Energetic, experienced and creative violin player who likes to inspire people and students around the world, open to new ideas and opportunities.

He was born in 1975. In 1998 he obtained his bachelor's degree in violin at the "A.Peri" musical Institute in Reggio Emilia.  In 2007 he obtained a master's degree, which is the highest music education degree in the Italian university system with a score of 109/110.

He passed the qualifying examination at the "Gustav Mahler Jugend Orchestra” conducted by Claudio Abbado,  he won the third prize at the international competition of Tortona and second prize at "Racconigi City" competition (the first prize was not assigned ).

From 1999 to 2001 he was admitted by audition at the Musical Institute in Lugano (Switzerland) furthering his musical studies under the guidance of Master Massimo Quarta (first prize at the Paganini international violin competition) and he won the two yearly auditions at " Giuseppe Verdi " Theatre in Trieste where he worked as co-principal first violin.

In 2001 he won the international competition for tutti violin at the National Academy of Santa Cecilia in Rome where he worked until 2013.

He chose to quit his symphonic orchestra seat in order to work as a freelancer in various chamber music ensembles like i Virtuosi Italiani, and symphonic orchestras like the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, sharing his music knowledge, experience and passion creating new opportunities of improvement especially for young musicians both in Italy and abroad.

In 2017 he won the public teaching selection for the position of violin teacher at the same "A.Peri" musical Institute where he studied, he has been teaching there since November 2017.


You can listen to me in the audio of tango  "Por una cabeza" and an arrangement of the soundtrack from the movie the "pirates of the caribbean"



My teaching adapts to students' needs after listening to at least one lesson. I love baroque music even if  I'm not specialized in it. The elements to be considered together with the student are:  age, talent, pieces performed and goals to be pursued. I indicatively follow the method of Italian conservatories. I teach the pieces required for competitions for aspiring professional violinists in symphony orchestras.

My Italian Conservatory/University : Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali (I studied there and I'm teaching there)
The orchestra where I played for 13 years and with which I recorded numerous CDs and toured all over the worlds : Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia
