Italian bassist, double bassist and arranger. Graduated from Conservatorio E. Dall’Abaco (Verona, Italy) in 2000.

At a very young age, he started working with Paolo Belli’s big band as bassist and arranger in important Italian TV shows: “Ballando con le stelle” (the Italian Dancing with the stars), “Telethon”, “Torno Sabato”.

As his career progressed, he started touring with some of Italy’s most renowned artists: Mario Biondi, Elio e le Storie Tese, Antonella Ruggiero and Paolo Belli, among others.

His extraordinary versatility allowed him to gain a foothold as an appreciated and requested musician for sessions; while he simultaneously became a reference in the contemporary jazz- fusion-progressive international scene as a virtuoso on the electric bass.

A creative and tireless musician, Federico is constantly switching among recording studios, international festivals, TV shows and international music trade events.
