Meet Salvatore Petrone, a man whose passion for music has led him on a remarkable journey. Born in Naples in 1971, Salvatore has always loved entertainment. His talent was evident from a young age when his dad gave him a keyboard at 8. By 14, Salvatore performed in shows led by the famous Neapolitan actress Luisa Conte. He fell in love with the piano when he saw it at one of his shows and knew it was his true calling.

Despite earning a diploma in chemistry in 1990 and starting university, Salvatore boldly decided to drop out and pursue music full-time. In 1999, he won a competition that funded MidiSound Studio, a recording studio for young talents, which he ran for twenty years. Salvatore's love for British music eventually led him to move to the UK in 2016, where he worked as a sound technician for an indie film, donating his earnings to earthquake victims in Italy.

Salvatore's exceptional talent and passion for music have not gone unnoticed. In 2020, he entered a competition at Abbey Road Studios, making it among the top ten composers. In 2023, he graduated with honours, delving deeper into music and dementia.

Alongside his music career, Salvatore has shown an unwavering commitment to using his talents to impact the lives of others positively. While playing music for patients in a care home, Villa Scalabrini, for those with dementia, Salvatore recognized the power of music in enhancing their lives. His personal experience has led him to focus on this field, and today, Salvatore is known as a pioneer in creating original music backed by a scientific understanding of people with dementia.

Salvatore's story is not just one of musical talent and success; it is a testament to the power of passion and perseverance. He has shown us that we can achieve our dreams and make a difference in the world with hard work and determination. Salvatore Petrone is an inspiration and a true example of what we can accomplish when we follow our hearts.
