I was born in Cagliari, Sardinia, in 1992.
At the age of 7 yo I received a toy keyboard for Christmas and I started to play as self-taught.
I loved to play the piano and I was encouraged by the whole family.
At the age of 13 I moved to Milan, I started to attend the high school and, two years later, I discovered the music lab.
It was such a punk version of School of Rock, held by the experimental musician Roberto Zanisi, and I wanted to be part of it, but there was already a pianist. Roberto asked me if I wanted to try with the bass and I said yes.
Music’s always been an important part of my life, but that was the moment I became obsessed. I played all day with an old Washburn baritone deprived of the first two strings because I didn’t have a real bass, ’til I convinced my mom to buy one (it was an Ibanez BTB 200 ex demo and I loved it).
This was the first step of a path that led me to my first band and the decision to study the electric bass in a private school in Milan called CPM (Centro Professione Musica – Profession Music Center). For four years I attended the school two days a week and for the rest of the time I worked to pay it.
During that time I had the opportunity to study with great musicians, especially Siro Burchiani and Dino D’Autorio, who taught me everything I know about the bass.
I graduated in 2015, the year I started being a busker.
Nel frattempo milita in una band rock/metal, gli Avalanche Project, nella quale contribuisce attivamente alla stesura dei brani. Sarà proprio lo scioglimento della band, insieme al termine della scuola, dove prende il diploma nel 2015, a farle intraprendere la via del basso solista.
In 2016 I started collaborating with Elixir Strings, in 2017 with Cort Guitars and in 2018 with Mono Creators.
Since 2017 I’ve been part of the Bass Players United team.
Since April 2017 to January 2019 I’ve been part of the Council of ASM (Artisti di Strada a Milano – Street Artist in Milan), an Association which collaborates with the City of Milan about busking regulation..
Since October 2018 I’m the bassist of La Morte Viene Dallo Spazio, a psych-space rock project very active both in Italy and Europe.
