"Gianpiero begeisterte mich durch seine Fähigkeit, die eigene Kreativität und Lust am Experimentieren heraus zu locken. Er besitzt tiefgehendes technisches Wissen, welches er präzise und für logisch nachvollziehbar erläutern kann. So sind seine Erklärungen, verwendeten Bilder und Übungen mir selbst nach langer Zeit bewusst und präsent." - L. Wiegand

Gianpiero was only 12 when his father (engineer, martial art teacher and tango lover) involved him in a free project for youngster to approach tango.

He fell in love with tango during his first trip to Buenos Aires when he was only 15 and since then he’s been studying with all the major Maestros.

Last but not the least, with Maria Filali, with whom he created a flourishing dialogue and a refined lasting project, which has been internationally acclaimed.
