Born in Milan, I moved first to Ragusa and then to Catania. I started to get interested in guitar playing when I was just a child, since one of my uncles was a guitarist. I started to play when I was 12, first by myself (with the help of my uncle), then alternating periods of study with various teachers (Maurizio Diara, Andrea Quartarone, Fabrizio Licciardello) to moments of “pause” in which I devoted myself only to musical activity itself. When I was 15 I founded my first band, called “Steel”, a cover band which used to play songs by Metallica and Megadeth. This project had been going on (between ups and down) for about 7 years, until I moved to Catania to begin studying modern guitar. I carried on with some small project together with other musicians until (October 2010) I was contacted by Riccardo, who asked me to join Epistheme. From that moment on, they became my main band.

Cibo/drink:
Pizza, le lasagne della mamma, succo di frutta alla pera (minimo 70%!), vino rosso, whisky

Mi piace:
I sentimenti veri e puri, non importa se positivi oppure negativi

Odio:
L’ipocrisia, la falsità, il materialismo, la superficialità e tante altre cose

Hobby e interessi:
Videogiochi, cinema, i romanzi fantasy, thriller e horror, le arti marziali e la difesa personale

Ipse dixit:
Musica e arti marziali condividono lo stesso scopo: il raggiungimento di uno stato di coscienza superiore – Nameless (Hero)

Nato a Milano, trapiantato prima nel ragusano e infine a Catania, comincio ad interessarmi alla chitarra da piccolo, avendo uno zio chitarrista. Intorno ai 12 anni comincio a suonare, prima da autodidatta (sotto la guida del suddetto zio), poi alternando momenti di studio con vari maestri (Maurizio Diara, Andrea Quartarone, Fabrizio Licciardello) a momenti di “pausa” in cui mi dedico solo all’attività musicale vera e propria. A 15 anni fondo il gruppo “Steel”, cover band con repertorio costituito principalmente da brani di Metallica e Megadeth. Il progetto va avanti fra alti e bassi per 7 anni circa, fino a quando mi trasferisco a Catania e riprendo gli studi di chitarra moderna. Porto avanti qualche piccolo progetto con altri amici musicisti, fin quando, nell’ottobre del 2010, vengo contattato da Riccardo per entrare negli Epistheme, che da quel momento in poi diventano la mia band principale.
