Thus, not only he worked in the typical environments of the show but he also started to sing in schools, churches, prisons, hospitals and in recovery communities, telling the experience of his troubled life and unhappy childhood injured by illness as well as the experiences that had been pushing him towards emptiness and darkness until a Light had come: the light of hope born by Faith. His testimonial is simple and lies in expressing, through music and words, the Love of Christ that can get to the heart of every man who desires to open out to Him. He has already produced several albums of songs and, after four years silence, he then issued with Edizioni Paoline ..Tempo di pace... It is a work rich in musicality along with strong matters where you also feel his desire of telling his own story and the story of the ways he has gone to come to Christ, source of endless Peace, and, along with that, the social disasters that are nowadays upsetting the earth, that are to fight against with true Love.
A proposal of songs full of commitment, born by real life and not just by tall talks; an impulse to live the evangelic message deeply inside and to embrace with strength the faith in God and in his providence to finally attain the long desired peace: peace among all men and peace in the heart of every man. One of the pieces making up the collection is ..Concerto a Sarajevo.., dedicated to the children who were victim of the wars and in particular to Mons. Tonino Bello on the occasion of the peace march held in Sarajevo together with the association ..Beati costruttori di Pace.. (Blessed fighting for peace).
