Forum Artistic Research


Leonardo Barbierato

Born in Alessandria in August 1992 into a family rich in musicians, Leonardo Barbierato had the opportunity to study with renowned artists and, in 2016, he graduated cum laude at the Conservatory of Alessandria. Driven by a strong curiosity for the natural world, in 2018, he earned a degree cum laude in biology. In 2020, he completed his Master’s degree at the Conservatory of Piacenza. These works form the basis for the development of his artistic research, leading him to win a scholarship for AReMus, a second-level Post-Graduate Master’s program held in the Conservatory of Rome in 2022. In 2023, he joined the PhD program at the University Roma Tre. Currently, his research focuses on the interrelations between improvisation and ecology. The output of this project includes an album, called [insita], released in 2023, and a series of site-specific improvisation performances, [in situ], taking place from 2023 to 2025.
