Nicola Piovani is a well-known pianist, composer, conductor and author of soundtracks. He has collaborated with some of the major directors of the Italian cinema, winning the Academy Award in 1999 for the soundtrack “Life is beautiful”.

He puts his vision and experience at the disposal of the corporate world underlining the similarities between the world of music and the dynamics of work in the company.

He collaborated with many Italian directors including Monicelli, Moretti, Tornatore, Giuseppe Bertolucci, the Taviani Brothers, Fellini and foreigners as Ben Von Verbong, Bernard Favre, Pal Gabor, Bigas Luna, Dusan Makavejes, John Irvin, Jos Stellng. Piovani has made also soundtracks for highly successful Italian television dramas.

If in early days the cinema occupied the main space of his work, over the years he has devoted himself more and more to theatrical music, to the point that the live show now takes up most of his time.

He is also active as a composer of songs (those for Fabrizio De André and for the actor Roberto Benigni) and chamber music.
