"In the intertwined fabric of our lives and our friendship, I keep with deep gratitude the memory of Angelo Gilardino, a brilliant artist and scholar like few others in the history of the guitar.


In addition to his extraordinary talent, Angelo was a friend with whom I shared moments of inspiration, laughter and deep connection.


His music still resonates in my heart, a precious gift that accompanies me along the path of life.


Every note reminds me of his passionate spirit, his tireless dedication and the beauty he created through the guitar strings.


In his teaching and in his friendship, Angelo has given us not only musical knowledge, but above all an example of humanity and passion that I will always carry with me."
