His Cenerentola by G. Rossini in Circuito Lirico Lombardo and at Fondazione Toscanini of Piacenza impressed many and elicited unanimous praise from the most important national magazines (“L’Opera” and “Classic Voice”).
In June 2011 he conducted La Traviata in Cagliari and Madama Butterfly at Carlo Felice in Genoa.

In the same Theater he conducted Carmen and Hansel und Gretel.
His performance at the opening of Festival Valle d'Itria in 2011 was widely acclaimed and his Rossini’s Aureliano in Palmira (with Franco Fagioli in the role of Arsaces) drew unanimous applause from the major Italian critics as did the Gianni di Parigi he conducted at Wexford Festival (October 2011).
