I had the great pleasure of doing an interview with Andrea after I listened to his newest CD L"anacoreta and Forme d'arte. People who don't know him and his music, check him out!
He's is one of the few people I know who can play in any style on the highest level and with great taste. It's the same guy who played the trumpet solos in Morricone's music. How many principal players do you know who can play lead, jazz/latin/pop?
I'll publish the interview on my site after it's published in after brassmagazine called the Sonic in a few months. He has very interesting things to say IMO.
Summit records sells his cds btw. Italy has more fine trumpetplayers like Fabrizio Bosso and Paolo Fresu. All worth checking out.
