Frontiere is a meditative piece with dense instrumental colors, sometimes dark, sometimes pleasantly bright.
It tries to symbolize, with its cyclical form, a journey through thematic ideas that, from simple filler or secondary counterpoint, become protagonists and reveal their hidden potential as if, coming out of nowhere, they succeed in crossing a border (frontiera) which allows them to live in their own light.
Then the piece ends as it started, as if, after having explored new territories, desires to return to its own origins, where it all began.

The concert piece was composed for the First National Composition Competition for Wind Orchestra Palatucci in 2010, obtaining the second prize (first prize not awarded). The composition is inspired by the analogy perceived between the “salvation”, understood in a laical way, of the myth of Orpheus – who with his music corrupts the god of the underworld to bring his beloved back to life – and the story of the Chief of Police of city of Fiume who allowed the salvation of a multitude of Jews destined to suffer the murderous Nazi fury. Many instruments stand out as solists and in their extreme registers.

Concert for alto saxophone, dedicated to Gabriele Francioli. In four movements: the first, with a double theme, the soloist, after the introductive cadence, “converses” with the band, by alternating musical phrases; the second is a tango, built on a rhythmic element of the previous movement; the third, the slow movement of the piece, in which the saxophone gradually gains the upper hand, subsequently becoming the undisputed protagonist in the finale “Blues”, which also includes a section of improvisation.
