One of the greatest pianists of recent decades; an angel who found himself on earth, only to return too soon to his heavenly home.

The Festival

Volpintesta, Andrea

Born in Cosenza, Volpintesta graduated the Ballet School of La Scala Theatre in Milan. After having competed in Varna and Rieti, and having met Victor Litvinov, he joined Aterballetto. In 1997, Elisabetta Terabust invited Volpintesta to perform at the La Scala, where he was given various roles as protagonist and primo ballerino. Volpintesta performed with great artists such as Carla Fracci, Sylvie Guillem and Alessandra Ferri. He was also made primo ballerino by the Teatro Municipal in Rio de Janeiro. On and off stage, he has partnered with étoile Sabina Brazzo, and together they established the “Jas Art Ballet”, a company and a project for choreography and ballet dedicated to young talents with the aim of promoting quality ballet training in Italy and abroad.
