I am very proud of having won the "Paganini Competition" and I think, this Competition will mean a lot for my career. I mean, it will bring many changes for me, because I will have to show my worth on stage. I had the possibility to play the "Cannone"; it was the most incredible experience in my whole life and the violin is totally fantastic!
I also performed in front of a children's audience in a school in Arenzano; I had a great time there with them, they are so powerful and full of energy!
I have wonderful memories of Genoa and I would like to thank some of the people who helped me during the Competition: the Carlo Felice Orchestra's concertmaster Stefano Pagliani, who gave me his E-string because my string almost broke! I would also like to thank my pianist during the Competition, Giovanni Casella, it was very nice to play with him! And of course the audience of Genoa!
