“I was born next to a rail crossing, fascinated by the fast passing of the night trains which, like bright comets, whistled their long and far escape. I’ve loved vinyl since the years it seemed destined to disappear and still today I have a collection of over 1500 records steadily increasing.
I love all kind of music, I like to close my eyes and spend time in listening it.
Literature has absorbed the years of the earliest youth; I was completely captured by the Russian classics and then by Kafka and Pessoa and Saramago. My family educated and protected in me the love for Beauty, the respect for the Art, the care for the other. Today I live in an unstable equilibrium between music and theater … For musicians, I am mostly an actor who also knows how to compose and play. For the actors, a musician who can also act. Elusive by nature to classifications I pursue the freedom to be myself, loving life with great passion … “
