BORING INFO:

I’m a composer from Italy whose style blends late-romantic music conventions with more innovative and contemporary musical idioms, combining soft orchestral textures, avant-garde sound effects and electronic music. I like to compose in a variety of styles ranging from classical to jazz to rock and electronic, because I believe that different musical languages can each help convey different feelings and ideas.

My compositions have been performed by orchestras such as Abu Dhabi’s NSO Symphony Orchestra, Sanremo Symphony Orchestra, Arturo Toscanini Philharmonic Orchestra, Pomeriggi Musicali in Milan and Florence Chamber Orchestra, with performances on Italian Television and Radio. I also compose and perform with the electronic-music band Lefebo (check that out as well!)

Education:
-Diploma in Electric Bass with top grades (Lizard Academy of Music - Florence, Italy)
-Bachelors in Music Composition with honors (Scuola di Musica di Fiesole - Florence, Italy)
-Specialization Course in Music Composition for Film with Academy Award-winning composer Luis Bacalov (Accademia Chigiana - Siena, Italy)
-Masters in Screen Scoring at USC (but you already know..), where I’ve been awarded the Harry Warren Scholarship (you didn’t know about this though!)

If you like my music please feel free to contact me anytime and I’ll be happy to work with you!
