Progressively introduced to the academic
world of music by the hand of Master Nino
Pellegrini, he started to learn jazz doublebass
at the private school Scuola di Musica "G.
Bonamici" in Pisa, in 2000. He simultaneously
worked with school combos lead by Andrea Pellegrini with monographic project on Mingus, Monk
and Parker. He took part into workshops for talented musicians with Italian doublebass players
Paolino Dalla Porta (Pisa, 2000) and Furio Di Castri (Terni, 2001). He took part into a special 2years
course oriented to the "Piano trio language" with pianist Enio Corsaro and drummer Roberto
Traverso. Masters Stefano Battaglia, Paolino Dalla Porta and Fabrizio Sferra taught the course. And
as a result of their trio's work over a year time, they were awarded the first prize First Pisa Jazz
Contest in 2002. Later that year, he followed the prestigious SIENAJAZZ Summer Workshops. He
increased his skills studying jazz doublebass with Master Pietro Leveratto, combo class and refined
ear training with Master Pietro Tonolo and theory and analysis with Stefano Zenni. In 2003 he was
granted a place for studies on jazz doublebass class at The Hague Conservatory, in the
Netherlands. In 2004 he switched to Brussels Conservatory where he studied for two years with Bart
De Nolf, Diederik Wissels, Jeroen Van Herzeele, among others.
His performances since 2002 have taken him to play in many jazz and nonjazz
clubs in Italy,
Belgium, France, Switzerland and Germany with various bands, all of which were rich in sound
diversity, techniques and repertoire; from the duo to the Big Band, from gipsy jazz to avantgarde,

quartet with which he's trying to
meet the jazz tradition with the innovation of purely improvised music.
