Son of art, he began studying the cello at the age of six. He studied with Antonio Janigro and in 1997 he won the First Prize at the "ROSTROPOVICH" Competition in Paris.

Among the composers who have created music dedicated to him, Giulio Castagnoli (Concerto for cello and double orchestra), Carlo Boccadoro (L'Astrolabio del mare, for cello and piano and Asa Nisi Masa, for cello, 2 horns and strings), Carlo Galante (Luna in Acquario, for cello and 10 instruments), Roberto Molinelli (Twin Legends, for cello and strings, Crystalligence, for solo cello and Iconogramma, for cello and orchestra) and Jorge Bosso (Valentina!
