Davide Pancetti


1993, Modena. Composer, musicologist, artist.

Musicological training with a three-year degree at the “Department of Musicology and Cultural Heritage” of the University of Pavia, based in Cremona. Master’s degree at the “Department of Music and Theater Disciplines” at the University of Bologna.

I teach music theory, composition and analysis as well as mandolin, my primary instrument in various contexts (including Mutinae Plectri a.p.s. and Massimo Riva Music School).

I have always been involved in art, and its relations with philosophy and music.

I am interested in art as a thought, as a history and as an education.

-lectures and conferences

-study and research

artistic production (composition, paintings, and various)
