HOME TOWN: Treviso, Italy
Francesco grew up in Treviso (Italy) in a very musical family who introduced him at an early age to a lot of classical music. He started playing saxophone at the age of 13, but it wasn't until when he started playing guitar at the age of 19 that he became serious about music. Soon, Francesco realized that playing guitar and writing music was more than a passion and that it would become his job and life.
After only one year of intense studying and practicing, he started teaching privately and in several schools, but that was not enough. At the age of 23 he moved to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, where he graduated (Summa Cum Laude) as a guitar principal in only 3 years, with a major in Film Scoring. Francesco is currently part of a Metal band called Hiss of Atrocities that has been very active and played numerous shows in the Boston area. The band has now relocated to Los Angeles where it is working on a new record.
Francesco has also recorded three highly acclaimed demos with Hiss of Atrocities and three instrumental solo projects.
