Italian guitarist was just 17 when he became a member of Cervello. By the mid 70s, with brother Danilo of Ossana fame, he started fusion band Nova.

His production work since that time includes some of Italy's finest musicians, such as Zucchero, Elisa, PFM and Negramaro. His solo works are top-flight fusion records, highlighting both his songwriting and considerable guitar technique.
