He has recently achieved a red belt level in Taekwondo. He is part Italian and Spanish and speaks three languages.

He created this path all by himself, by playing classical pieces of the icons as Beethoven and Mozart. At almost 7 years old, he started attending a music class where he began learning the craft. So far, he has enjoyed entertaining his family, daily, by playing the piano in the living room. He also takes part in school recitals when possible. He composes his own songs and can learn to play a melody in a very short time. Playing the piano is Alessandro’s passion and hopes to continue creating and making beautiful sounds for everyone to enjoy
