ALL MY EXPERIENCE IN YOUR MUSIC!
I'm a session guitarist working in different music areas: TV shows ("STAR ACADEMY" RAI2, "I MIGLIORI ANNI" RAI1) , Musical and rock operas tours ("MAMMA MIA!", "JERSEY BOYS", "SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER", "CAPTAIN KID", EXCALIBUR"), pop tours (Monodia, Alan Simon, Fausto Leali & Marcella Bella), studio recordings (i've recorded guitars for over 30 albums. Roby Facchinetti & Riccardo Fogli, Alan Simon, Alan Stivell, James Wood, Gianni Ansaldi are some artists i worked for).

I've also recorded lots of guitar tracks for a UK Company who sell high quality backing tracks all over the world and i learned a lot from their request of "carbon copy" tracks of guitarist like The Edge, Nile Rodgers, Steve Cropper, Johnny Buckland and many others.

I'm constantly working for a company who produce background music for television recording dozens of songs from swing-manouche to hard-rock, peruvian music, country, bossa novas, hawaiian songs and many more.

Thanks to these important experiences i could expand my knowledge of styles, guitar sounds and versatility: it's a pleasure share my know-how with creators.
