival summer workshops. Five years later, he‘s awarded in Florence in electric rock-blues guitar and harmony of modern music.
The great passion for the cinema and the historical soundtracks drive him to a musical way which dissuades him from the idea to be merely an instrumentalist or executor. He tries to work as composer of soundtracks and film scores.0C1A8969
He participates at the workshop Lizard sound track and the crash course of Orchestration, with the aim to enter in the world of soundtracks.
He decides to go to the USA, to New York. During two and a half years, he works at recording studios and for commercial promotions with the Italian soundtracks composer Simone Giuliani, as studio guitarist and arranger. Moreover, he plays in several Brooklyn scene bands and he performs few live sessions all around the city.
He returns to Europe, and after a period in Berlin, in which he composes and records music for American short movies, he settles down in Zurich, Switzerland. Here he begins to collaborate actively with „NZZ Format“ and local producers. He produces music for commercials and TV-documentaries. Furthermore, he collaborates for several New York projects, within the range of short and long movies.
