Flavio  completed a Bachelor of Piano Performance with Matteo Napoli at the Conservatory "G.Martucci" in Salerno in 2007. In 2012 he completed a Master in Piano Performance at the University of Auckland with first class honours under the guidance of pianist Stephen De Pledge. He is absolute winner of the Northland Society Piano Competition in 2008 as well as winner of the Llewelyn Piano Competition in both 2011 and 2012.

Flavio has performed many recitals  in New Zealand, both as a soloist and in different duos. He has played in various festivals including the Venice Biennale (2011) for the exhibition and

installation of the New Zealand pavilion, "Lamezia Festival" (2013 and 2014), "Pianino Festival" (Mallorca), "Maggiociondolo Festival" (Alessandria) and given performances in Salerno, Rome, Barcelona and in many different cities in New Zealand. Lately he performed Rachmaninoff Concerto No.2 with the Orchestra Filarmonica of Calabria in Italy (see our special showing of the film "Crossing Rachmaninov" on 11th June 2017) and again with the Orchestra of CalArts in Los Angeles at the beginning of 2015. Alongside his solo repertoire he is keeping a busy collaboration with other internationally renowned musicians in NZ and overseas.
