At seven year-old I got near the music studying piano with the M°. Gianluca Spalvieri (an European level pianist).
At twelve I bought my first electric guitar studying first as self-taught person then taking private lessons.
Among the various studies, I frequented the triennial course given by Percento Musica in Rome where I "knew" the instrument with teachers such as Umberto Fiorentino, Franco Ventura, Massimiliano Rosati, Stefano Micarelli and others. At the same time, for two years, I studied flamenco guitar with Roberto Valle.
Between 1998 and 2001 I recorded four demo: two as guitar player (Infinite Dreams and Souls ) and two with Moonlight Comedy (…And The Moonlight Dispelled A Mystery and Second Shadow ), thanks to which I received several proposals by different Italian and international labels. At the age of 19, I played with Neil Zaza in a live in concert in Rome.
September 2004 saw the first Moonlight Comedy album “The Life Inside” produced by Legend Music in Rome and distributed in 26 nations by Lion Music . In October 2004, the Milanese label Videoradio released in Italy my first album (The Beginning). After the success of both the albums (The Life Inside appreciated by world press and The Beginning that got the first place among the more downloaded albums of Vitaminic ) I have had the honor to sign a Lion Music contract as solo guitar player; so in September 2005 I released “Parallel Worlds” , my second album, this time a worldwide distribution. This album has got for various weeks the Top10 in Germany , Norway and in the famous American website Guitar9.
In February 2006 saw work commence on the next Moonlight Comedy album “Dorothy” which was released in 2007 and also my second solo album on Lion Music “My Secret Diary” released July 2007 on Lion Music.
