Giovanni Cigliano

An eclectic and versatile guitarist, Giovanni Cigliano, is an artist with an unmistakable surname (he is the grandson of Fausto, a well-known Neapolitan singer).

His skill lives up to expectations.  A graduate of the San Pietro a Maiella Conservatory in Naples, he has dedicated himself to different musical styles under the guidance of both the greatest Neapolitan artists of the time, and the wider international musical scene.

He has studied classical guitar, jazz, fingerpicking, finger percussion, and electric guitar.  Most recently, he has studied flamenco at the conservatory of Terni under Juan Lorenzo, Lucio Pozone and Ernesto Bravo Perez, and country guitar at MMI in Biella under Andrea Cesone.

Cigliano collaborates actively with a number of schools and academies in Naples.  He has collaborated musically with several nationally recognised artists – for example, in 2013 he took part in the Italian tour of the well-known presenter Alessandro Greco.  He endorses and works with La Mancha, a prestigious Spanish brand of classical and flamenco guitars.  In 2014 he released his first solo acoustic disc entitled "DREAM" dedicated to the use of open tunings.
