In 2012 Federico was part of the italian singer Marco Mengoni's band during his tour in all national theaters..
At the moment he lives and works in Berlin.
Federico tells his Sequoia saxophones:
The Sequoia Soprano and Alto Lemon (Unlacquered) are instruments whose sound personality and extreme ductility have always helped me searching for the inspiration. It's a rare and at the same time a happy example how modern saxophones, though respecting the tradition, are able to bravely and humbly come out from the choir of a constant growing and discouraging market ratification.
