Early Life Details and Career

Francesco’s passion for jazz, piano, and early music made him leave his native Italy in 1997.

The multi-instrumentalist currently performs on piano, accordion, organ,  harpsichord, cello banjo, various lutes, frame, and goblet drums. Likewise, he has also recorded for Warner, Virgin, Naive, and Alpha on several tracks.

Following his passion, Francesco’s primary source of earning used to be freelance music-making. Although this may be true, his net worth is yet to be calculated as of 2021.
