Giorgio Francesco Dalla Villa
- MUSICO M P O S E R
Born in Milan, I graduated in composition in 2017 with full marks at “Giuseppe Verdi” Conservatory of Milan in the class of M° Paolo Rimoldi. In the following year I attended the courses organized by the conservatory for teaching music and subsequently, between 2019 and 2020, I specialized in composition with M° Fabio Vacchi in his master courses at “Fiesole Music School”. I also studied piano at the Civic Music School of Milan with M° Eleonora Zullo.
Scientific interests led me to get the master degree in Plant Biotechnologies at Milan’s University “Degli Studi” in 2012, with full marks and honors.
Thanks to the interpretation of M° Massimo Signorini at the accordion and of M° Marco Vanni at sax, my piece "Requiem_File" will be recorded in December and released with Ema Vinci!
