CareerEdit

He was born in Perugia and is a graduate of the Morlacchi Conservatory.[1] His teacher told him avoid playing jazz because it would damage his technique, so at home he learned jazz on the piano, playing along to his father's records.[2] In his teens he performed locally on piano.[2] He has been a member of the Rabih Abou-Khalil group.[1] In 2013, he performed with harpist Edmar Castañeda at festivals in France and at a choro event in Brazil.
