I started my musical journey on the end of the 80s studying jazz techniques and improvisation on bass guitar. At the same time I attends classes at DAMS (art school) in Bologna, very lively city regarding cultural activities in the social squatted centres, in such places I experienced my first musical activities that will leave an enduring mark into my artistic career.
Later I’m focus my attention and interest on different instruments coming from different geographical areas -from the Mediterranean basin to north-central Europe, studying specifically repertory and techniques of those ancient instruments: hurdy gurdy (France), santur (Iran), nyckelharpa (Sweden).
In the year 2005 I found a course of nyckelharpa with Marco Ambrosini at the “Scuola di Musica Popolare di Forlimpopoli”.
At the moment I write my music for my string trio “ArKitèsi” (violin, nyckelharpa, contrabass) and preparing to record a CD with them.
