And just in case you’ve been out of touch recently, you can find the first part of this interview here.




When did you become interested in music? What was the first album or single you ever purchased?

I started to play guitar when I was 11years old. I have studied with teachers as great as Donato Begotti, owner of the Rock Guitar Academy in Milan. My first album was Eric Clapton “unplugged”, then Smashing Pumpkins and today Queens of The Stone Age.

Are you in a band yourself, or have you been in a band in the past? Is there a clip on YouTube or elsewhere we could watch?

Luckily there’re not videos around of me playing with my old bands : ) One of my funnier moments was with a “rage against the machine” like band. We’re used to perform without t-shirt and covered by colors (body paint). Like the “blue man group”. Very funny!

Musical likes and dislikes? Favorite artists?

I love Muse, QOSTA, RED HOT, GORILLAZ and many others. I listen to lot of Italian music, too.

If you had to name the song that moves you the most, what would it be? Can you pinpoint the reason why?

Definitely is “sound of violence” by Cassius. It’s the one I use to joggin’. Do I need to say why? : )

Is there a song that – to you – captures the spirit of your startup and what you have set out to do? What would it be?

Please Please Please, Muse version. Is the song used in all the test and presentation to investors. It’s one of the most beautiful songs ever, in the best cover ever! Of course, is the song I’m used to play with Max.
