I know well my limitations, but I never put any to my dreams

Luca Francioso, guitarrist, composer and writer, was born in Reggio Calabria (in the South of Italy) on 19 May, 1976.

He began studying classic guitar in 1987 with Giuseppe Alati. He approached the fingerstyle tecnique in 1996 and perfected it in 1997 with Franco Morone, a guitar player. He started writing his first short stories in 1991.

He has shared the stage with numerous international artists and has participated in the most important Italian guitar festivals.
