international scene, Graziano Rampazzo, session musician who collaborated with several Italian singer-songwriters.

Afterwards he attended an exhaustive instrumental specialization course in Brescia, held by Alfredo Golino, an exceptional session man, worldly renowned (Mina, Eros Ramazzotti, Laura Pausini, Renato Zero, Samuele Bersani, Raf etc...)
Still now, he keeps on studying the instrument and getting refined, driven mostly by his desire to investigate the sound, the expression, and the technical freshness.

Among his experiences, there are various studio sessions as session musician, countless live shows in various clubs of North Italy.
