Born in Conegliano (Italy) in 1997, Paolo Tagliamento completed his violin studies and graduated

from the Conservatory G.Verdiof Milan at the age of 15 with full mark , laude, and Honors. In September 2015, he won the 34th International Violin Competition Premio Rodolfo Lipizer, becoming the first and only Italian winner in the history of the competition since1982.

During the 2014/2015 academic year, he studied with the famous Italian violinist M. Salvatore Accardo at The Accademia Walter Staufferin Cremona,Italy. He has collaborated with many orchestras, including the Moscow Soloists Chamber Orchestra under the baton of M.Yuri Bashmet.

In 2013, he met the world-renowned pedagogue, Ana Chumachenco, who brought him to Madrid to study At the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía, with a scholarship kindly offered by Mr. John Elkann (FIAT). He received the 2015/2016 award for the most outstanding string quartet of Prof. Heime Müller's class and the 2016/2017 award for the most outstanding student of Prof. Ana Chumachenco's class. He was presented with both awards by Her Royal Highness Queen Sofía.

Currently, he continues his musical studies with Prof. Ana Chumachenco at the Hoch Schule für Musik und Theater in Munich. Moreover he has the big privilege and honour to be deeply appreciated and supported by the great Italian violinist Uto Ughi.

He plays the Pietro Rogeri 1701, known as the"Milanollo", once also played by David Oistrakh.


After a number of meetings with Andres Segovia, Massimo Scattolin began his concert career as a soloist, since developing his chamber music and orchestral activities to include some of the best-known concertos for guitar and orchestra. Composers such as Andrea Morricone, Astor Piazzolla and Violet Archer have written concertos for him.

Massimo thus rose to the attention of European, Asian, North and South American and Australian audiences and has been described by critics as being one of the best guitarists of our times. He has worked with the main European television networks, as well as with great theatre actors such as Cucciolla, Pagliai and Gassman. He regularly takes part in international festivals and is the first Italian guitarist to have held master classes at the “Mozarteum” in Salzburg.

For the last few years Massimo Scattolin has been increasingly involved in composing works, first for solo guitar, and lately for symphony orchestra.

He has released more than 45 recordings, with orchestra, as soloist and in collaboration with musicians such as the violinists Giuliano Carmignola, Domenico Nordio and Franco Mezzena, the cellists Patick Demenga, Arturo Bonucci and Julius Berger, the flautist Roberto Fabbriciani, the Amati and the Aron quartets, the pianist Massimiliano Damerini, the guitarists Carlos Bonell and Andrea Vettoretti, the tenor Francesco Grollo, the soprano Stefania Bellamio, the percussionist Tullio De Piscopo and the famous group from Cuba “Buena Vista Social Club”.

Massimo plays a “lattice braced” guitar, made by Enzo Guido, with Dogal “Maestrale” strings.

Music is the real universal language because it is able to feed the most varied of human sensations, enhancing their purest and most noble essence. Everyone is a musician, both when they compose a symphony and when they transform the joy of a moment into song, or even when they get moved and cry merely by listening to a piece. (Massimo Scattolin)
