I contacted Stefano via social because I writed two songs and I needed to realize the sound. And in few days, he realized a great job. He's so empathic and he's absolutely amazing.
I was really satisfied to collaborate with Stefano. He is very talented and it's clear that he loves his job! Music is his passion and he shows this through his professional way to be. He is really interested in understanding what I wanted to express by my music. But first, he gave me the key to organise my idea about my project and make it real! It's a rare quality and I appreciated him also for that! He's a great musician with great creativity and deep empathy. I recommend him to everyone who wants to come true his draft in a fantastic masterpiece for quality, originality and effect!
It has been a beautiful surprise to collaborate with Stefano: he is very kind and he really tries to get to know you, not only about your music taste, but about your own persona. He has the incredible gift to read your mind and mold your thoughts and feelings into music.
This means that he truly listens to you.
I am so lucky, I could not ask for any better musician and friend to collaborate with!
Ho lavorato e continuo a collaborare con Stefano per molti motivi. Primo tra tutti per le sue caratteriali attitudini, è gentile, educato, pazientoso, disponibile. A queste caratteristiche si aggiungono la professionalità, le idee innovative e quel tatto musicale che guarda avanti. Serietà ed umanità fanno di Stefano il Top dei producer in zona.
Ho ottenuto un ottima base per un mio pezzo.
Anche se distanti geograficamente abbiamo raggiunto il risultato grazie alla sua professionalità e disponibilità 💪

A: I was very proud to collaborate in 2018-2019 for Hooded Man (Smilax Publishing) - Christian Palladino (Mediaset Tv Shows) - Pietro Summa (Tv Showman/Vj for Black Coffee) because for me it was very important... I was proud to collaborate with theC - Mirco - Elisa - Polifonica Vox - Licia - Maria Frasca - Luciano Doati also. We worked together for a lot of projects.. I think that there is particular empathy with these artists, may because i like very much their genre and because they are kind and love music like me.. I was a music inspirational-guide for more of them.. i helped them to transform their feelings in music, and i'm very happy for this..:-)
