Development and Institutional Relations
I worked for more than 20 years with leading figures on the Italian music scene in the 80s and 90s, including Lucio Dalla, and subsequently Luca Carboni, acting as his manager. I planned and helped stage tours with these singers in Italy and Europe, including the Carboni-Jovanotti tour of 1992. In 1998 I took my live music experience into another – related – professional field: large scale event organization. The Heineken Jamming Festival was my first big event. In 2008 I was one of the founders of Mismaonda where I coordinated major – often experimental – productions for clients like Mercedes, Sipra, and Nokia. 2012 saw the start of the innovative festival known as La Repubblica delle Idee, open public talks sponsored by the Italian daily newspaper La Repubblica.
