He started to take lessons in Febuary 1991 from the Teramano maestro Franco Ruggieri and during the following summer, after daily rehearsing and a strong will, his first results in local competitions arrived.

In 1992 he won his first local competition but 1993 was the year that marks his career.

In July of '93, Francesco decides to continue on without the aid of his teacher but gladly accepts suggestions from other teachers and experts. One of which is a local constructor of organetti and renowned composer Cav. Raffaele Pistelli.
