Welcome to my World !

I was born in a small city called Erba situated in the north of Italy on February 22nd, 1974 and I start to play guitar at age 14.

I take my first lessons with the schoolmaster Roberto Riva (a very well known flamenco Italian guitarist). After this great experience I go ahead as autodidact for a few years. 

In 1992 began my rock guitar studies at the AMM in Milan with the teacher Thierry Zins.  After this period another long autodidactic parenthesis follows and this leads me to approach the study of jazz guitar, thanks also to the teacher Maurizio Aliffi and, later, also with Pietro La Pietra.

From 1998 to 2000 I start my teaching career at C.M.C school in Canzo (Como). From 2000 to 2007 I collaborate with the B.M.B Music school in Cantù (Como).

In 2002 I begin my collaboration with Jam for Live Sound and Union, two of the most important entertainment agencies of the cover bands Italian circuit. Therefore, in the following years, I work with many different bands (Matrix Black Sisters, Blaze, Mojo Filters, MTLive) playing in the best clubs and animating many events throughout all around the Italian territory. From 2013 to 2016, I work as the official guitarist of the cover band “Kaos Band” and “Mascalzoni Latini”.

From 2007 to 2014 I assume the position of chairman, director and guitar teacher at Officine Musicali school in Merone (Como).

Since  2014, I’m also working as a guitar teacher at the association Futuro Musica in Albese con Cassano (Como).

In 2014 also my passion for figurative arts grows: the EGO74 World was born this way…the ever-present protagonist, is a cute little man that is always in motion  and that represents my real being.

This world is represented in works that I realize using many techniques, experimenting different materials, and with thousand combinations of colors and assemblies … sometimes also very unpredictable!
