    Event description


    The Ciampa-Piccotti Duo, comprising Erica Piccotti on cello and Gian Marco Ciampa on classical guitar, presents a stunning blend of talent and passion. Erica, a prodigy born in 1999 in Rome, graduated summa cum laude from the Santa Cecilia Conservatory of Music at just 14 and currently hones her skills at the Kronberg Academy under Frans Helmerson. Her accolades include top prizes at the Johannes Brahms and Janigro International competitions, the “Landgraf von Hessen Preis,” and she was named the “Young Concert Artist of the year” by ICMA in 2020. Erica has also been honored with the Certificate of Honor “Alfieri della Repubblica” by Italian President Giorgio Napolitano and has a debut CD with Warner Classic.

    Gian Marco, also a Roman native, graduated with highest honors from the “Santa Cecilia” Conservatory. His international acclaim stems from over 40 awards, including the Melbourne and Tokyo International Guitar Competitions. Known for bridging classical music with modern audiences, he delivered a TEDxTalk at TEDxLUISS, titled “Who says classical music is only for old people?” and was the sole classical artist at the 2015 U.S.A. Pavilion during EXPO MILANO. His performances have been recognized in prestigious media outlets, and he’s also a respected professor, giving masterclasses and concerts worldwide.

    Together, the Ciampa-Piccotti Duo creates an electrifying atmosphere, merging their individual accomplishments and styles into a harmonious and dynamic concert experience.
