I am a musician, all around pianist. I worked for Costa Cruise and as entertainer for many deluxe hotels in Tuscany. I also graduated in Math in 2005. I live in Siena, in the downtown just 2 minutes walking from the famous Piazza del Campo.
I started my musical studies (at the age of ten) under the guide of Maestro Cesare Atticciati, an excellent musician and harpsichord player, educated at the Mozarteum in Salzburg (Austria).
Subsequently I enters the Siena Conservatory, where he first studies with Maestro Palazzolo and later with Maestro Paola Franconi with whom he graduates.
Meanwhile I experiences with many other teachers and in the year 2000 I join a summer course in Boston at the Boston Conservatory where I study with the multi-disciplinary artist Janice Weber. In the fall of the same year I attend a Master class with the internationally known piano player Maestro Paul Badura-Skoda.
At the same time I starts my University education and graduate in Mathematics with a thesis by the title “The concept of symmetry applied to musical composition”. My deep passion for communicating and divulging musical knowledge leads me to the founding of “Terzo Tempo” (Third movement), a Non Profit Association in the municipality of Sovicille which, from 2004, promotes various musical activities addressed to and involving a wide range of people from all walks of life. In 2006 I move to Rome to attend a specialization course in the Orff methodology under the guidance of Giovanni Piazza, the Italian founder of Orff and he also participates to several seminars for the use of international dances in didactic activities for children.
During my musical and artistic education, I engage in the activity that has always fascinated me and of which I am deeply proud: playing the Solo Piano. This brought me to co-operate with several luxury holiday resorts in the province of Siena: San Felice, Borgo Pretale, Villa la Suvera, Villa Dievole, Borgo il Poggiaccio, Borgo San Pietro as well as playing at receptions and private ceremonies. Sometime, at these occasions I also performs together with other artists in a variety of formations: two pianos and voice, piano and sax, three pianos, sax and double bass.
