BIO

Valentina was born in Catania (Italy) surrounded by music. A family of musicians, her father a flute teacher and her mother an opera singer at Massimo V. Bellini theatre, infused her with an immeasurable love for music. At the age of 8 she started studying the violin with her aunt Aida and in the meantime joined the "Gaudeamus Igitur Concentus" children’s choir with which she took part in various operas (Boheme, Carmina Burana, Carmen, Pagliacci, etc.). Her love for Belcanto continues to grow. At 16 she amplified her musical repertoire, performing in numerous concerts of pop music, bossa nova and jazz, highlighting a clear, sweet voice, with great extension and perhaps a little retro that bewitched the public. A few years later, she decided to study opera singing, achieving her Diploma at the Catania Conservatory. In Italy she collaborated with high-level musicians and performed in various concerts. She met Jon Anderson, with whom she began to experiment with some songs as a duo as well as with Rick Wakeman right after, beginning a collaboration for the release of her first album "The rag doll" (still under development) written by Bruno Rubino (composer and drummer of Fiaba) and arranged by Wakeman himself. In 2012 from Bristol, Nick Pullin (of the Ilya group), wrote various songs ad hoc for her voice which evolved to the creation of a side project for another album. In 2013 she made her debut in Krakow, as a professional singer, in front of an audience of over 10,000 people, for the acrobatic show “Voalà”. In February 2014 she began her collaboration with the rock-medieval band Fiaba with which she performed in a mini tour with the concert "Rock Meets Opera", in Spain and in Italy, obtaining wide acclaim from audiences and critics. In November 2014, together with Fiaba, she shared the stage of the biggest theatre in Italy (in Milan), with PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI (PFM) and LE ORME, on the occasion of the 2014 Prog Exhibition. In July 2016 she performed in concert with Wakeman at the Greek Theater of Taormina and again in 2018 at the Gran Teatro of Elche (Spain)... to be continued
