Based in northern Italy, I'm currently on a theater-tour around Italy and Europe with the Prog Legends show. I'm also working with my Jazz-Fusion power trio PULSE! Trio, David's Pianosound, and many other projects as a side man...

Latest release I've played in: "Back To The Past" by David's Pianosound (January 2024).

In January 2024 I published my first educational book "FUSION LINES vo.1", for Alessio Menconi Guitar Institute

I'm a Jazz-trained guitarist with a huge love for Groove and Black Music, but my session player activity brought me to play in a big variety of genres (Funk, Soul, Jazz, Gospel, Blues, Progressive-Rock,...) and combos (including Big-Bands, Choirs and Orchestra).

Some of the artists/projects I've had the pleasure to play with: Carl Verheyen, Emiliano Pari, Donato Sensini, Andrea Balasso, Massimo Orselli, Andrea Cecchetto, Fabio Dessi... The Colours Of Gospel, The T-Bone’s Creed, Didols, New Victory Gospel, BLAK (Blues Brothers Tribute), Paolo Jus Trio, Marialuna, Mely & The Moodies, Penelope E I Diabolici Toupè, Young Big-Band Steffani, Rejouissance (Symphonic-Rock Orchestra), Django, Jank, Midway Chorus, ...

Besides my musician job I've always conducted an intense teaching activity as a guitar, harmony/theory and ensemble instructor in several music schools.
In 2024 I became an AMG (Alessio Menconi Guitar Institute) certificated instructor and started teaching for the online school.
In 2024 I also became MMI certificated instructor.

f i r s t   s t e p s

Born in a family really passionate about music, I fell in love with the guitar pretty soon, and started to take lessons at the age of 8 in the local music school (IMP in Aviano).
After a few years with my mentor Roberto Colussi, who tought me to love and play every musical style, and who first introduced me to Jazz and harmony, I took the IMP Diploma with higher grades.

My first interest was the Blues (Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray…), then someday I casually discovered Eric Johnson and everything changed…

• Singing: I took some basic lessons from Laura Battel and Francesca Bertazzo. I do backing-vocals on live gigs.

• Bass: I first approached the instrument after being shocked by Mark King’s playing, I then studied on my own down the Jazz/Funk/Soul path. I occasionally plays bass live as a sub.

In 2015 I took the IT diploma at ITST “J.F. Kennedy” in Pordenone (100/100).
