I was born in 1981 in Milan.
I graduated in philosophy of science and sociology in Milan under the guidance of Giulio Giorello and Marina Calloni and in the meantime I studied violin privately with Maurizio Schiavo, Elena Ponzoni and Laura Riccardi.
I've obtained my Phd at the IUAV University of Venice with a thesis entitled "Musical Participation Policies".
I'm one of the fouder of AIMA - Associazione Italiana Musicisti Amatori (www.aimamusic.it), today the largest network of amateur musicians in Italy.
About two years ago I also started to play the viola.
