    I will gladly involve you in my circle that includes former classmates and students of mine who have become professors and administrators themselves, in Italy and across the US.
    NGU, the Conservatory of Padua, Boston University, the Greenville Symphony Orchestra, and the South Carolina musical community in general have been fertile ground to cultivate friendships that now spread far and wide.

  • My Story

    Among my musical partners are my wife Sherry (piano), our grown children Maria (piano) and Sam (violin), and my siblings Anna (soprano), Chiara (violin), and Alberto (cello). Music has been in our family for a very long time. Sherry is responsible for bringing me to Greenville after we met as piano students, and I am proud of my association with NGU and with the fantastic musical community of South Carolina.
