The Rome Diocese's choir was born exactly in this way, spontaneously, as it is a group of no professional young people, who wants to follow together a spiritual and cultural path. The Rome Diocese’s Orchestra was then born to accompany the choir's musical activity. In 1991 he began his cooperation with RAI R.T.I. on an international project called “Bibbia” (Bible), both as biblical consultant and composer of the soundtracks of the first five films. He got two nominations for the Cable Ace Award in USA in 1994 for “Abramo” and “Giacobbe”, and he won this award in 1995 for “Giuseppe”. His production of liturgical songs is very wide: over a 120 have been published, and loads of them are known both in Italy and abroad. He composed and played for Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI many oratories. He wrote many symphonic and chamber-music compositions, and he took part in many musical festivals with his orchestra and his two choirs. He always accompanies the Rome Diocese's choir and orchestra to the most important television representations, such as those live concerts from the Vatican, or those in occasion of the most important events broadcast worldwide.
He was also the responsible for the Jubilean events during the Great Jubilee of the year 2000, such as the International Eucharistic Convention, the Youth World Day and the Jubilee of the Families.
