Artistically, Paolo grew up in the 1980s when he started playing in the roman music scene.
He turned professional as a composer and producer of theme songs, advertisement jingles and background music for RAI.
With his brother Andrea, he started arranging for Mietta, Bungaro and Flavia Fortunato. His professional turning point came with Gianni Morandi, with whom Paolo and Andrea started an intense collaboration, beginning with a world tour. Paolo has sung, played both the guitar and the keyboards, and programmed shows for more than 280 gigs, treading the boards at the Theatre Palace in Broadway and the Maple Leaf Garden in Toronto, amongst others. He then started writing several songs for Morandi himself (“Giovane amante mia” and “La regina dell’ultimo tango”, co-written with B. Antonacci), also arranging the album “30 volte Morandi”.
He also collaborated with Fabrizio Frizzi, with Mietta and with the popular composer Bruno Zambrini, with whom he arranged the soundtrack of Boldi-De Sica’s Christmas movie series.
He took part in Sanremo, once as a vocalist and once as writer/arranger of the song “Come il sole” by Percentonetto.
He has written songs for Barbara Cola, Alina, Marco Adami, and Giulia. As a writer, he has sold more than 1.000.000 copies.
He has written and produced dance songs, and sold their licenses all over the world. Always together with his brother Andrea, he founded the record company APbeat. Currently he figures in the dance charts with a remake of the song "La Dolce Vita" which uses the prestigious collaboration of Bob Sinclair.
