I was born in Prato on May 6th 1985 and I was lucky enough to grow up in a musical environment. My father is a record collector and thanks to him I had the possibility to listen to and get to know a lot of different kinds of music from classical to experimental at a young age. I taught myself how to play the guitar when I was 9 and subsequently started to study formally in various schools. In recent years, my research in the field of composition is drawn towards the development of thematic sequences within the borders of a predetermined framework of parameters. I enjoy using the resulting material to push myself into new territories of improvisation driven by interplay.
I graduated at the conservatory of Vicenza “Arrigo Pedrollo” in jazz guitar and I keep practicing and always looking for a deeper understanding of my craft through diverse master classes and seminars.
