I do not remember exactly when and how I sang for the first time, I was very young, but immediately the voice became for me the sixth sense organ with which to interact with the outside world. Over time even a form of expression, practice, custom that has accompanied and punctuated my life, preferring jazz and in recent years the tango. The meeting with Arrigo Cappelletti was fundamental for my training. Being accompanied by him and Fausto Beccalossi made the difference and marked a "movement" that changed my way of thinking about singing. Every moment becomes with them creativity at maximum power, meditation, discovery, a flight to the top, where nothing is taken for granted or trivialized; A true poetic form where feelings and emotions follow one another like an endless "burst" ... I wanted to stop this intense experience and testify it in a CD with them, through songs dear to us, contaminating and mixing different genres where everything it's what it's like and it could be something else ... Thanks to Arrigo and Fausto for this experience that we will continue to offer live, since I wanted from the beginning the trio, with a character of "live performance" where improvisation and interplay between us play a decisive role . A huge thanks to Flavio Minardo, who with his guitar and his sensitivity has embellished this work by entering "on tiptoe". Thanks to Franco Finocchiaro for his words, his wise pen ... that .... "as he writes he does not write anyone". Another thanks to the Argentine artist Paola Davico for the portrait, to Alessia Oppizzi for the translations, to Enzo "Bassman" for the live photos. Thanks again to Gustavo Paglia for the arrangement of "Los Mareados".
Thanks to life.

After returning to Italy in March 2000, in addition to resuming the jazz repertoire, he formed with the guitarists Pierluigi Ferrari and Sergio Fabian Lavia a trio of Argentine music, proposing a music that embraces both the tango prima modo, and the music of the most representative of the heritage of Argentine folk music. With this trio with whom he recorded the CD "S" u "ono Latino", currently collaborates the singer and guitarist Martin Troncozo and the bandoneonist Daniel Pacitti.
