A classically-trained musician, he started singing as a child (his first recording dates back to 1968) and in 1980 he formed Elio e le Storie Tese with a bunch of schoolmates, naming himself after the first song he’d written. It would take another decade for the band to record their debut album, but in the meantime they’d built a solid live reputation and attained cult status.
Elio has a diploma in transverse flute, has played soccer and baseball on a professional level, and in 2002 he finally obtained his long-delayed degree in Electronic Engineering.
In recent years Elio has developed a parallel solo career, venturing in the world of opera and contemporary classical music. He’s also published a collection of fables in the style of Phaedrus.
