Bio

After 25 years as a session guitarist and record producer, Alberto falls in love with finger style acoustic guitar and starts playing his arrangements both in Italy and abroad, from small clubs in New York City and London, to renown guitar festivals like Sarzana and Ferentino.  

His first fingerstyle record is released by legendary Stephan Grossman's guitar workshop label, together with an instructional DVD of his arrangements. The record will also be released in Italy and Europe by Fingerpicking.net

Alberto’s arrangement are personal, with a 50’s big band vibe, yet rooted in the style of the great Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel. He digs into complex arrangements of Italian and american classics, translating them on the guitar (Georgia on my mind, Volare, Tu vuo fa l’Americano), picking up clever harmonic movements from those great arrangers and composers and making them his own, on the six string.
He also write his own material, both fingerstyle instrumentals and as a singer songwriter .

He released 2 albums as a singer-songwriter, and the third has just been mixed by legendary engineer Bob Clearmountain (Springsteen, Rolling Stones, Bryan Adams).
