His acclaimed performances, delivered with great personal warmth and artistic consideration, enhance the audience's connection with the music, the musician, and the moment.

Musically trained under the guidance of Stefano Grondona and Frédéric Zigante, Oscar Ghiglia and Lorenzo Micheli, Pietro Locatto is a multi-scholarship and awarding winning Italian guitarist. Pietro has a deep interest in Spanish guitar music of the first half of the twentieth century and his research in the field of Iberian music in collaboration with cellist Martina Biondi is leading to the publication of his first album. Concurrently, invited by the magazine Seicorde, he created an album dedicated to bachian transcriptions from the harpsichord, the lute, and the cello, published for the series "I Maestri della chitarra". In 2019 he was the only guitarist to win a collaboration with the Teatro Regio of Turin. He has been interested in teaching for many years and he is currently working as a teacher at the Conservatorio di Bergamo, as a visiting professor at the LPMAM of London, besides being invited to hold masterclasses in several Italian festivals and other occasions.
