His discovery of acoustic sonorities dates to his first encounter with Peppino D’Agostino in 2001, but it was the music of Walter Lupi which really hit home. The desire to explore this new acoustic dimension of the guitar led him to start composing original pieces, managing in this way to express the most intimate side of his musical universe. Luciano’s music is evocative, emotional and brimming with nuances almost as if these were short soundtracks for a dream-like flow of images. The melody, always to the forefront, becomes a narrator’s voice recounting ageless stories. In 2009, after moving to Florence, he came into contact with an organization that is one of a kind: the Folk Club Six Bars Jail, a group of connoisseurs of fingerstyle guitar who promote this musical genre above all by organizing concerts, playing host to top names from all over the world.
The chance to get to know and listen live to artists of the calibre of John Renbourn, Chris Proctor, Muriel Anderson, John Doan, Beppe Gambetta, etc. became fundamental in his musical education. In May 2010 he was a guest of Fingerpicking.net at the Acoustic Guitar Meeting in Sarzana, while in July he was on the bill of the first edition of the Guitar Wine Festival at Borgo Priolo (Pavia). The great following that his music attracted on Internet persuaded him to produce the promotional CD, “Raccontami di Te”, released in January 2011, and containing seven of the most representative pieces he has written.
