Born in Rome in 1983, I spent my whole childhood studying to become a flautist.
After my harmony teacher more or less forced me, I started taking composition classes in 2003, and after one year I realized that composing was the art that represented me the most. Looking for a good teacher, I travelled around Italy and I stopped for three years in Milan to study with Alessandro Solbiati.

Since then, I have had inspiring discussions with many composers: I talked about notation with Mark André, about material with Franck Bedrossian, about form with Chaya Czernowin, and about silence with Steven Takasugi.
I am particularly interested in music as an existential, physical experience — music

should be seen as well as heard. This is one of the reasons why I sometimes prefer to talk about the choreography of the sound rather than about orchestration.
I lived and studied in Paris for five years at the CNSM de Paris, with Frédéric Durieux, from January 2013 I moved to Berlin where I was a one year guest of the Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD, and I am now finishing my PhD at Harvard University.
Current projects include new pieces for Accentus, Wilhem Latchoumia and the Ensemble Orchestral Contemporain, Ensembles 2e2m and CrossingLines as well as the artistic direction of the Bludenzer Tage zeitgemäßer Musik festival. I live between Berlin and Boston.
