I move my first steps as a trumpeter, getting a classical trumpet degree in 2015 in the G. Verdi Conservatory of Milan, but at the same time I began to study composition and continued as a composer, getting my Bachelor Degree in 2021, always in Milan. A brief period of studying lyric singing (3 years) gave me a clear perception of the problematic issue of writing for voice today, while the interest in the Jazz music as trumpeter gave me a knowledge of extended harmony.

Actually, I'm attending the composition Master at G. Verdi Conservatory in the class of Gabriele Manca, but at the same time I’m taking part to a lot of professional experience, as IEMA 2021, DYCE 2022, Divertimento Ensemble workshop on prepared piano 2022, Rondò 2022, reMusik.org 2022, Novalis Concept 2022 (forthcoming), Mixtur Festival 2022 (forthcoming), INT-ACT Festival and TMAO 2022 (forthcoming), , Festival del Melologo di Como (forthcoming), Festival 5 Giornate di Milano (forthcoming), Rondò 2023 (forthcoming), Salvatore Sciarrino Composition Masterclass with mdi ensemble (12/2021), Barcelona Modern Ensemble 2021, Workshop with Francesco Dillon (2021), with Michele Marco Rossi(2022), album release commissioned by with Daniel Kientzy (2022), Egidio Carella composition Prize (2021), Giuseppe Cantone I prize (2021) and a lot of masterclasses held by Francesco Filidei, Oscar Bianchi, Dmitri Kourliandski, Francesca Verunelli, Unsuk Chin, Marco Stroppa, Klaus Lang, Alberto Posadas, George Benjamin, Vladimir Tarnopolski, David Nunez and many others.


Recently I’m leading research on the concept of action polyphony and texture sound: on the simultaneity of instrumental actions in a single instrument, which originates the texture-sound, in which a complex sound reveals itself as a multiplicity of states in relation to each other. Understood in this way sound becomes an unstable. I’m deeply interested to build an efficient syntax with a strong irrational and improvvisative component.

My music has been performed in Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Usa, Russia and Croatia by IEMA Ensemble, Divertimento Ensemble, Barcelona Modern Ensemble, Daniel Kientzy, Francesco Dillon, Synchronos Ensemble, Vacuum Quartet, Glass Clouds Ensemble and many others. Next projects include a septet for INT-ACT Festival and TMAO 2022, a saxophone duo for Edizioni Sconfinarte with score and album publishing, a new solo instrument piece commissioned by DYCE 2022 and a new piece for Glass Clouds Ensemble.
