I am son of musician.
My father, clarinettist with a period as clarinetist in Teatro alla Scala di Milano, from childhood bring me in the study of clarinet ( which I play also now) and some lessons of piano.
At 18 years old I begin composing .
I studied composition by myself.
Anyway I attended summer courses in Accademia Chigiana in Siena with Donatoni ( 1996) and attended “progetto toys “ in Modena with Adriano Guarnieri and Alvise Vidolin.
Form 2004 I have close relation with ucranian musical establishment, particularly with one of the best violinist , Ostap Shutko, who performed most of my works in ucraine contemporary musical festivals. I also met two of most famous ucranian composers, Stankovich and Sherbakov, this one important organizer of musical events in Kiev
I have an other important musical collaboration with cellist Nicola Deletaille, one of the few to have and play a special Arpeggione.
More Recently I begun a collaboration with the Istambul based guitarist Tolgahan Cogulu, who has invented a special guitar with movable frets.
From December 2009 I am member of centro musica contemporanea.
My musical research is focused on microtonal music, firstly addressed to western instruments but now also towards new instruments created for microtonal music and towards eastern instruments.
I have important collaboration with painters and poets, Italians and of Zurich area.
I also think of myself as a transdisciplinary artist, in the sense that I aim to compose works where more forms of arts are represented, each one with its part in the composition
On 6 april 2011, in kiev, national musica academy of Ucraine, during the internation festival of contemporary music, I had a whole concert all dedicated to my figure of composer, and here I presented Delta, work for poetry, music and painting, with live painting performing and music, painter Rosanna Pressato

This project will have a first step where Italian and foreign composers ( from Argentina, Japan, Ucraine-which country I am responsible of) will create a music inspired on these videos. These multimedia works will be performed in premiere festivals of respective countries. As referring to Italia-.ucraine project , Italian performing will take place in 2012 during Milan festival 5 giornate, and ucraine performing will take place in Kiev international contemporary music festival, October 2012. the main ucraine composer involved in this project will be Igor Shcherbakov , president if ucraine composers society and one of the most representative living composers in Ucraine. Also it is in aime to perform all national works in expo 2015 .
