He then continued his studies with Fisk, Barrueco, Brouwer, Ghiglia and Diaz. In 1990 he moved to Paris to study with Alberto Ponce at the Ecole Normale de Musique, where he gained the "Diplom Superieur d'Execution"; in 1992 he became Ponce's teaching assistant at the Ecole Nationale de Musique de Argenteuil. In 1997 he began teaching guitar at the Minipolifonici Music School of Trento. He has played in Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland and the U.S. and on Italian national television, both as a soloist and in chamber groups.
