In 2012 he gives birth to the “Cosmic” project, together with his partner, with which he organises followed and involving parties characterised by musical research and visual arts . From this beginning they decide to give rise to an open air festival with an innovative ideology but and the same time very dangerous because is based in country which operates and acts with other dynamics. Their belief is to promote the music above all instead of the notoriousness of the artists. So the decision is to create a space for a crew of young,talented and emerging artists in all over Italy to give a clear message : “There is a lot of quality and new artists which have the right requirements in their home too”. Another ket point is to put the free entry in the festival because for them music is a precious asset which must be made by all, even thought is a difficult bet.
