Born in 1975, debuts as “enfant prodige” at the age of 13 in the communal hall of his city playing three Sonatas by Clementi, the “Rage over the lost penny” op. 129 by Beethoven and “La campanella” from the 6 Great Studies on Paganini by Liszt, obtaining soon a resounding approval from the audience and the critics for his impressing technical and interpretative capacities.

After he had awarded the Diploma at the only age of 20 with the maximum score, he starts postgraduate courses first with the great M° Aldo Ciccolini and then with Marcella Crudeli at the “Cortot” Academy in Paris. Winner of about fifty national and international competitions, he claims critics attention with the significant Prize for the Technique assigned by “Movimento Cavalieri per l’Europa” during the Vidusso Competition in Milano. His concert activity is very intense (over 400 concerts held in Italy, Garmany, Switzerland, Turkey, Romania, Spain etc. as a soloist and with orchestras like the Bacau Philarmonic, the Istanbul Deylet Symphony Orchestra, the “Tchaikovsky” Symphony Orchestra of Udmurtia, the “Costantinescu” Symphony Orchestra of Plojesti, ICO Foundation of Lecce etc.) and the next engagements will bring him in Romania, Turkey, Spain, Bulgaria, Texas, Russia and in the Carnegie Hall of New York.

Well known even as a young and budding teacher, he includes between his numerous pupils some of the winners of the most prestigious pianistic international prizes like the Premio Nazionale di Venezia, Maria Canals of Barcellona, Stancic of Zagabria, Jaen in Spain, Ciudad in Portugal, Maria Callas in Athens, the Tiblisi in Georgia, Chopin of Rome etc. His repertoire is huge and sweeps between barocco and late romanticism, especially preferring Russian authors usually not much performed. His pianism stands out for an efficient technical resolution combined with a great musical and interpretative versatility and, today, he results to be the only interpreter in the world of the mastodontic Piano Concerto op. 4 by S. M. Lyapunov. He regularly holds Courses and Masterclasses in Italy (European Academy of Music in Como, “Tchaikowsky” Academy of Catanzaro) and out of Italy ( International Piano Academy of Zagabria – Croatia). Furthermore, he keeps a constant and regoular collaboration with some of the world’s greatest Masters as Sergio Perticaroli, Marcello Abbado, Franco Scala, Marcella Crudeli, Leonid Margarius etc. Currently, he teaches at the International Piano Academy “Mendelssohn” in Taurisano (Le), of which he is director. He’s Artistic Director of Gran Premio Internazionale “Mendelssohn Cup” of Taurisano (Le) and of the Mendelssohn International Festival arrived at the 14th edition. Since 2010, in addition, he is Artistic Director of International Piano Competition “F. Liszt” in Grottammare (AP).

Very often he is in the Jury in many national and international competitions like the Città di Cantù, Valsesia - Musica di Varallo (Vc), “Compositores de Espana” of Madrid, “Campillos” of Malaga, "Pecar" of Gorizia, Città of Marsala, “F. Liszt” of Grottammare (Ap), "Rovere d'Oro" of Imperia, "Premio Chopin" of Roma, Premio Rospigliosi of Lamporecchio (Pt), "C. Togni" of Brescia, Bach of Sestri Levante, Val Tidone etc.

They said about him:

“….he impresses for the clearness with which he overcomes every pianistic asperità without never loosing the line of the musical texture…”
(Vincenzo Balzani)
“……after his concert, just one word: unforgettable!”
(Marcello Abbado)
“….he has an amazing technique and a very beautiful sound…..he reminds me Magaloff…”
(Franco Scala)
“…..fantastic pianist, extraordinary hands……certainly, he’s one of the most gifted pianists of his generation….”
(Aldo Ciccolini)
“…..with inflexible clearness, the interpreter put in evidence his technical gifts made by a solid sound, plump cantabile, clear and fluid articulation, writing ability and, once again, taste for that virtuosity which dominated the evening…..
