I was born in Syracuse, Italy, where I spent the first 25 years of my life.
Here I discovered my passion for the classical guitar and I started studying, studying and studying... At only 19 years I got my diploma at the Conservatorium of Pescara with the highest appreciation "cum laude" of the jury. Besides my studies, I regularly participated in master classes to further develop my techniques with well-known guitarists such as David Russell. Then I decided to criss-cross Europe for performing and giving master classes. I finally settled down in Germany where I lived for 10 years. Here I built up the MUSIKKUNSTSCHULE offering music courses, concerts and art events.
Parallel to my activity as a musician I taught Italian as L2 at the University of Weimar and Erfurt and at the "Europaische Sommerakademie" at the Bauhaus-University.
I attended post-graduate studies at the "Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Weimar" with Prof. Thomas Müller-Pering. I recorded my first CD "Viaggio Latino" containing my own compositions which were also published by Trekel Hamburg. Two years later, I registered a second CD dedicated to J. S. Bach and D. Scarlatti called "Anno 1685".
Furthermore the composer Giuseppe Torrisi has dedicated to me some compositionsand transcriptions for classical guitar.
In 2012 I moved to Toulouse with my family and opened a music venue called “L’Ouverture” dedicated to classical guitar performances and gastronomy. After seven years of successful business activities, I moved to London in 2019. Here I found the Dante Society London whose purpose is the promotion of Italian language and culture. Since October 2019 I've been working as classical guitar performance tutor at the University of West London. In 2020 I launched Dolce Vita London, the crowning achievement of my past activities.
