Born in Castrovillari and raised in Villapiana, in 2011 he founded the Fini Dance Festival which awarded the most important exponents of dance and gave opportunities to young people thanks to the Summer School and the International Competition, in which scholarships were awarded for the major schools in the United States, Brazil, Spain, Romania, Albania, Japan.
Thanks to the Festival, work contracts were given to young people who now work in the most famous companies in the world such as Alessio Crognale (Martha Graham Dance Company) Antonio Cangiano (Nai Ni Chen New York) Jessica Russo (Carabdanza Madrid) and Mary Jo Panacciulli as choreographerfor the Staten Island Ballet.
Fini Dance is supported by the Marcobaleno association (which annually donates airline tickets for New York winners) and the Dancing Angel Foundation (which donates two 100% scholarships for two American dancers for the Villapiana festival).
