Born in Udine (Italy) on May 24th 1994, I grew up in a musical environment and started taking music lessons at the age of 3, under the instruction of Giorgio Cozzutti. In 2003, keeping on taking theory and solfeggi rudiments, I started playing piano under Cozzutti’s mentorship, but ended up quitting 2 years later. After a while, almost randomly, in a music store, I discovered electric bass, falling in love with it immediately. My first bass teacher is Luciano Marangone. In 2009, I started playing classical and jazz upright bass joining the Conservatory in Udine with Franco Feruglio and Simone Serafini. Two years later I joined for the first time a real jazz band, ending up performing regularly.
Meanwhile, my influences have always been open to any style, and I have always tried to experience as many moods as possible taking part in funk/hip-hop, blues, pop, latin, progressive rock/metal, electronic or orchestral projects, beside jazz. In 2012, I had the chance to attended the yearly Summer Berklee Program, which takes place in Perugia (Italy) during the Umbria Jazz festival and I won a scholarship for the yearly Berklee Summer Camp. A year later I attended the Five-Week program at Berklee, Boston and got another scholarship that allowed me to enroll at Berklee College of Music in 2014 as an undergraduate student. In addition I have also been attending weekly classes held by Glauco Venier in Udine Conservatory and joined the jazz collective formed by the students of the jazz department. In my third semester at Berklee I auditioned for a cruise ship gig with Guille & The B. Band, a latin jazz quintet. We got hired by MSC Cruises Company and sent on board of the ship "MSC Divina" where I have been performing on board everyday for almost 5 months (Jan-May 2016), playing both upright bass and electric and doing some background vocals before coming back to Boston to pursue my studies.
Currently based in Brooklyn, I graduated Summa Cum Laude in May 2018 (performance major) under the guide of Fernando Huergo, James Genus, Whit Browne, Susan Hagen, Lincoln Goines and Michael Pope I also had the chance to attend clinics and individual classes with players such Gary Willis, Eddie Gomez, John Clayton, John Patitucci, Victor Wooten, Jeff Berlin, Alain Caron, Marco Panascia.
